GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Thursday assigned defenseman Brian Lashoff to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
An alternate captain, Lashoff has 10 points (3-7—10), a plus-two rating and 26 penalty minutes in 47 Griffins games this year. The 26-year-old has also skated in five games in Detroit this season and averaged 12:30 of ice time.
