Quick Hits: The Injury Update Edition

In Red Wings Land

Notes: Hronek feeling more comfortable this season | DetroitRedWings.com

INJURY UPDATE: Center Frans Nielsen and defensemen Trevor Daley and Jonathan Ericsson did not practice Wednesday.

All three are on injured reserve.

”He’s eligible to play Vancouver,” Blashill said of Nielsen. “I think he’ll be ready for that game.”

The Wings are in Vancouver Oct. 15.

It sounds like Daley is in a similar situation to Nielsen.

”First game he’s eligible is Vancouver but neither of them skated, so they’d have to get skating here a little bit, so we’ll see,” Blashill said.

So it seems we might be getting some vets back in a week or so. However, according to Jeff Blashill in the article, there is no timetable for Ericsson’s return. As far as tonight’s game against the Canadiens... it doesn’t look like there are any changes to the lineup based on yesterday’s practice.
