Wings recall Smith from Grand Rapids
DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced that defenseman Brendan Smith has been recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins (AHL). Smith, 22, has appeared in seven games for the Griffins this season, posting two points (0-2-2) and 20 PIM.
Currently 5-4-1 on the season, Detroit is back in action tonight when the Calgary Flames pay a visit to the Motor City for a 7:30 p.m. showdown at The Joe. The first 7,500 fans in attendance at tonight’s ‘Bobblehead Thursday’ contest will receive a free Henrik Zetterberg bobblehead compliments of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC), home of the Red Wings’ team doctors. Five (5) of the bobbleheads given away at this game will be brandished with a distinct marking on the inside of the box lid. Fans receiving these specially-marked bobbleheads will win a post-game meet-and-greet with Zetterberg outside of the Red Wings’ locker room.
Tickets to all Red Wings home games are available at the JLA Box Office (313-396-7575), all Ticketmaster (800-745-3000) outlets, and online at DetroitRedWings.com.
