from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Detroit Red Wings defenseman Ian White saved a goal by blocking a shot with his face on Saturday. But he paid a price. White will miss the upcoming four-game road trip due to a fractured cheekbone. General manager Ken Holland said he will be out 1-2 weeks. “He’ll be able to play with it, once it heals reasonably well,’’ Holland said. “He’ll just need to wear some facial protection.’‘ The Red Wings will recall defenseman Brendan Smith from the Grand Rapids Griffins. He will serve the fifth and final game of his NHL suspension Tuesday in St. Louis. The club will then decide whether to keep him for the rest of the trip or send him back…. Holland said the team will place either White or forward Todd Bertuzzi on short-term injured reserve to make room for Smith. more
