Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard hurts knee in practice and will miss at least 1 game

DETROIT - The Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was injured a knee in practice Wednesday.

That led to the Red Wings recalling Petr Mrazek from the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins and putting forward Henrik Zetterberg on long-term injured reserve.

The Red Wings have ruled Howard out for Thursday night's game at Tampa Bay and plan to reevaluate him Friday in Detroit.

Zetterberg hasn't played since Dec. 1 because of a back injury and is eligible to return Dec. 28 against Florida.

Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
