Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Red Wings Corner,
Dan Cleary had surgery to remove wires from his jaw this morning and remarkably was at practice and made it through every drill. He’ll be in the lineup tomorrow night.
Cleary revealed the the front of his jaw is numb and could remain that way for a long, long time. Had he chosen the other procedure—where his jaw would have been wired shut for six weeks instead of two and he would have missed the rest of the season—he wouldn’t have that numbness. That’s a pretty big sacrifice to return to the ice.
more on the Wings, not good news…
