Big Picture for Red Wings and Simon Edvinsson
Edvinsson had been called up to make his NHL debut on Saturday and though he didn't reach the score sheet in his first two games with the big club, he did make his presence known. Edvinsson was expected to be sent down to Grand Rapids with the return of Gustav Lindstrom.
In Grand Rapids, Edvinsson played in 51 games scoring five goals and adding 22 assists. Hopefully, the news about Edvinsson isn't serious as he is a big part of the Red Wings' future plans and showed in two games that he can be a force in the NHL.
