DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned goaltender Calvin Pickard to the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins.

The Red Wings have 31 players on their preseason roster: 20 forwards, nine defensemen and two goaltenders. Detroit concluded its eight-game preseason slate on Saturday in Buffalo with a 4-4-0 record. The team will officially begin the 96th season in franchise history on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. when it hosts the back-to-back Stanley Cup-champion Tampa Bay Lightning at Little Caesars Arena.
