Continuing to get closer to finalizing their roster, the Red Wings assigned two more players to Grand Rapids on Tuesday.

The Detroit Red Wings have assigned defenseman Doug Janik and goalie Joey MacDonald to the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins.

Neither player was expected to make the Red Wings, so these two moves come as no surprise. Janik will serve as veteran defensive depth down in Grand Rapids, as will MacDonald for the goalie position.
