Video- Notes On A Non-Game Day

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

Center Jacob de la Rose, who left Tuesday's 3-2 victory over the Rangers after the second period with an accelerated heart rate, is back in Detroit.

"He'll undergo some more testing tomorrow," Blashill said. "I don't really have any further update except he's doing fine, he's doing good. We've got him lined up to see a specialist and then potentially another specialist to make sure. We want to be extra cautious and make sure we get this handled and know exactly what the issue is."

When de la Rose was with the Montreal Canadiens at the beginning of the season, he experienced a similar thing after their final preseason game in Ottawa.

After the Wings claimed him on waivers in October, de la Rose was medically cleared to play.

That is not likely to be the case before the Wings conclude this road trip.

"It would be hard for me to think he's going to be ready to play Saturday, that he'll have been cleared by that point," Blashill said. "I don't want to speculate past that. But as of today I don't anticipate him on this trip."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
