Report: Zetterberg still out, but Colaiacovo back

by NHL.com Staff / NHL.com

The Detroit Red Wings will be without Henrik Zetterberg again when they face the Colorado Avalanche on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN), but will get defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo back in the lineup, according to a report from Ansar Khan of mlive.com.

Colaiacovo, who missed the past 33 games with a sprained left shoulder, will replace rookie Brian Lashoff in the lineup and skate alongside Brendan Smith, coach Mike Babcock said.

Zetterberg missed Sunday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks with a groin issue that isn't quite better yet.

"Well, it's still day-to-day. I will say I feel a few percent better today than yesterday,'' Zetterberg told reporters. "That’s improvement. So we're still doing good treatment and hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow."
