From Detroit Red Wings:

Svechnikov was recalled by Detroit on Oct. 7 but has yet to see game action in the NHL this season. The 22-year old made his season debut with the Griffins on Oct. 5 after missing the entire 2018-19 campaign due to injury and picked up three points (1-2-3). The former first-round pick (19th overall) of the Red Wings in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft has appeared in 16 NHL games with Detroit, notching four points (2-2-4) and eight penalty minutes. He has also appeared in 132 AHL games with the Griffins over the last four seasons, recording 77 points (28-49-77) and 122 penalty minutes, helping the team win a Calder Cup championship in 2017. A native of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia, Svechnikov spent two seasons with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League before turning professional, logging 157 points (64-93-157) and 167 penalty minutes in 105 games from 2014-16.

The Red Wings are currently in Vancouver where they will take on the Canucks at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.
