Pearce to Toledo

To make room for Daniel Larsson, the Grand Rapids Griffins sent netminder Jordan Pearce to Toledo. Walleye ... I wonder why.

The Griffins' press release ...

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday reassigned Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Jordan Pearce to the Toledo Walleye of the ECHL.

Pearce, 22, backed up Thomas McCollum during the Griffins’ season-opening 3-1 win in Peoria on Saturday. Upon the completion of stellar career at Notre Dame last spring, the Anchorage, Alaska, native made his American Hockey League debut in Grand Rapids’ 2008-09 regular season finale at Peoria on April 11, 2009, stopping 33 shots in the team’s 5-2 loss.

Why do you wonder why?

Wasn't that always the plan - to send Pearce to the ECHL?
