Detroit Red Wings center Cory Emmerton cleared waivers today and was reassigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Emmerton has been out since Jan. 18 with an injured finger but is healthy now, which enabled the club to waive him.

He appeared in two games after being recalled from the Griffins on Jan. 16 to replace Joakim Andersson.

Emmerton, 25, initially was waived on Sept. 29 and went unclaimed. He played in four games with the Red Wings before being assigned to Grand Rapids. He returned to Detroit for five games in December before going back to the Griffins.
