KINDL HEADED TO DETROIT

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings have recalled defenseman Jakub Kindl from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Kindl has played in nine games with the Griffins since his Jan. 11 assignment, registering two goals, one assist (2-1—3) and 12 penalty minutes.

In 23 games with the Red Wings this season, Kindl has accumulated five points (2-3—5), 10 PIM and a plus-one rating.

In all, the Sumperk, Czech Republic, native has been a part of seven seasons in Detroit, playing in 271 games and totaling 67 points (16-51—67) and 145 PIM. Kindl has also appeared in 19 Stanley Cup playoff games with the Red Wings (2013 through 2015), registering five points (1-4—5) and 12 PIM.

Kindl has amassed 248 career games with the Griffins (2005-11; 14-16), notching 93 points (16-77—93) during that span and earning a starting nod in the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic.

Detroit’s first choice (19th overall) in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft, Kindl is the second-highest Wings draft pick to ever play for the Griffins, behind only Dylan Larkin (15th overall in 2014). Kindl has made an appearance in eight different seasons as a Griffin, ranking second all time in franchise history. Travis Richards (1996-06) holds the record with 10 seasons of service with Grand Rapids.

Kindl also represented the Czech Republic at the 2006 and 2007 World Junior Championships and made his men’s national team debut at the 2014 World Championship in Minsk, Belarus, where he netted three points (1-2—3) in 10 games.

The Griffins will return from the all-star break on Friday when they travel to Rockford to take on the Central Division-leading IceHogs.
