Nielsen left Tuesday’s game following an “unnecessary hit to the head.”

Nielsen was caught by a hit from David Backes during the first period of last night’s game. The hit to the head earned Backes a hearing with the Department of Player Safety and is likely going to keep Nielsen out “for a little bit,” according to head coach Jeff Blashill.

Nielsen (upper-body) will likely return to the lineup on Saturday.

Nielsen missed the last three games with an upper-body injury that he suffered last Friday vs. the Islanders. Nielsen is set to return tomorrow and should skate between Tomas Tatar and Dylan Larkin tomorrow. Nielsen has had one of his worst seasons in a long time, having recorded just 26 points (10G / 16A) in 51 games in his first year with the Red Wings.
