Detroit Red Wings make pair of roster moves

Deciding to (once again) waive defenseman Jonathan Ericsson wasn’t the only roster move that the Detroit Red Wings made on Tuesday.

They’ve re-assigned forwards Taro Hirose and Givanni Smith back to the Grand Rapids Griffins, and at the same time have removed Anthony Mantha and Frans Nielsen from injured reserve. Mantha will make his return tonight against the Sabres.
