Wings recall goaltender McCollum
The Detroit Red Wings today announced that goaltender Thomas McCollum has been recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Red Wings announced that goalie Tom McCollum has been recalled from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.

He has appeared in 17 games for Grand Rapids this season, posting a 10-6-1 record with a 2.69 goals against average, .899 save percentage and one shutout. McCollum kicked aside all 20 shots he faced in a 3-0 win over the Chicago Wolves on Dec. 7, 2012, to register his lone shutout of the season.

McCollum was called up to the 23-man roster when the Red Wings placed forward Jan Mursak on injured reserve. Mursak suffered a shoulder injury during the first period of Saturday’s 6-0 season-opening loss to the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center. The 5-foot-11 and 190-pound right wing from Maribor, Slovenia, is expected to miss a minimum of two weeks, but will be re-examined by team officials later this week when the Red Wings return to Detroit.

The Red Wings are currently on a two-game road trip to start the 2012-13 campaign and are scheduled to face-off against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday night at 7:30 p.m. EST at Nationwide Arena (Fox Sports Detroit, NBC Sports Network and 97.1 The Ticket).

Detroit’s 2013 home opener is scheduled for Tuesday, when Jaromir Jagr and the Dallas Stars pay a visit to Hockeytown for a 7:30 p.m. showdown at The Joe.

Tickets to this match and all 24 of Detroit’s home games are currently available for purchase at the JLA box office (313-396-7575), all Ticketmaster (800-745-3000) outlets, and online at DetroitRedWings.com.
