The Detroit Red Wings continue to whittle away at their training camp roster.
The club has placed goaltender Calvin Pickard on waivers, TSN’s Chris Johnston announced Saturday.
The Red Wings are down to just two goaltenders in training camp. It would appear they will enter the season with a tandem of Alex Nedeljkovic and Thomas Greiss in net, as was largely expected.
Detroit previously waived defensemen Luke Witkowski and Dan Renouf on Friday. Both players went unclaimed and will likely be assigned to the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.
The following 32 players remain in Red Wings training camp:
  • Forwards (21): Filip Zadina, Robby Fabbri, Jakub Vrána (inj.), Mitchell Stephens, Lucas Raymond, Pius Suter, Taro Hirose, Riley Barber, Michael Rasmussen, Carter Rowney, Kyle Criscuolo, Givani Smith, Jonatan Berggren, Bobby Ryan, Tyler Bertuzzi, Dylan Larkin, Adam Erne, Patrick Curry, Sam Gagner, Joe Veleno, Vladislav Namestnikov.
  • Defensemen (9): Nick Leddy, Filip Hronek, Marc Staal, Gustav Lindström, Seth Barton, Moritz Seider, Danny DeKeyser, Troy Stecher, Jordan Oesterle.
  • Goaltenders (2): Thomas Greiss, Alex Nedeljkovic.
Detroit will wrap up its pre-season schedule Saturday with a 3:00 p.m. ET matinee game on the road against the Buffalo Sabres.
