Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced on Tuesday that defenseman Jonathan Ericsson is expected to be out two to three weeks with a shoulder injury.
Ericsson injured his left shoulder in Saturday’s loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. He missed Monday’s shootout loss to the San Jose Sharks while attending to the birth of his daughter. An MRI later in the day confirmed the injury.
Should Ericsson miss the full three weeks, that would be 21 days and nine games, not enough time for him to be placed on long-term injured reserve.
