Griffins and Wings swap goalies


The Detroit Red Wings on Monday recalled goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from the Grand Rapids Griffins and assigned goaltender Petr Mrazek to the Griffins.

Gustavsson was successful in his one-game conditioning stint with the Griffins,
winning his debut on Sunday with 26 saves in a 2-1 victory over the Charlotte
Checkers. The win improved the 28-year-old’s career AHL record to 4-1-1, with a
1.11 goals against average and a 0.956 save percentage. The Danderyd, Sweden, native owns a 39-45-15 record, a 2.98 GAA and five shutouts in 108 career NHL games.

A native of Ostrava, Czech Republic, Mrazek made his first two NHL appearances while with the Red Wings, posting a 1-1 record, a 2.02 goals against average and a 0.922 save percentage. The 21-year-old netminder has appeared in 25 games with the Griffins, sporting a 16-7-1 record, a 2.26 GAA, a 0.916 save percentage and one shutout.

The Griffins will play three games in three nights this weekend, starting with
a return to Rockford for the eighth and final game this season against the
IceHogs on Friday at 8:00pm. The team will welcome the San Antonio
Rampage for back-to-back home games on Saturday at 7:00pm and Sunday at 4:00pm.
