Zetterberg out for two weeks

From early reports, Henrik Zetterberg will be out two weeks at the least with a slightly separated shoulder. Zetterberg was absolutely rocked on clean hit from Mattias Ohlund and left the game last night.

Zetterberg leads Detroit in scoring with 32 points (10 G, 22 A) and has been a vital part of the success despite the other injuries this year. The loss for two weeks will be huge as the Wings have numerous games against Central Division opponents. Zetterberg would have been a big help in making up ground but the Wings will have to do without him.

Filling his spot? If Darren Helm can return from his injury he's likely to fill the starting spot (not on Z's line probably, but just the vacancy). However, if Helm is unable to return, the Wings may need to call up another Grand Rapids player to fill the spot. We'll keep you posted on the injury and replacement process as it happens.

Chime in with your thoughts though. If the Wings were to call up a Griffin who would you want to see? Note: Tatar is playing for Slovakia right now.
