Svechnikov underwent successful surgery on his right knee and will miss 5-6 months.
The Red Wings have placed Evgeny Svechnikov on the non-roster injured reserve.
Svechnikov was banged in the Red Wings’ preseason game on Saturday and it looks like it will cost him a spot in the opening night roster. The power-forward was on the bubble, but will likely make his season debut in Grand Rapids (AHL) as soon as he is healthy.

The Red Wings have assigned Evgeny Svechnikov to Grand Rapids (AHL).
Svechnikov picked up two goals and two assists (four points) in 14 games during his call-up.

The 21-year-old has collected seven goals and 15 assists (22 points) in 52 games with Grand Rapids this season.
The Red Wings will call-up Evgeny Svechnikov Grand Rapids (AHL) on Thursday.
Svechnikov will miss the rest of the preseason with strained muscles in his neck.
Because of the Red Wings salary cap situation, it was a stretch for Svechnikov to make the opening night roster and this injury all but seals his fate. The 20-year-old will likely open the season with Grand Rapids (AHL), where he had 20 goals and 31 assists (51 points) in 74 games last season.
