Quick Hits: The More Games Edition

In Red Wings Land

Hellberg, 31, joined the Griffins for conditioning on Dec. 1 after being claimed off waivers by Detroit from the Seattle Kraken on Nov. 23. The 6-foot-6, 209-pound netminder posted a 2-2-0 record with a 2.50 goals-against average and a 0.932 save percentage in four starts with Grand Rapids.

I’m curious to see if they send Ned down for a conditioning stint.  At this point, fair or not, I’d play Hellberg over Nedeljkovic.

Around the League

I’d take a chance right now. I’m sure we have a few wingers that we’d be ok giving a night off just to see him play.

That’s a charge, hit from behind AND a boarding (which, yes, are three separate illegal plays).  This is the kind of shit that should get a guy three games.  That cross-check to the face from Skinner the other day should have been much more.
