Detroit Red Wings center Joakim Andersson is out indefinitely with a broken foot sustained when he was hit by Dominic Moore's shot during the second period of Detroit's 3-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

The Red Wings have five centers on injured reserve: Andersson, Pavel Datsyuk (sore right knee), Henrik Zetterberg (back surgery), Darren Helm (upper body) and Stephen Weiss (sports hernia surgery). Detroit acquired veteran David Legwand from the Nashville Predators at the NHL Trade Deadline and will call up Cory Emmerton from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the American Hockey League.

Riley Sheahan and Luke Glendening are the other healthy centers on a team fighting to make the playoffs for a 23rd consecutive season.

Longer overtime to be discussed at GM meetings

Sunday, 03.09.2014 / 7:52 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The format for overtime and expanded video review are expected to be among the issues that take center stage this week at the annual March meeting of the NHL's general managers.

Three days of meetings begin Monday.

The general managers most recently met in November, in Toronto. The discussion on potential changes to the current overtime format was tabled until the March meetings. At the time, there appeared to be traction among the GMs for changing the format to increase the length of overtime in an attempt to have more games end before the shootout, a subject originally brought up by Ken Holland of the Detroit Red Wings.

Various overtime formats were discussed in November, including adding more time to the current format, which is a five-minute, 4-on-4 sudden-death session. There were also discussions of expanding the overtime and adding a 3-on-3 element before going to the shootout portion of the tiebreaker.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
