Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist has soreness but no significant injury as the result of a knee-on-knee hit in the final minute of a game Saturday against the Boston Bruins, according to the Detroit Free Press.
"It looked scary at the time but the initial word is that it looks like a day-to-day, short-term injury," general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press on Sunday. He said Nyquist had been thoroughly examined by team doctors.
Nyquist emerged last season with 28 goals in 57 regular-season games. His offense becomes even more important to the Red Wings with center Pavel Datsyuk out 4-5 weeks with a shoulder injury.
