Red Wings activate Gustavsson, re-assign Mrazek
The Detroit Red Wings have activated goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from injured reserve and assigned Petr Mrazek and Cory Emmerton to the AHL.

The Detroit Red Wings have activated goaltender Jonas Gustavsson off injured reserve.

The Red Wings also assigned goaltender Petr Mrazek and forward Cory Emmerton to Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.

Gustavsson is expected to be the backup to starter Jimmy Howard, but he hasn't played this season after suffering a groin injury during the preseason. He was 2-2-1 in seven appearances last season.

Howard has started all four games this season for the Red Wings, who are 2-2-0 following their 4-2 home loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday.

Emmerton, who has played in 125 games with the Red Wings over four seasons, had one assist in four games this season.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
