The Daily: Berggren Status Unclear; Ex-Red Wing Shows Value



Jonatan Berggren, Red Wings

The Detroit Red Wings recalled Jonatan Berggren from the Grand Rapid Griffins on an emergency basis Saturday. However, it’s unclear whether he will really receive an opportunity to play.

Robby Fabbri is now out a month, but  Griffins player Austin Czarnik is replacing him. Berggren is up because another forward is nursing an injury. He may or may not play. Coach Derek Lalonde has also said he may go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

Berggren has three assists in two games with the Griffins this season. He scored  15 goals last season for Detroit, but didn’t make Detroit’s roster in training camp. It didn’t help him that he was one of the few Red Wings who could be sent to Grand Rapids without going through waivers.

Red Wings’ Next Game

Today, the Red Wings play the Senators in Ottawa (1p.m ., Bally Sports). One of the turning points of last season came when the Red Wings lost back-to-back games in Ottawa. They were physically dominated by the Senators and fell by scores of 6-2 and 6-1.

Red Wings In Case You Missed It

  • Red Wings leading scorer Alex DeBrincat is not expecting a warm reception when he returns to Ottawa where he played last season. Fans believe  he engineered the trade to Detroit.
  • Robby Fabbri will be out another month with an undisclosed lower body injury. Originally, the Red Wings believed he would be back quickly,
  • Can we call Detroit vs. Ottawa a true rivalry? Dylan Larkin believes you can.
