Wings assign Tollefsen to Grand Rapids
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Red Wings on Monday assigned defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (OH-lay-KRIHS-tyahn TOHL-uhf-suhn) to the Griffins, the organiation's American Hockey League affiliate.

Tollefsen, 25, was acquired by the Red Wings from Philadelphia on Saturday along with the Flyers’ fifth-round pick in the 2011 draft, in a trade for forward Ville Leino. Various injuries this season have limited Tollefsen to just 18 games with the Flyers, during which time he contributed two assists, 23 penalty minutes and a plus-one rating.

The Oslo, Norway, native signed with Philadelphia last summer after spending three full seasons with Columbus, which selected him with its third choice (65th overall) in the 2002 draft. Tollefsen appeared in 145 games with the Blue Jackets, posting 10 points (4-6—10) and 273 PIM. He missed all but 19 games last season due to knee surgery.

Tollefsen is expected to join the Griffins for practice on Thursday in Austin, Texas, and make his Grand Rapids debut on Friday when they visit the Houston Aeros at 8:35 p.m. EST.
