The Daily: Danielson May Play Game 2 for GR; USA Adds Goalie



Nate Danielson, Red Wings prospect

Grand Rapids Griffins coach Dan Watson told the Detroit Red Wings website that Nate Danielson is an option he will consider for his team’s Game 2 against the Milwaukee Admirals on Monday in Milwaukee.

The Griffins have a 1-0 lead against the Nashville Predators’ American Hockey League affiliate.

Watson told writer Jonathan Mills he wants to “See if (Danielson) can be up to speed with us, but he’s certainly a good option for us for the lineup.”

The Red Wings reassigned Danielson to Grand Rapids after his Portland Winterhawks were eliminated from the playoffs.

Danielson is a candidate to make the Red Wings next fall, although the most likely scenario would be time with the Griffins. Drafted ninth overall last June, Danielson totaled 67 points in 54 games this season in the WHL.
