Detroit Red Wings make pair of surprising roster moves

The Detroit Red Wings are in the midst of a 10-game losing streak and apparently they are willing to make some surprising moves to shake things up a bit.

According to the Red Wings, they have assigned forwards Filip Zadina and Taro Hirose to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Nation, do these moves surprise you or is this just a case of the Red Wings wanting to get the youngsters some more action as they have a bit of a break before their next game?
