McCollum Reassigned to Griffins


In the same night that he made his NHL debut and gave up 3 goals on 8 shots, Thomas McCollum was sent back west to Grand Rapids.

McCollum knew he was only here temporarily, filling in as backup to third-string Joey MacDonald until starter Jimmy Howard was healthy.

It must hurt, though, that his first taste of big league action resulted in such bitter disappointment.

He will be available to backup Jordan Pearce on Friday as the Griffins continue their push for the playoffs.
