The Red Wings on Wednesday recalled defenseman Kyle Quincey
from the team's AHL affiliate in Grand Rapids and assigned center Valtteri Filppula
to the minor league club.
Quincey, 21, is tied for first among Griffins defensemen in scoring with four points, including three assists in nine games. A second-year pro, he made his NHL debut with the Wings on Nov. 25, 2005 at Anaheim, and he'll be available to play tonight when Detroit hosts Calgary.
Filppula, 22, appeared in four games with the Wings since being recalled on Oct. 19, scoring his first NHL goal against Manny Legace in Detroit's 3-2 win at St. Louis on Oct. 28. He has scored two points (1-1-2) in as many games with Grand Rapids this season, and possesses a 10-game point streak that equals the sixth-longest scoring run in Griffins' history.
