Kopecky joins Wings in San Jose
DETROIT - Tomas Kopecky will look to make his long-awaited
NHL debut tonight when the Red Wings visit San Jose to take on the Sharks (10:30 p.m. ET, FSN).

Kopecky was called up from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League on Sunday to join the Red Wings on their three-game west coast road trip. He will more than likely crack the lineup in tonight's contest due to the absence of Swedish gold medal-winners Tomas Holmstrom, Niklas Kronwall, Nicklas Lidstrom, Mikael Samuelsson and Henrik Zetterberg.

All five players celebrated their country's Olympic victory on Monday and will re-join the team on Wednesday when the Wings travel to Anaheim to take on the Mighty Ducks.

Kopecky is the tenth member of the Griffins to join the Wings this season.
