How the mighty have fallen...

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (CP) -- Curtis Joseph will determine how long his conditioning stint with the Detroit Red Wings' AHL affiliate lasts.

The veteran NHL goalie practised with the Griffins on Wednesday and Thursday and was to start Friday night against the Utah Grizzlies.

"It's certainly my call," Joseph told the Detroit Free Press when asked how long he'd stick around. "That's how it was described to me, 'Whatever you want to do."'

It'll be his first action after recovering from summer ankle surgery.

"I'm looking forward to getting in a game and testing it out," he said.

He will wear 30 on his sweater instead of his usual 31 because Joey MacDonald wears 31.

Wings goaltending coach Jim Bedard says Joseph has worked hard.

"He'd done everything I've asked him to do," Bedard said. "You come here, you grab an oar, get in the boat and you row like anybody else.

"Obviously, he's got no attitude toward anything but that."
