Detroit -- The news on Jonathan Ericsson was as good as could be expected for the Wings.
Tests revealed a deep bone bruise on his left knee and in his calf muscle, but no structural damage.

"What I've been told is that he'll be out a minimum of two weeks, but we will know a lot more in a week or so," general manager Ken Holland said.

Ericsson was injured Monday on a check from Phoenix captain Shane Doan in the first period.

Holland said the Wings will recall Doug Janik from Grand Rapids to replace Ericsson.

"Janik has the ability to kill penalties, and Jonathan Ericsson was eating up a lot of minutes on our penalty-kill," Holland said. "We needed a guy with the same ability to eat up those minutes."

Janik, who has played in one game with the Wings this season, had 15 points and a plus-10 rating in Grand Rapids.

Darren Helm, who has a strained tendon in his wrist, will be evaluated again Wednesday. He could play Thursday against Tampa Bay.

Given our luck this season, this is about as good of news as we could have had.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Great news! The Wings won't want a member of their top PK tandem gone for months.

I think Janik will do just fine in the PK department while ericsson is gone, imo he's always been a bit overrated on this board. The good PK got alot to do with a certain #17 and #23 down low among others.

Thank God! He'll be coming back amidst the influx of injured players also. Talk about a morale booster.

Good news I guess. It could have been a lot worse.

I havn't seen much of Janik's play. Is he physical? I want to see him throwing his body around out there.

I don't know about any of you, but I'm kind of getting pumped for early to mid-January when Fil, Ericsson, Cleary, and Williams are all scheduled to come back within like a three week span. Dare I dream about a full roster in February?

Honestly, I'm beyond shocked this wasn't worse news. The way he got hit and went down, I thought it was likely his season.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I definitely thought it would be worse. Great news.

The only thing that SLIGHTLY worries me is that all of these players are going to be returning at once, is this going to cause an adjustment period where they get back into playing form? Lets hope not!

Thats great news if it turns out he only misses a couple weeks to a month. It looked much worse.

Well, good news if this is the case.

Hopefully Holland's not just saying this to keep Wings fans from hanging themselves.
