The Red Wings have reassigned Joe Veleno to Grand Rapids (AHL).
Veleno was loaned to Team Canada for the World Juniors and scored one goal with five assists in six games en route to winning a gold medal. The 19-year-old now heads back to the AHL, where he has amassed 12 points (5G / 7A) in 29 games as a rookie.
The Red Wings have signed Joe Veleno to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Veleno dropped to the Red Wings in last summer’s draft, where he was selected No.30 overall. Veleno dominated the QMJHL where he was third in the league in assists (62), fourth in points (104) and seventh in goals (42). Veleno will have an opportunity to make the Red Wings out of training camp but could head to Grand Rapids (AHL) for some extra seasoning.
