Ian White had a hell of a game Saturday, getting probably one of the nicest goals and certainly had the nicest save.  The only problem with that is that it was with his face.  Unfortunatly the puck won that battle and White is out with an injury.

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.'' 


It is a shame, because White was just starting to roll.  At least it is only out one or two week.  Plus, we might be able to see Smith get a game or two as well.

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.

It'll be nice to see what the kid can do.  He's had a bit of a slow start in GR, only getting 5 points (all assists) in his first 11 games, but we know his potential is much higher than that.
