Slightly strange news from ESPN's Pierre LeBrun regarding Red Wings forward Jan Mursak:
Detroit also places Jan Mursak on waivers today

I'm guessing that the Wings want Mursak to get playing time, but potentially losing a warm body given the injury parade of late seems strange.
The Free Press's Helene St. James is confirming (update: ditto for MLive's Ansar Khan) and while we wait for practice news, here's something to tide you over:
Optional practice for #RedWings. Kyle Quincey not on ice.
