j ericsson

Already dealing with most of their stars being hurt, the Detroit Red Wings lost another top player on Monday night. Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson hurt his knee in a collission with Phoenix’s Shane Doan in the first period Monday, and Detroit GM Ken Holland confirmed that he’ll be out at least two weeks.

This injury weakens an already-thin blue line for Detroit, who has been without Niklas Kronwall since November 21. The Red Wings are also skating without injured forwards Johan Franzen, Valterri Filppula, Jason Williams and Dan Cleary, and are in third place, four point behind Chicago in the Central Division.
