The Detroit Red Wings have traded forward Scott Wilson to Buffalo for their 5th Round pick in the 2019 Draft.
Acquired in October, Wilson failed to register a point in 17 games with the Red Wings. He joined Detroit as part of the deal that saw Riley Sheahan move to Pittsburgh.
Wings GM, Ken Holland, confirmed that no one would be called up from Grand Rapids prior to the game against Winnipeg on Tuesday. Any decision on a call-up would be made Wednesday, he confirmed.
Most likely contenders for a call-up are Matt Puempel, who has 20 points (8G, 12A) in 21 games this year. Tyler Bertuzzi, who featured in seven games for the Red Wings last season, could provide a grittier alternative. Bertuzzi missed the start of the AHL season through injury, but since returning has 9 points (5G, 4A) in 12 games.
