The Detroit Red Wings today recalled right wing Evgeny Svechnikov from the American Hockey League's Grand Rapids Griffins under emergency conditions. Originally drafted by the Red Wings in the first round (19th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, Svechnikov is in his second professional season and has recorded 22 points (7-15-22) and 56 penalty minutes in 52 games for Grand Rapids. After producing just five points (2-3-5) over the team's first 26 games this season, Svechnikov has tallied 17 points (5-12-17) in 25 games since Dec. 30, including eight points (1-7-8) in his last 11 games. Svechnikov helped the Griffins climb back into the AHL's playoff picture, as the team collected points in 24-of-28 games (21-4-0-3) from Dec. 22 to Feb. 28 to move into second place in the AHL's Central Division prior to dropping their last two contests.
