Detroit Red Wings
Gustav Nyquist is up from Grand Rapids for the Detroit Red Wings’ Friday night game against Anaheim. The reason? Well, as Chuck Pleiness reported, another Red Wings forward has suffered an injury.
Which forward? Good question.
According to Pleiness, Wings GM Ken Holland simply revealed that a forward is hurt — but would not reveal which one, leaving the mystery until Friday’s pre-game skate.
Regardless of the answer, it’s bad news for a Wings team that is already down Todd Bertuzzi, Mikael Samuelsson, Darren Helm and Johan Franzen up front, Carlo Colaiacovo and Brendan Smith on the blue line and goalie Jonas Gustavsson.
The Wings can ill afford to lose any of their other key contributors — let alone a star like Pavel Datsyuk or Henrik Zetterberg.
So, cross your fingers, Wings fans. We’ll have to wait and see who’s out of the lineup on Friday night.
BEST OF MAXIM
Todd Bertuzzi may be done for the season, or more seeing as how he is 38.
The Detroit Free Press reported earlier tonight that Bertuzzi had been admitted to the hospital with extreme back pain.
Bertuzzi has missed Detroit’s last three games with his chronically-injured back and, following a 5-3 win over St. Louis last Thursday, “could barely walk” according to the Detroit...
DETROIT The hits just keep on coming for the Detroit Red Wings only in a bad way.
To this point, the Wings have been able to survive an early rash of injuries because top players Henrik Zetterberg, Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall remained healthy.
But Friday night, Datsyuk was out of the lineup due to a yet undisclosed injury. When the team came out for warm-ups before the...
Not good, not good. MLive's Ansar Khan wasn't able to get Red Wings GM Ken Holland name of the player who won't be able to play tonight against the Anaheim Ducks (it's on at 7:30 PM on FSD and Prime Ticket, but all of a sudden, there's confusion as to whether it will air on the NHL Network or not, so we don't know if it's gonna be blacked out for GCL and...
Ass barns. Now we know why the Red Wings recalled Gustav Nyquist, and the Wings did so because one of their most important players is "banged-up":
Pavel Datsyuk out for Wings tonight. Team says it's a day-to-day injury, not specified.

The Detroit Red Wings were handed a tough 4-3 overtime loss by the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night, after leading 2-0 early on in the game.
Tomas Tatar, recently up from Grand Rapids of the AHL, opened the scoring with a Datsyukian move at the net — Tatar corralled a loose puck just in front of St. Louis rookie netminder Jake Allen, pulled off a sensational deke, then roofed...
Rookie goalie Petr Mrazek will be back between the pipes on Sunday evening against the Minnesota Wild, MLive’s Ansar Khan reported. Mrazek made his NHL debut in a win over the St. Louis Blues on Feb. 7, then sat as Jimmy Howard made four consecutive starts — Detroit went 2-1-1 in that span, culminating in a 5-2 loss to Anaheim on Friday.
Mrazek stopped 26 of the 27 shots he faced...
The Detroit Red Wings' morning skate ahead of tonight's game against the Anaheim Ducks (7:30 PM, FSD/Prime Ticket/97.1 FM) was somewhat quiet...Until we learned that the Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist as someone Ken Holland won't name is injured up front, we found out that today's game marks Jordin Tootoo's 500th NHL appearance, that this weekend will be the...
DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings have put forward Johan Franzen on injured reserve. They also removed goaltender Jonas Gustavsson from IR and assigned him to Grand Rapids of the AHL on a conditioning loan. Franzen has missed Detroit's last two games with a hip injury. Gustavsson was signed by the Red Wings in July and has appeared in one game for them this season....
DETROIT You can call them the Red Wings of the future or the Grand Rapids Griffins call-ups, but it might be time for the Wings to call on them even more.
After the Wings dropped a 4-3, overtime decision to the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night, coach Mike Babcock said that he probably should have played some of the third- and fourth-line guys more.
Two of those guys, Tomas Tatar...
The Detroit Red Wings are back on the ice at Joe Louis Arena, hoping to rebound from a 4-3 OT loss to St. Louis despite facing a very, very tough task on Friday in battling the 9-2-and-1 Anaheim Ducks, who haven't played since defeating the Blackhawks 3-2 in a shootout on Tuesday. I'm going to be out of the office from about 12:30-2, so if there's big breaking injury...
Per MLive's Ansar Khan, good news for one of the Red Wings' players who's nicknamed "Gus":
Wings' Jonas Gustavsson was assigned to Grand Rapids for conditioning. He'll start for Griffins on Sunday. He's been out with groin injury.

The Detroit Red Wings are preparing to face off against the Anaheim Ducks tonight (7:30 PM, FSD/Prime Ticket/and as noted by @eyesris on Twitter, the NHL Network will no longer cover tonight's game, so yay, no Center Ice/GameCenter Live blackout!/97.1 FM) , and the Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness reports that the Wings are doing so under some noticeably watchful eyes (who will...
I was more than a little pissed off after the Red Wings allowed some very bad habits to manifest themselves along the way toward surrendering a 2-0 lead and eventually losing in OT to the St. Louis Blues by a 4-3 tally, and I don't feel like backing off my assessment very much.
The Wings, playing without Todd Bertuzzi (back), Darren Helm (back), Johan Franzen (hip flexor...
The Detroit Red Wings face off against the Anaheim Ducks tonight (7:30 PM, FSD/Prime Ticke/NHL Network U.S.--so that means that Center Ice and GameCenter Live Online users are screwed via an NHL Net blackout yet again!/97.1 FM, and tonight is a Niklas Kronwall "Fathead Friday") facing a stiff test in more ways than one.
The 9-2-and-1 Ducks are coming off a pair of shootout...
Certainly not the third period we were looking for. The effort was there most of the night, but turnovers were the Red Wings’ undoing in this game. The Ducks scored 4 of their 5 goals off of turnovers. Yes, injuries are a problem, but our key injuries are to forwards and the problem was on defense. Howard did what he could, but there were too many turnovers to overcome.
