Ian White finally made his way back into the lineup on Saturday night, replacing Kyle Quincey after Quincey took a redirected puck to the face Friday in Edmonton. And it looks as if White will be on the ice for the foreseeable future:
Four to six weeks for Quincey
— Ted Kulfan (@tkulfan) March 18, 2013
Quincey suffered multiple fractures on the play, in which he reached to block a shot, only to tip the puck into his own cheek. Kulfan also reported that Quincey and the Wings have not yet decided if surgery is necessary.
A four-to-six-week timetable puts Quincey’s status for the remainder of the regular season in jeopardy. Detroit closes out the 48-game schedule on April 27, so even the shortest recovery period could push Quincey’s return into the playoffs.
BEST OF MAXIM
My technological odyssey continued on Monday afternoon, so I took a little time to attend to something I'll need to write a short story about one day...
And the Red Wings and their fans received bad news, bad news and more bad news in the injury department.
In theory, we all assumed, Kyle Quincey had only suffered a chipped cheekbone, and could be back within a week or two...
The Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson dedicated the bulk of his "Hockey World" column and blog entries to the Red Wings this week, engaging in a fascinating interview with Wings GM Ken Holland about the possibility that Detroit might not make the playoffs for the 22nd straight season, and they talk about the Wings' unrestricted free agents-to-be, too.
Pavel Datsyuk has scored some pretty amazing goals for the Red Wings since first donning the legendary Motown sweater in 2001, but one of his finest tallies came last month when he skated through the entire Predators team before burying the biscuit in Nashville.
The 34-year-old went end-to-end against the Preds to tie things at three goals apiece and it was so ridiculously amazing...
Good sign or bad sign?
With Darren Helm on horizon, #RedWings return Gustav Nyquist to Grand Rapids.

The Grand Rapids Griffins are confirming (as are the Red Wings)...
NYQUIST REJOINS GRIFFINS
The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned right wing Gustav Nyquist to the Grand Rapids Griffins.
A native of Halmstad...
Just when you thought the Wings could be overcoming the injury bug that’s plagued them all season… another setback.
While preparing for his anticipated return Wednesday, Red Wings forward Darren Helm lasted less than 10 minutes on the ice when his back once again became an issue. This is according to the Detroit Free Press.
“Yeah, I think we’re dealing with a little minor...
Detroit Red Wings fans were buzzing about the rumor of Pavel Datsyuk possibly bidding farewell to play in Russia.
This video comes to you through multiple hands...I stumbled upon it via RedWingsFeed, and Sportsline's Brian Stubits saw it via a Tweet from NHL.com's Dave Lozo, but it's worth the effort. NHL.com took Pavel Datsyuk's end-to-end goal against Nashville and de-pixelated it, added some sound effects and turned it into a clip reminiscent of most over-30 hockey fans'...
The injury fairy made an appearance at the Red Wings' Tuesday morning practice, but MLive's Ansar Khan reports that Patrick Eaves escaped a serious injury after taking a puck to his jaw:
Patrick Eaves does not have a fractured jaw. It's just sore and he's day to day, Ken Holland said.

College UFA G Jared Coreau of Northern Michigan in DET tomorrow. Tentative agreement in place with Wings tho actual signing date TBD.
— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) March 19, 2013
via Matt Wellens of the Mining Journal,
Coreau has one more year of NCAA eligibility left, but has decided to forgo his senior season at NMU.
As first reported by The Mining Journal...
Well, for as much gruff (technical term) we give our Uncle Mike? He's not one to pull punches. You want to see Darren Helm any time soon? Put the pipe down.
Babcock says Helm suffers setback and chance of playimg Wednesday is pipedream
— Ted Kulfan (@tkulfan) March 18, 2013
Every other Digger is reporting the same thing. And you heard about Quincey...
The Red Wings received Sunday off after wrapping up their three-games-in-four nights trip through Western Canada with an overtime win over Edmonton and a big win over Vancouver, and the team will get some time to rest their bumps and bruises as they won't play again until they host the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday.
Before spending all night flying back to Detroit, MLive'...
The Detroit Red Wings took an all-night flight to Detroit after going 2-for-3 on their Western Canadian road trip thanks to a 3-2 OT win over Edmonton on Thursday and a sometimes wild and wacky 5-2 win over Vancouver on Saturday night.
As such, the Wings will hit the tarmac at Metro Airport after 6 AM EDT finding themselves in fifth place in the Western Conference with 33 points...
Many of us remember a month back when Pavel Datsyuk went end-to-end through all five Nashville Predators to beat goalie Pekka Rinne.
Many of us also remember 18 years back when we played NHL 94 while drinking Slice.
Here is a video via NHL.com that combines the majesty of said Datsyuk goal with the timeless SFX and graphics-package of NHL 94.
It's the end of a college hockey era (with an open pracice on Friday in the offing), via the Red Wings' PR department:
