Red Wings Trim Roster to 33: Re-assign Rasmussen, Hicketts

Today, October 1, the Red Wings reassigned 12 players to bring the roster down to 33 players.


The biggest name here is 2017 first round pick Michael Rasmussen. He was always expected to go back to juniors, but I was hoping for him to get a 9 game tryout with the Wings before that.

The other one is my new BFF who doesn’t know I exist: Joe Hicketts. Watching Niklas Kronwall and Jonathan Ericsson play on the Red Wings when I know it could be Joe “The Next One” Hicketts” makes me sad.

Luckily, as Mickey Redmond has made abundantly clear, the world is full of enough ginger ales to make me forget about Hicketts.
