A couple days after sending their first round pick from 2015 in Evgeny Svechnikov back to his junior team, the Detroit Red Wings have trimmed the preseason roster even further. The team announced 10 more cuts today, leaving the total number of players remaining at 46. Today's move leaves no more camp invitees on the roster.

More from the Red Wings below:

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today assigned forwards Martin Frk and Marek Tvrdon, defenseman Richard Nedomlel and goaltender Jake Paterson to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins. Additionally, the Red Wings released forwards Kurt Etchegary, Jeff Hoggan and Joel Rechlicz and defensemen Jared Nightingale, Nathan Paetsch and Andrew Prochno from their tryout agreements.

Detroit’s roster currently stands at 46 players: 28 forwards, 14 defenseman and four goaltenders. The Red Wings host the Boston Bruins tonight at 7:00 p.m. at Joe Louis Arena and will visit Boston (Monday at 7:00 p.m.) and Pittsburgh (Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.) before wrapping up the preseason with a home-and-home against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday, Oct. 2 at Joe Louis Arena and Saturday, Oct. 3 at the Air Canada Centre.
