The Detroit Red Wings have placed Pavel Datsyuk (ankle) on injured reserve retroactive to September 18th.

Datsyuk is expected to return sometime in November. This move opens up a roster spot on Detroit's roster. He is a must-add when he returns to full health. The 37-year-old scored 26 goals and 65 points in 63 games last season.

The Detroit Red Wings have reduced their training camp roster to 27 players.

Heading to the AHL are: Anthony Mantha, Andreas Athanasiou, Louis-Marc Aubry, Tyler Bertuzzi, Colin Campbell, Zach Nastasiuk, Tomas Nosek, Eric Tangradi, Nick Jensen, Robbie Russo and Ryan Sproul. The team also announced that goaltender Jake Patterson will be sent to the ECHL, while Mark Zengerle and Scott Czarnowczan were released from his professional tryout. Mantha, 21, was Detroit's first round pick in 2013. He had 15 goals and 33 points in 62 games in the AHL last season.

Oct 4 - 11:18 AM

Teemu Pulkkinen returned to Detroit's lineup on Saturday night.

The 23-year-old finished with a minus-1 rating in 15:30 of ice time in Saturday's 2-1 win over Toronto. Pulkkinen had previously missed the team's last four preseason games with a lower-body injury. "For sure I was feeling good the whole time," Pulkkinen said. "I was feeling good and nothing has changed. I feel the same right now and ready to go."

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill has liked what he's seen from rookie Dylan Larkin, but that doesn't mean the rookie will break camp with the team.

"Dylan has done a good job for himself, had a good camp, and now it's our job to decide who are best 14 forwards are to start," Blashill said. The 19-year-old will begin his first full season as a pro after scoring 15 goals and 47 points in 35 games in the NCAA with Michigan last year. "There's been so much speculation and so many questions, and no one really knows," said Larkin. "Maybe the coaches know, but just to find out where I'll be living or what's happening -- I'm kind of sick of the hotel. It would be nice to know what's going on."
Oct 4 - 11:12 AM

Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill is happy with the preseason performances of Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek.

"Over the long term of the (training) camp, both guys have been real good," Blashill said. "Every single day, whether it's been games, or practices, or small games we've played (during practice). So it's like I've said -- it's better to have real good players at very every position, and goaltending is included in that, especially with the schedule we have to start the season." It will be interesting to see how the 'Wings divide their starts heading into the regular season.
Oct 4 - 11:08 AM

Anthony Mantha potted a goal for the Red Wings, who edged the Maple Leafs on Saturday night 2-1 in their preseason finale.

He scored late in the second period while on the man advantage. Mantha disappointed last season with 15 goals and 33 points 62 AHL games, but the 2013 first-round pick remains supremely talented and very much a part of the Red Wings’ future, just not right away this season. Andreas Athanasiou picked up the other goal. Petr Mrazek made 28 saves.
Oct 3 - 9:52 PM

The Detroit Red Wings waived winger Eric Tangradi.

It's remarkable that Tangradi is just 26, as it feels as though he hasn't been "working out" for quite some time, including being part of the trade that sent Chris Kunitz to Pittsburgh. Tangradi has 15 points in 143 career NHL games.
