The Detroit Red Wings have returned Joe Hicketts to Grand Rapids.
Hicketts, 23, skated in four games with the Wings this season and posted an assist and minus-four rating.
The Kamloops, B.C. native began the AHL campaign on a solid note, with seven helpers in his first eight games. That led all Griffins defensemen and tied for fifth among all AHL defenders at the time of his recall.
