Abdelkader Demoted

The Red Wings are making room! Detroit should have both Tomas Holmstrom and Jason Williams back in their line-up on Friday night and to make room for these players, they have decided to send Box 9 forward, Justin Abdelkader, down to Grand Rapids of the AHL for the time being.

To put this in perspective, Abdelkader is a young player that doesn't have to clear waivers in order to be sent down to the minors, whereas a player like Ville Leino, who has been benched and scratched normally lately, would have to clear waivers and the Wings would likely not want to risk that.
