A 5’9″, 175-pound center who shoots right, Criscuolo will likely draw into the Red Wings’ lineup for their game in Ottawa on Sunday.

With Givani Smith injured and Tyler Bertuzzi ineligible to play in Canada due to his unvaccinated status, Criscuolo will likely be the Red Wings’ 12th forward against the Senators.

The Red Wings fell to the Senators by a 5–2 score in Detroit on Friday. Lucas Raymond scored both goals for Detroit, which fell to 26–33–9 with the loss.
