Brad Stuart is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with a broken jaw. No surgery was required, per mlive.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Detroit Red Wings defenseman Brad Stuart won't need surgery for his broken jaw, but he will be out six-to-eight weeks, general manager Ken Holland said.

Stuart saw a doctor this morning in Vancouver. He was injured midway through the third period of Friday's 5-4 shootout win in Edmonton, on a blindside hit to the head from Tom Kostopoulos that Red Wings coach Mike Babcock described as "disgraceful.''

Holland said he isn't planning on making any moves right now. Rookie Jakub Kindl will replace Stuart in the lineup. The club also has the option to call up veteran Doug Janik or top prospect Brendan Smith from Grand Rapids, if needed.

"We got guys in Grand Rapids we think can play in the NHL, or are close,'' Holland said. "I might make some calls, but everybody is looking for the same thing -- more defense and more scoring.''

I swear, we are cursed since December. Every time we get a win, we lose a player to injury.

FYI, the usual time missed for a broken jaw is 3-6 weeks.

Before this injury, I could never play violin at all. I must break the other hand so I can play guitar.'" –Pavel Datsuk on breaking his hand

How long until those morons in Calgary blame the injury on Stuart, saying, "He should have had his head up!"?

It's such and easy call to make, 5 minutes and a game. He didn't try and make a play in the corner with Stuart and get an elbow up. It was basically a drive by elbow to the head, he had no intention of playing the puck, just Stuart's head.

:(

In the press box, where he belongs and thankfully sucking up cap space somewhere other than here... there are at least 6 other guys in the Wings system I would rather have in there over Lebda...

Babcock calling the hit "disgraceful", and then saying "it's unfortunate when that &$!% goes on" (FSD had to bleep it out).

It's funny. Reading the game day thread on the Calgary boards, you wouldn't even know Kostopolous hit anyone let alone broke someone's jaw. They literally have said nothing about it.

Tom Kostopoulos, you are so lucky this was the last game between the Wings and Flames this year. Pray you don't get traded
