Detroit Red Wings Roster Moves 10/8

Red Wings Moves 11/28

The Detroit Red Wings will drop the puck on Thursday against the New Jersey Devils to start their 2023-24 season, and then on Saturday, they will face the Tampa Bay Lightning for their home opener. The Red Wings wrapped up training camp on Saturday with a 4-3 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Today, they made the final moves to trim their roster to 23 before the opener.

Red Wings Roster Moves

  • F Jonatan Berggren assigned to Grand Rapids of the AHL
  • F Cross Hanas assigned to Grand Rapids of the AHL
  • F Elmer Solderblom assigned to Grand Rapids of the AHL
  • D Simon Edvinsson assigned to Grand Rapids of the AHL
  • F Nate Danielson assigned to the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL
  • F Matt Luff place on injured non-roster
  • F Carter Mazur placed on injured non-roster

Bottom Line:

The moves today mean the Detroit Red Wings have held onto F Zach Aston-Reese, although he is on waivers. If he goes unclaimed, he would be a part of the 23. The Red Wings also held onto three goalies Ville Husso, James Reimer, and Alex Lyon, mainly because, they wanted to avoid putting Lyon on waivers and risk having him claimed as they want to have the goalie depth in 2023-24.

The Simon Edvinsson and Nate Danielson move is not surprising because of the log jam the Red Wings currently have on the roster; you’d have to imagine if someone goes down with an injury on defense, Edvinsson would be the first call-up.

However, The head-scratching move is sending down Berggren, who had a breakout season last year when he got called up playing in 67 games, recording 28 points on 15 goals and 13 assists. Hopefully, he isn’t in the AHL for long because he could be a solid scoring option for the Red Wings as a bottom-six forward this season and potentially a top-six forward in the future.
