Ericsson (lower-body) will not play Thursday and is questionable for the weekend.
Ericsson will miss his third consecutive game on Thursday and he is questionable for the Red Wings’ weekend back-to-back as well. With Ericsson and Niklas Kronwall sidelined, Xavier Ouellet will remain in the lineup until one of them is set to return.
Ericsson (upper-body) will return to the Red Wings lineup on Thursday.
Ericsson has missed the last five games with an upper-body injury, but will be back in the lineup on Thursday. Ericsson is not an viable fantasy option having only scored one goal with four assists in his first 32 games.
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 (ribs) will return to the Red Wings blueline on Wednesday.
Ericsson has missed the last 10 games with a rib injury that he suffered on December 23. Ericsson is expected to be reunited with Niklas Kronwall on the Red Wings' top pair. He has eight points (1G / 7A) in 29 games this season.
