The Red Wings announced today the call-up of one of their top prospects.
Tyler Bertuzzi has been summoned from Grand Rapids.
The 22-year-old was last year’s playoff MVP for the AHL champion Griffins after recording 19 points in 19 games.
Bertuzzi missed the start of the 2017-18 season with an injury, but has posted nine points and 22 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Griffins so far.
A second-round pick of the Wings in 2013, he played in seven games with the NHL club last season for his first experience with Detroit.
