The Red Wings have placed Michael Rasmussen (hamstring) on IR.
With Danny DeKeyser set to return to the Red Wings lineup on Tuesday, Rasmussen has been placed on IR so they could keep Filip Hronek on the roster. Rasmussen won’t play Tuesday and will probably remain out through Friday.
Rasmussen (lower-body) will not play Tuesday but is expected to return this weekend.
Rasmussen was a late scratch from Sunday’s lineup and will miss his second straight game on Tuesday. Monitor the rookie’s status as the Red Wings head into their back-to-back on Friday/Saturday.

Rasmussen will draw back into the Red Wings lineup on Thursday.
Rasmussen will be a healthy scratch on Monday.
Rasmussen has collected just one assist while averaging 12:33 TOI/GM through the first five games of his NHL career. Being scratched tonight will give Rasmussen a chance to learn a few things from watching and allows Martin Frk a chance to make his season debut.
The Red Wings select Michael Rasmussen with the 9th overall pick.
Rasmussen is a huge kid, standing in at 6-foot-6, 215 lbs. and his big frame had NHL teams intrigued. Rasmussen had 55 points (32G / 23A) in 50 games and led the Tri-City Americans (WHL) in power-play goals (15). The Canadian skates well for his size and will bring a power-forward type of game to the Red Wings lineup.
