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.

Ericsson suffered two fractured ribs in Monday's 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders at Joe Louis Arena and will be out three-to-five weeks, general manager Ken Holland said.

Ericsson is severe blow to the already decimated Wings' lineup. If you were relying on him for fantasy purposes, consider that Jakub Kindl will received increased playing time, but you can probably find better options on your waiver wire.

The RedWings have signed Jonathan Ericsson to a six-year extension with an annual cap-hit of $4.25 million.

Ericsson was the very last pick in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, but has developed into a rock-solid defenseman for the Red Wings. He has not been a fantasy factor with a career-high of 15 points, but has become a solid shutdown defenseman skating on the top-pair with Niklas Kronwall. He is averaging 22:16 TOI through 15 games this season. He has one goal and four assists which has him on pace for five goals and 24 points. He has a legitimate chance of making Team Sweden's Olympic roster as well.
