DETROIT (WXYZ) - While Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi nurses a bad back, Detroit has called up forward Joakim Andersson from the Grand Rapids Griffins before its face off with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday at The Joe.
Andersson has recorded 10 goals along with 17 assists in 36 games in 2012-2013 for the Griffins. This recall marks Andersson's first stint with Detroit in 2013 after his NHL debut last year where he played in five games with the Wings.
According to the team, goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has been placed on injured reserve to make room on the 23-man roster.
