Howard assigned to Grand Rapids
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (Griffinshockey.com) - The Detroit Red Wings on Monday assigned goaltender Jimmy Howard to the Grand Rapids Griffins. The rookie had served as a backup to Manny Legace during each of the Red Wings' first nine games this season.

Howard, 21, was Detroit's first choice (64th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft. During his three-year career at the University of Maine, he earned a school-record 15 shutouts while posting a 1.84 goals against average, a 0.931 save percentage and a 47-23-10 record.

As a junior last season, Howard showed a 1.92 GAA and a 0.924 save percentage in 39 games, including a 1.58 GAA and 0.940 save percentage in his 20 starts after Christmas. Four of his six shutouts came against Hockey East opponents, giving him a conference-record nine for his career. Howard's collegiate career ended with a 1-0 overtime loss to Minnesota in the first round of the NCAA tournament, despite his 37 saves.

After earning the Hockey East Rookie of the Year Award in 2003, Howard enjoyed a 2003-04 sophomore campaign that ranked among the best in Division I history. He set NCAA single-season records with a 1.19 GAA and a 0.956 save percentage, and was named a Hockey East First-Team All-Star and NCAA East Second-Team All-American.

Howard is expected to dress for the Griffins this Friday, Oct. 28, when they host the Iowa Stars at 7 p.m.
