Taro Hirose is on waivers, as is Riley Barber

Per Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, the Wings are waiving Taro Hirose to send im to Grand Rapids:

Carrick/Larsson (ANA); Jonsson-Fjallby (BUF); Gelinas, Lajoie, Leivo, Noesen, Smith (CAR); Carlsson, Lehtonen, Stenlund (CLB); Delia, Subban (CHI); MacDonald (COL); Petrovic (DAL0; Barber, Hirose (DET); Carlsson, Gibson (FLA)…— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) October 10, 2021

Which Chris Johnston confirms:

Collin Delia (CHI), Malcolm Subban (CHI), Jacob MacDonald (COL), Alex Petrovic (DAL), Riley Barber (DET), Taro Hirose (DET), William Lagesson (EDM), Kyle Turris (EDM), Lucas Carlsson (FLA), Christopher Gibson (FLA), Austin Strand (LA), Austin Wagner (LA) …— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) October 10, 2021

So it looks like Givani Smith and Carter Rowney make the Red Wings’ roster for now.

No word on Bobby Ryan’s try-out contract.— George Malik (@georgemalik) October 10, 2021

I’m expecting Lucas Raymond and Joe Veleno to be sent down to Grand Rapids to start the season, but, again, I do not expect them to end the season in Grand Rapids.— George Malik (@georgemalik) October 10, 2021
