Six prospects to watch in Grand Rapids

Veleno, Berggren headline roster for Griffins

by Ethan Sears @ethan_sears / DetroitRedWings.com

The Grand Rapids Griffins open their season on Friday night, and the Red Wings will be watching with interest.

One of the things about being a team built around youth: your AHL affiliate holds outsize importance.

When the Griffins drop the puck against the Rockford IceHogs at 7 p.m. on Friday, they'll do so with a roster that includes a number of players that could play for the Red Wings - either this year or further down the line. After a heated competition for roster spots during training camp, this group will be eager to prove themselves and earn call-ups to Detroit as soon as possible.
