Three Join Walleye - Griffinshockey.com
The Wings sent Vili Saarijarvi and Dylan Sadowy to Toledo on Monday. This is Saarijarvi's second stint with the Walleye this year and it's looking more and more like Sadowy isn't going to pan out with a demotion/kiss-of-death to the ECHL. I'm not as willing to call this such a downer for Saarijarvi, who is in his first pro season at 20 and has only managed to get into four games with the Griffins so far this season on a blue line that Todd Nelson is keeping intentionally tight, but man I would prefer the kid be playing every night with Grand Rapids.
