Turgeon signed a one-year contract with the Red Wings on Friday. Turgeon appeared in four games with Detroit last season, registering two shots, three hits and a minus-3 rating while averaging 12:35 of ice time. The 23-year-old center didn't fare much better in the AHL, notching a mere 20 points in 72 appearances. Heading into the upcoming campaign, Turgeon figures to start the year in the minors, but he could earn a call-up or two throughout the season.
Turgeon was given a qualifying offer by the Red Wings on Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Turgeon is little more than organizational depth for the Red Wings, though he's still just 23 years of age. He's appeared in nine NHL games thus far, registering only five shots without a point.
Turgeon was dropped to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday. Turgeon has just nine career NHL contests under his belt without a point to show for it. He also managed just 19 points in 69 games at the AHL level this season. Expect him to start the 2019-20 season in the minors once again.
The Red Wings recalled Turgeon from AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday. With an assortment of injuries to Detroit's forward corps, Turgeon will jump to the NHL for the first time this season. He hasn't been tearing it up in the minors with just 19 points through 69 games, so he'll likely slot into the bottom six with Detroit.
Turgeon was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Turgeon required two surgeries to address a blood clot in his right arm, but he worked hard over the summer to get into shape for the preseason. Through four exhibition contests, Turgeon produced one goal (a game-winner shorthanded) on seven shots. He'll be a call-up candidate this season when injuries hit the parent club up front.
