DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned left wing Mitch Callahan to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

A native of Whittier, Calif., Callahan became the eighth player to make their NHL debut with the Red Wings this season in last night’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. In 9:01 of ice time, the 22-year-old forward recorded two hits and one takeaway. He currently ranks among the Griffins’ leaders with 25 goals (2nd), 40 points (3rd), a plus-21 rating (1st), 51 penalty minutes (5th), six power-play goals (T2nd), two shorthanded goals (1st) and 185 shots on goal (1st). In 185 games with Grand Rapids since 2011-12, the 6-foot, 195-lb., forward has tallied 69 points (42-27-69) and 247 penalty minutes. Originally drafted in the sixth round (180th overall) by Detroit in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, he appeared in 204 WHL games with the Kelowna Rockets from 2008-11 prior to turning professional and helped the team to the 2009 Ed Chynoweth Cup as WHL champions. He notched 128 points (57-71-128) and 440 penalty minutes during his time with Kelowna.

Currently sitting in the Eastern Conference’s second Wild Card spot, the Red Wings (33-25-14) will open up a stretch of three games in four days when they host the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday at 7:00 p.m. (FOX Sports Detroit/97.1 The Ticket). The team will also take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. before returning home to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
