Lots more injury news with the Red Wings, and none of it is good.
First, captain Henrik Zetterberg is being moved to the long-term IR list, to make room for the recall of goalie Petr Mrazek, who was called up from Grand Rapids. Mrazek takes the place of Jimmy Howard, who according to The Majors Facebook feed, has tweaked a knee. The move of Zetterberg to long-term IR means Z is not eligible to return to the Red Wings until December 28.
Second, much-ballyhooed free agent signee from last summer, Stephen Weiss, has a groin injury and the pain is so severe that he had to shut it down during practice today in St. Petersburg, FL, where the Red Wings are preparing to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.
Onward and upward.
