Pavel Datsyuk makes his return to the Detroit lineup tonight as the Red Wings host the New York Rangers. He’s missed 19 games with a broken hand.
To make room for him on the roster, Jan Mursak was sent back to the Grand Rapids Griffins. Mursak was the last of the three Griffins called up when Detroit’s injury troubles began to be returned to Grand Rapids.
Not ready to come back from his own broken hand is Tomas Holmstrom. He hopes to be back in the lineup later this week.
