Samuelsson in tonight for sure. Will play with Eaves and Emmerton.
This means Todd Bertuzzi is out. Samuelsson has been out almost all season having played in just four games. He will skate on the Red Wings fourth line as well as play the point on the second power-play unit.
Wings said Samuelsson has upper body injury and will not return to game.
Samuelsson was playing in his first game in over a month and was injured again. He has had a hard time staying healthy this season. The Red Wings were getting spanked so maybe they just kept him out as a precaution.
Per Ken Holland, #RedWings F Mikael Samuelsson has non-displaced fractured finger. Out minimum 2 weeks.
It has been a nightmare return to the Red Wings for Samuelsson he missed 12 of the Wings first 14 games with a groin injury. Once he returned he played in one game before fracturing his finger in practice yesterday and will now be out of the lineup for at least two weeks.
Mikael Samuelsson a go tonight, too, when Wings face Minnesota.
Samuelsson has only played in 2 games this year. He will be back in the lineup tonight for the Red Wings. He is not a great fantasy option but with all the Wings injuries he could get some extra chances to shine.
