Gustavsson assigned to Grand Rapids
Wings assign Gustavsson to Grand Rapids; Forward Johan Franzen placed on injured reserve

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today announced that goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has been removed from injured reserve and assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League on a conditioning loan. To clear a roster spot for Gustavsson’s assignment, the team has placed forward Johan Franzen on injured reserve. Franzen has missed Detroit’s last two games on Feb. 13 vs. St. Louis and Feb. 15 vs. Anaheim with a hip injury.

Gustavsson, 28, was signed by Detroit to a two-year contract on July 1, 2012. The Danderyd, Sweden, native has appeared in one game for the Red Wings this season, replacing starter Jimmy Howard in the third period of Detroit’s 6-0 season opening loss to the St. Louis Blues on Jan. 19 at Scottrade Center. Gustavsson faced eight shots and made seven saves in his Red Wings debut. The 6’3”, 192-lb. netminder has missed the last 13 games due to a groin injury.

Gustavsson has posted a 39-45-15 record with a 2.98 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and five shutouts in 108 career appearances with Detroit and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
