DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned right wing Teemu Pulkkinen to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

Pulkkinen, 22, leads the Griffins and is tied for 13th in the AHL with 49 points (24-25-49) in 58 games this season. The winger paces all AHL rookies in goals and is currently second in the league in scoring among first-year players. The Vantaa, Finland, native appeared briefly with the Griffins last year after his season in Finland concluded, recording one assist in two regular-season games and five points (3-2-5) in 14 postseason contests. Pulkkinen skated in 185 career games with Jokerit of Finland’s SM-Liiga from 2008-13, totaling 128 points (49-79-128). He was named the league’s rookie of the year in 2010-11.

Pulkkinen rejoins the Griffins as they prepare for back-to-back home games against the Iowa Wild tonight and tomorrow. The Red Wings are back in action when they host the New Jersey Devils tonight at 7:30 p.m. (FOX Sports Detroit/AM1270).
