The Red Wings have placed Brendan Smith (hand) on the seven-day IR.
Smith has an infection in his hand following a fight with Nick Foligno on Tuesday night.

Smith will move to forward vs. Toronto tonight.
With all the injuries in Detroit, they are desperate and have resulted to moving D-men up front. Smith says that he has not played forward since he was 15/16 and playing AAA on a line with Sam Gagner and John Tavares. Unfortunately for him, his linemates are likely going to be Cory Emmerton and Teemu Pulkkinen, a small step-down from Gagner and Tavares I'd say.
