Andersson (lower-body) has been activated from IR and will return tonight.
Andersson missed the last six games, but will return to the Red Wings injury ravaged lineup tonight. He will skate on what is listed as the top-line, with Gustav Nyquist and Justin Abdelkader, but the Wings really have lines 2A, 2B, 2C right now.
#RedWings calling up Joakim Andersson to offset loss of Todd Bertuzzi.
Andersson has 10 G and 17 A in 36 games this season for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL. He has only played 5 games in the NHL. If he cracks the Red WIngs lineup and scores he could stay up with the big club, depending on how long Bertuzzi is out, but for now he is irrelevant in fantasy.
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings assigned eight players today to the Grand Rapids Griffins: forwards Chris Conner, Joakim Andersson and Landon Ferraro; defensemen Doug Janik, Garnet Exelby and Brian Lashoff; and goaltenders Joey MacDonald and Jordan Pearce.
