Red Wings Send Newbury to Griffins, Recall Ritola

The Detroit Red Wings assigned forward Kris Newbury to the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins, the team announced on Monday.

This leaves the Red Wings with only eleven healthy forwards. Mattias Ritola will be called up from Grand Rapids to fill the open position.

"We've lost two in a row, and we liked what we saw from Ritola in training camp this year," general manager Ken Holland said. "Newbury gave us a good little push there, but you know, we are going to try something else... Shake it up a little."
