The Red Wings are now down to 10 defensemen. In addition to the six NHL defensemen who were on the roster this summer, still here are prospects Derek Meech, Jonathan Ericsson and Kyle Quincey and free-agent tryout Brent Sopel. Ericsson and Quincey can be sent to Grand Rapids without having to clear through waivers.
The team has three goaltenders with Jimmy Howard likely destined to be the Griffins' No. 1 netminder.
At forward, the Red Wings have 20 on the roster. In addition to the 12 there in the summer, remaining are: free-agent tryout Aaron Downey; prospects Igor Grigorenko, Darren Helm, Evan McGrath, Mattias Ritola and Johan Ryno; and minor-league veterans Matt Ellis and Mark Hartigan.
