DETROIT — The Grand Rapids Griffins’ leading scorer is heading to Detroit and will be in the lineup Sunday afternoon with the Wings host the Tampa Bay Lightning.

According to Wings general manager Ken Holland, the team has called up Tomas Jurco from Grand Rapids to take Justin Abdelkader’s roster spot.

Abdelkader left Saturday’s 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins after taking an elbow to the head by Derek Engelland.
