Detroit Red Wings put veteran forward Jakub Vrana on waivers

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Red Wings have placed forward Jakub Vrana on waivers. It comes a little more than two weeks after he returned from the player assistance program set up by the NHL and NHL Players’ Association. It’s also a week after assigning him to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins on a conditioning loan. The 26-year-old is from the Czech Republic. He has 98 goals and 91 assists in 323 career regular-season games. Detroit is four games over .500 and hosts the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night.
