Red Wings: Franzen lands on short-term IR, end seems near

The Red Wings announced Thursday that forward Johan Franzen would be placed on the short-term IR as his post concussion symptoms have returned. Franzen recently missed the team’s last game against Tampa Bay Tuesday night after feeling less than 100 percent. This of course could only seem like a setback for Franzen in his full time attempt at a comeback after missing 33 games last...

Detroit Red Wings: Franzen expected to be ready for camp

Earlier this month on isportsweb, I discussed the situation surrounding Detroit Red Wings’ forward Johan Franzen, and whether it was time for him to retire from the NHL.  Citing numerous head injuries and a fear of existing brain damage, I believe it would be best for Franzen, who turns 36 December, to step away from the game. However, earlier this week, reports surfaced once...

Reuters When you’re a professional athlete, you can pretty much afford anything you need, within reason.  In theory, that should make it harder to hop for gifts for professional athletes.  That is, unless you’re Wings winger Johan Franzen looking to purchase a gift for teammate Gustav Nyquist.

Red Wings: Johan Franzen gets Nyquist Babcock inspired bedsheets

It looks like Red Wings forward Johan Franzen isn’t going to have as hard of a time getting over Mike Babcock as Gustav Nyquist will. Or at least that’s how Franzen wants it to appear.

Johan Franzen’s return still in question

Detroit Red Wings forward Johan Franzen knows only one way to play the game of hockey and that is a very physical, in your face style. While he is an accomplished offensive threat, his game is grinding, banging and hitting anything that gets in his way. Unfortunately, playing that rugged style makes injuries a common occurrence, […] The post Johan Franzen’s return still in question...

Franzen return still unknown after most recent concussion

It doesn’t sound like Red Wings forward Johan Franzen will be suiting up for the Wings anytime soon. According to Ken Holland, Franzen, who suffered concussion symptoms the day after a blindside hit from Edmonton’s Rob Klinkhammer back on Jan. 6, still hasn’t been cleared to resume on-ice activities by team doctors. It also doesn’t appear as though getting cleared isn’t...

Johan Franzen to IR, Wings recall AHL Goals Leader Teemu Pulkkinen

Johan Franzen can’t go very long without getting hurt and he kept the streak alive last night after hitting the IR with what the Wings are calling an “upper-body issue.” An issue? Like he has emotional baggage from his childhood issue? It’s an injury, call it what it is. Does calling it an “issue” make it seem less severe? Even if it did, why bother? Franzen’s 22 points...

Video: Alex Burrows takes a skate to the face

There was a frightening moment in the Detroit-Vancouver game when Johan Franzen’s skate came up and cut Alex Burrows on the top of his cheek. Burrows immediately left the ice for repairs, but he was able to return to the ice along with some new stitches. Burrows should be thankful this was a glancing blow and that Franzen’s skate didn’t hit him more directly. (H/T Pro Hockey Talk)
