Jonathan Ericsson News
Detroit Red Wings
Ericsson will miss 6-8 weeks with a fractured wrist.
Ericsson fractured his wrist when he was hit from behind by Nicklas Backstrom late in the first period of the Red Wings’ loss in Washington. Ericsson will miss at least six weeks, which means he may be back with only 10 games left in the season. Xavier Ouellet is expected to be back in the lineup on Saturday with Ericsson sidelined.
Ericsson (back) will not play on Tuesday; expected to play on Thursday.
Ericsson was on the ice for the Red Wings’ morning skate, but will miss his third consecutive game due to back spasms. Ericsson is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Kings.
Ericsson (back spasms) will miss Friday's game vs. the Blue Jackets.
Ericsson is listed as day-to-day with back spasms, so he will be replaced by Alexey Marchenko, who has missed the last eight games.
Ericsson (lower-body) will return the Red Wings lineup on Saturday.
Ericsson (lower-body) will not play Thursday and is questionable for the weekend.
Ericsson will miss his third consecutive game on Thursday and he is questionable for the Red Wings’ weekend back-to-back as well. With Ericsson and Niklas Kronwall sidelined, Xavier Ouellet will remain in the lineup until one of them is set to return.
Ericsson (lower-body) is questionable for Sunday's game.
Ericsson missed Saturday’s practice and has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bruins. If Ericsson can’t play look for Jakub Kindl to get back into the Red Wings lineup.
Ericsson (upper-body) will return to the Red Wings lineup on Thursday.
Ericsson has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, but will be back in the lineup on Thursday. Ericsson is not an viable fantasy option having only scored one goal with four assists in his first 32 games.
Ericsson (shoulder) will be in the lineup on Friday.
Ericsson missed Thursday’s practice as a precaution, but was on the ice for the Red Wings’ morning skate and will play tonight vs. the Flames. Ericsson has just one assist in his last 12 games.
Ericsson, who has been sidelined since March 18 with a broken finger, began skating on his own last week but still can't fully grasp a stick and has yet to take part in practice.
While they could use his size in the lineup, it's unlikely that the Wings will get anything out of Ericsson during their series vs. the Bruins.
Ericsson (finger) is likely out until the middle-to-late part of the first round.
Should the Red Wings qualify for the postseason, they will be without Jonathan Ericsson for the majority of round one. Brendan Smith will continue to take his spot alongside Niklas Kronwall.
Ericsson will be out 4-6 weeks after undergoing successful surgery on his finger.
For the sixth consecutive game the Red WIngs lost a player to injury. Ericsson is gone for the remainder of the regular season and part of the playoffs, if the Red Wings qualify.
Ericsson will likely miss two weeks with a broken finger.
Ericsson was the latest Red Wing to be injured in Tuesday's win over the Maple Leafs. Ericsson's broken finger could require surgery and GM Ken Holland estimates he will be out two weeks. The injury likely will prompt Babcock to move Danny DeKeyser to the top pairing with Niklas Kronwall, as he did earlier this season when Ericsson missed a total of 20 games with a separated shoulder and broken ribs.
