Wings Recall Ferraro

March 17, 2014 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Grand Rapids Griffins News Release

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Detroit Red Wings on Monday recalled center Landon Ferraro from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

A native of Trail, British Columbia, Ferraro has spent the last three full seasons and part of a fourth (2009-10) with the Griffins, notching 95 points (46-49 - 95) and 135 penalty minutes in 190 career AHL games. Detroit's first choice (32nd overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Ferraro has netted 28 points (13-15 - 28) and 44 PIM in 60 appearances this season.

Ferraro, 22, led the Griffins with 24 goals last season, finished third on the team with 47 points (24-23 - 47) and paced the AHL with seven shorthanded points (3-4 - 7). The 6-foot, 182-pound forward ranks among the Griffins' all-time playoff leaders with 11 assists (T9th), one shorthanded goal (T1st), two game-winning goals (T6th) and one unassisted goal (T5th), all captured en route to leading Grand Rapids to its first-ever Calder Cup championship last season.

The Wings will host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., when Ferraro could make his NHL debut and become the 142nd Griffins alumnus to play in the NHL. With his recall, there are now 11 members of Grand Rapids' Calder Cup championship team on Detroit's current roster, compared to 10 who remain on the Griffins' roster.

The Griffins will play consecutive road games against the Iowa Wild on Friday (8:05 p.m. EDT) and Saturday (2:05 p.m. EDT) before traveling to Allstate Arena for a match against the Chicago Wolves on Sunday (4 p.m. EDT).
