Red Wings defenceman Brendan Smith out 2-4 with sprained right shoulder

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings have taken another hit on defence.

Detroit put rookie Brendan Smith on injured reserve Monday and he will be out two to four weeks with a sprained right shoulder.

The Red Wings also sent goaltender Thomas McCollum to the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins. They called up and forward Tomas Tatar from the Griffins along with goalie Petr Mrazek to eventually give Jimmy Howard a break. Howard has played in all of Detroit's eight games this season because backup Jonas Gustavsson has been out with a groin injury.

Detroit recently got banged-up defencemen Jonathan Ericsson and Jakub KIndl on the ice and has been without defencemen Ian White and Carlo Colaiacovo because of injuries.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
