DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings today recalled forward Christoffer Ehn from the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins.

Ehn, 23, has made the Red Wings out of training camp each of the last two seasons, appearing in 74 games with Detroit in that span. He's totaled nine points (3-6-9) and eight penalty minutes since making his NHL debut on Oct. 4, 2018. Ehn also skated in 17 regular-season games with the Griffins last season, notching seven points (2-5-7), a plus-four rating and eight penalty minutes. In the Griffins' playoff series last year, Ehn added two assists and two penalty minutes over five AHL postseason contests. The Skara, Sweden, native spent the previous three seasons (2015-18) playing professionally for Frolunda of the Swedish Hockey League, producing a career-high 17 points (7-10-17) and 23 penalty minutes in 50 SHL games during the 2017-18 campaign.

In 147 total SHL games with the Indians, Ehn registered 32 points (11-21-32) and 38 penalty minutes, while adding one goal and two assists in 46 career postseason games. He helped the club win an SHL championship in 2015-16, as well as back-to-back championships in the Champions League tournament in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Originally drafted by the Red Wings in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Ehn twice represented at the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2015 and 2016, totaling four points (1-3-4) in 14 games over the course of the two showcases. Prior to his draft year, Ehn skated for Frolunda in the junior ranks, where he was named the league's best forward in 2014-15 after totaling 36 points (12-24-36) in 40 games as Frolunda's captain at the under-20 level.
