The Detroit Red Wings lost another player to injury Tuesday in a loss to the Dallas Stars when defenseman Ian White sustained a severe cut above his knee.
Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the media White could miss two to three weeks. This is the latest setback for a team that's already missing defensemen Jakub Kindl (groin), Jonathan Ericsson (hip) and Carlo Colaiacovo (shoulder).
Holland signed free-agent defenseman Kent Huskins on Tuesday in an attempt to ease the losses on the back end. According to The Detroit News, Colaiacovo is expected to be out up to a month. Kindl should return Friday against the Minnesota Wild, and Ericsson is expected to return soon.
Additionally, the Red Wings expect forwards Todd Bertuzzi (flu) and Darren Helm (back) and goalie Jonas Gustavsson (groin) to return Friday against the Minnesota Wild.
