Franzen on IR

08 January 2015 - 08:28 PM

Didn't see a post on this ... didn't know he was injured.  When?   That's one way to get him off the ice.  From Yahoo NHL: 

 

DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Red Wings have put forward Johan Franzen on injured reserve because of an upper-body issue.
 
Detroit recalled forward Teemu Pulkkinen from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL on Thursday.
 
The 35-year-old Franzen has seven goals and 15 assists in 33 games this season. He did not play Wednesday night in Detroit's victory at Calgary.
 
The 23-year-old Pulkkinen leads the AHL with 20 goals in 33 games. His current eight-game goals streak for Grand Rapids tied the franchise record. He played three games for the Red Wings last season.
 
Detroit plays at Washington on Saturday night.
