Detroit Red Wings Call Up 11 Grand Rapids Griffins For Remainder Of Playoffs

The Detroit Red Wings called up 11 players from the Grand Rapids Griffins Monday to join the team for the remainder of the playoffs, according to Peter Wallner of MLive.com.

The players will practice with the team and, although eligible to play, they likely will just absorb the playoff experience... They trail the series 2-1. The Griffins’ regular-season ended Sunday without a playoff berth.

The 11 players are Tom McCollum, Travis Ehrhardt, Garnet Exelby, Doug Janik, Brian Lashoff and Brendan Smith, Joakim Andersson, Louis-Marc Aubry, Fabian Brunnstrom, Francis Pare and Tomas Tatar.

The Red Wings host the Nashville Predators in game four of the Western Conference quarterfinals at 7:30 p.m. EST Tuesday. Detroit lost on its home ice, 3-2, in the game three.
