    Red Wings' Joakim Andersson: Re-assigned to AHL

    Andersson was assigned to AHL Grand Rapids by the Red Wings on Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive reports. Andersson has been back and forth between Detroit and Grand Rapids all season, as he has struggled with his consistency this season. He's never been much of a fantasy contributor, with only one season of more than 10 points, but has even less value now that he's not playing every night in Detroit. With the way things are rolling for Detroit right now, Andersson will likely need an injury to get back into the lineup.

    Red Wings' Joakim Andersson: Heading back to Detroit

    Andersson returns to the Red Wings on Tuesday after a brief stint in the AHL. Andersson went unclaimed on waivers before being assigned to AHL Grand Rapids. In 26 outings this season, the center has a meager three points. Given his lack of offensive production, combined with averaging a nominal 9:17 of ice time per game, the 26-year-old would be a reach in most leagues.

    Red Wings' Joakim Andersson: Clears waivers, still with parent club

    Andersson has cleared waivers, but Red Wings general manager Ken Holland indicated that he will not be assigned to the minors Saturday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. The Wings risked Andersson going to another team by waiving him Friday. After all, fellow defenseman Niklas Kronwall (knee) is on injured reserve but since Andersson went unclaimed through waivers, the Swede gives the Winged Wheel a healthy option on the blue line.
