The Grand Rapids Griffins, who are the AHL affiliate of the Detroit Red Wings, have dropped the first two games of the 2012 season.

The Detroit Red Wings' AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, are off to an 0-1-1 start in the American Hockey League. The Griffins fell to Milwaukee in the opener on Friday before losing to Hamilton in a shootout the following night, and currently sit in third place in the Midwest division.

Center Landon Ferraro and left wing Jeff Hoggan lead the club with two points apiece. Both players have one goal and one assist in the early going. C Joakim Andersson, RW Francis Pare and LW Trevor Parkes have scored goals for the Griffins as well. Top prospect Brendan Smith notched an assist in the loss to Hamilton.

Grand Rapids has started two different goaltenders in their first two games. Jordan Pearce was the netminder for the opener, and stopped 23 of 26 shots in the loss. The Griffins went with Tom McCollum on Saturday, and he had 33 saves in 36 chances, but allowed one out of Hamilton's four shooters to score in the shootout, while Grand Rapids went 0-for-5.

The Griffins return to the ice on Friday night in Rochester, N.Y.
