Red Wings Prospects on Twitter: Albin Grewe released by Ilves Tampere

This one is weird. Red Wings Prospects on Twitter reports that Ilves Tampere of the Finnish Liiga has released 20-year-old Albin Grewe outright after 5 point-free games for the Liiga team:

Albin Grewe has been released by Ilves. #LGRW— Red Wings Prospects (@DRWProspects) October 5, 2021

Ilves’ press release just says that Grewe didn’t post a point in 5 games, and that his 1 year +1 year-option contract has been terminated. This is more or less what the GM has to say (roughly translated):

“We would like to thank Albin for the work done for Ilves and wish him luck in his new challenges,” comments Ilves’ Sports Director Timo Koskela .
