The Goose Is Loose: Gustav Nyquist Called Up By Red Wings

Lots of this please - Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

He's finally here. Now what will he do?

It's the moment we've all waited for. For weeks we've wondered why Gustav Nyquist wasn't getting called up to join the Red Wings despite all the injuries. Tomas Tatar and Joakim Andersson have been up for weeks, but Nyquist remained in Grand Rapids.

Well Goose-watchers, fret no longer, because your dreams are coming true. The Red Wings announced today that they have recalled the much-heralded prospect and placed Todd Bertuzzi on IR. Apparently Bert's back problems are still such that he's not going to be good for a while, and per Ansar Khan it sounds like Helm hasn't even begun skating so there's no word on his return.

So there you go. Nyquist is in Detroit and we'll keep you posted on whether he's going to play tonight or not. Could we see a kid line with Tatar, Andersson and Nyquist? Who cares, he's here. Now, let the bitching about his line and ice time begin!
