The Red Wings today announced that forward Tomas Holmstrom
has been activated from injured reserve. Holmstrom suffered a groin injury late in the second period of Detroit’s 4-1 win at Nashville on Dec. 26, and has missed the last five games.
The Wings also assigned rookie forward Gustav Nyquist
to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League. Nyquist, 22, appeared in the last four consecutive games in his second NHL call-up, gathering one assist and going plus-1 while averaging just over seven minutes per game.
The Red Wings take on the Chicago Blackhawks tonight at 7:30 p.m. EST at the United Center (NBC Sports Network and 97.1 The Ticket).
