As an addendum to The “early overnight report”: the closest thing to a team of Red Wings is running into the injury bug at the World Championships. Sweden, which employs a little under half of the Wings’ participants at the Worlds, lost Fredrik Petersson‘s services thanks to a broken wrist during the Swedes’ first game; Jonathan Ericsson left the game with what is now a bruised SI joint as well, and this morning, the Tre Kronor found out that Joel (brother of Henrik) Lundqvist will miss the rest of the tournament with a fractured orbital bone. And Ericsson? Aftonbladet’s Hans Abrahamsson and Erik Karlsson report that Ericsson did not practice today, and won’t return to action until next week: Continue reading "Red Wings morning report: Ericsson remains sidelined for Sweden; more poking the Franzen bear"

Questions loom for Red Wings long offseason plans

Detroit Red Wings: Exploring the Cupboards

Ryan Sproul rips one of his heavy shots during rookie camp last year. By Rhys Richards (@RREsq) The Detroit Red Wings face several potential changes this off-season.

Recently, one of Detroit’s...

Red Wings at the Worlds, day 6 in progress and mid-day news about Babcock, Yzerman and Burr

One member of the Detroit Red Wings has completed his game at the World Championships, with two games left to go for Wings participants: Tomas Tatar didn’t register any points in Sloakia’s 4-2 win over Kazakhstan, but he played 11:32, had 2 shots and continued to show both puckhandling skill and forechecking grit despite being boxed into a somewhat limited role. Former Wing...

Red Wings mid-day news: Wings at the Worlds, day 4 in progress: Howard’s in tough vs Slovakia

“Getting it wrong” stinks when you’re in the business of not doing so whenever possible, so it is with annoyance that I must state that while the U.S. and Slovakia started playing at 1:15 PM, as advertised, Stockholm time and Helsinki time are an hour apart, so the Swedes actually face off against Denmark at 2:15 PM EDT (minus Jonathan Ericsson; both games were listed as starting...

Red Wings early overnight report: Wings at the Worlds, day 4 wrap-up and Mrazek mania

After the better part of a week’s worth of doing double time to follow Red Wings news on both sides of the Atlantic, and thanks to my yearly spring battle with insomnia, I’m more than a little bit bleary-eyed, so I’ve penned an early overnight report. I hope you don’t mind too terribly. Tuesday’s schedule at the World Championships is, by Red Wings participatory standards...

Savage: surgery won’t necessarily make Danny Cleary’s knee issues disappear

If you missed it in the overnight report, Red Wings GM Ken Holland gave the Free Press’s Helene St. James and the Detroit News’s Ted Kulfan some standard updates regarding Danny Cleary’s knee surgery, but MLive’s Brendan Savage provides us with a bit more detail as to how the damage in Cleary’s knee—in terms of arthritis and the kind of knee-on-knee grinding that cannot...

Awesome news from the London Free Press’s Morris DallaCosta: Shawn Burr finally got some good news in his battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. They have found a match for a bone marrow transplant, a transplant the former NHLer and Sarnia native will be having May 23. “He’s not feeling the best right now,” said David Goetze who runs the Shawn Burr Foundation dedicated to...

The Swedes must be crazy: a bit of gabba about a very different media Worlds

Ahead of a very busy day for the Red Wings’ participants at the World Championships—Kyle Quincey and Canada will tangle with France at 9:15 AM, Petr Mrazek probably won’t play in the Czechs’ tilt with Norway at 10:15 AM, but Jimmy Howard and Justin Abdelkader will face off against Tomas Tatar when the U.S. and Slovakia battle at 1:15 PM (on the NBC Sports Network), and every...

The ultimate ‘hockey cave’

Red Wings prospect Tomas Tatar admitted that he’d never played hockey in a cave before coming to Helsinki to take part in the World Championships, where it turns out that Hartwall Arena’s practice facility out-does any other “man cave” in the world. Per IIHF.com’s Andrew Podnieks: “The Rock” can mean many things to many people. In Canada, it’s a friendly term for...
