DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings today assigned right wing Teemu Pulkkinen to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. A fourth-round pick (111th overall) of Detroit in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Pulkkinen begins his first professional season in North America after spending the last four seasons with Jokerit in Finland’s SM-Liiga. He joined the Griffins today as the team began their week-long training camp in Grand Rapids, Mich.

The move brings the Red Wings roster down to 29 players.
