GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday assigned center Christoffer Ehn to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

??Ehn became the 173rd Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL when he skated in Detroit's 3-2 shootout victory last night against Vancouver at Little Caesars Arena. Playing his first season in North America, the 22-year old has appeared in 10 games with the Red Wings, averaging 9:19 of ice time and contributing one point (0-1-1), a plus-two rating and four penalty minutes.
