GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned forward Dylan Sadowy (SAD-oh-way) to the Grand Rapids Griffins from the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye.
Sadowy, 21, has tallied 21 points (6-15—21), a plus-two rating and 16 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Western Conference-leading Walleye. He scored the game-winning goal in Toledo’s 1-0 victory against Wichita on Sunday to push his point streak to a season-high four games.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound winger has skated in eight games with the Griffins this season and recorded seven PIM.
As a rookie in 2016-17, Sadowy picked up six points (4-2—6) and 18 PIM in 38 regular season games with Grand Rapids and was a part of the team’s Calder Cup championship. He also appeared in six games with the Walleye last season, posting four points (1-3—4) and 14 PIM.
Prior to turning professional, the Brampton, Ontario, native played four seasons (2012-16) in the Ontario Hockey League, where he totaled 188 points (116-72—188), a plus-23 rating and 245 PIM in 258 regular season games. He posted back-to-back 40-goal seasons, scoring 42 with Saginaw in 2014-15 before banking 45 in 2015-16 between Saginaw and Barrie.
San Jose’s fifth choice, 81st overall, in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, Sadowy was acquired by the Red Wings in May 2016.
The Griffins have points in a season-high nine straight games (7-0-0-2) and travel to Winnipeg to play the Western Conference-leading Manitoba Moose on Thursday and Saturday at 8 p.m. EST both days.
