Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Red Wings announced on Sunday
that forward Jan Mursak could miss up to 2-to-3 weeks with a collarbone
Mursak was hurt on the first shift of Saturday's 6-0 loss in St. Louis when he
collided with Blues forward David Backes. The 25-year-old native of Slovenia
had an X-ray and will be evaluated further once the team returns to Detroit.
The Wings play in Columbus on Monday.
In addition, the status of defenseman Jonathan Ericsson is also in doubt after
he suffered a freak right shoulder injury.
Ericsson was stricken after the puck slid under his skate blade as he went to
turn, causing him to tumble into the end boards.
One other roster move for Detroit was the recall of goaltender Thomas McCollum
from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League.
