Red Wings announce Jonatan Berggren's next step

He's seen limited NHL action this season.



The Detroit Red Wings will be back in action tomorrow night in what has become a critical matchup against the Washington Capitals, who are now occupying the 2nd Wild Card spot after leap frogging the Red Wings over the weekend; the Capitals have won two straight games, while Detroit dropped their matchup on Saturday against the red-hot Nashville Predators. 

In the meantime, they've announced a roster move, as forward Jonatan Berggren has been sent down to the American Hockey League affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins, likely bringing an end to his NHL action this season barring any further injuries.  

Via the official press release: 

"Berggren appeared in three games with Detroit from March 9-14 during his most recent call up, showing one assist and a minus-five rating. In total, the 2024 AHL All-Star has accumulated six points (2-4—6), two penalty minutes and a minus-one rating in 12 outings with the Red Wings this season. Berggren has been proficient in the AHL, as he is on an active six-game point streak (3-5—8) and leads the roster in points (19-27—46), assists (27) and goals (19) through 43 appearances this season. The prospect also has 22 points (11-11—22) in his last 19 games from Jan. 13-March 4 and 31 points (14-17—31) in his last 27 contests from Dec. 15-March 4.

A season ago, the 23-year-old registered seven points (4-3—7) in seven appearances for Grand Rapids, on top of producing 28 points (15-13—28) in 67 contests with the Red Wings. During the 2021-22 campaign, Berggren broke the Griffins’ rookie single season scoring record with 64 points (21-43—64) in 70 games, five more points than the previous record held by Teemu Pulkkinen (2013-14). Throughout three AHL seasons, Berggren has established 117 points (44-73—117) in 120 appearances. Berggren has also notched 34 points (17-17—34) in 79 NHL games with Detroit."
