Red Wings defenceman Jonathan Ericsson leaves game against Leafs with upper-body injury

DETROIT - The banged-up Detroit Red Wings have taken another hit.

Defenceman Jonathan Ericsson had an upper-body injury Tuesday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs and didn't play in the third period. He played for 13-plus minutes over the first two periods.

The Red Wings are missing several forwards and had been relatively healthy on the blue line.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
