According to a report from Elliotte Friedman, the Detroit Red Wings have made a decision on LW Adam Erne. Friedman tweeted on Saturday that Detroit has placed Erne on waivers. So far this season, he has played in 43 games for the Wings but has only scored six goals and dished out eight assists. It seems like a good bet that he will clear waivers and be sent down.
Why it Matters
Erne, who is 27, was originally selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2nd Round of the 2013 NHL Draft. He is in his fourth season with the Wings, after spending the first three years of his NHL career with the Lightning.
- The Red Wings needed to make room for Filip Zadina
- Erne will likely clear waivers
- Detroit will send Erne to Grand Rapids if he clears waivers
