Martinez (upper-body) did not travel on the Kings four-game road-trip.

Martinez was banged up in the Kings game against the Golden Knights on Saturday and will not be in the lineup on Monday. Martinez could always join the team on the trip but for now expect him to miss at least the next four games. Paul LaDue will like draw into the lineup and replace him in Detroit.

Howard is in the starter's crease at the Red Wings morning skate.

Hyman has been suspended for two games for interference on Charlie McAvoy.

Hyman will miss Tuesday’s game in Carolina and Thursday’s game in Tampa Bay before being eligible to return Saturday in Florida. Hyman was given a five-minute interference penalty on the play and was forced to answer the bell against Matt Grzelcyk. You should see either William Nylander or Patrick Marleau move back into the top-6 with Hyman suspended.
