The Red Wings have lost center Valtteri Filppula for 6-8 weeks with a broken right wrist.
Filppula was hurt in the second period of Thursday’s 6-5 shootout loss at Edmonton when he was hit by Gilbert Brule.
“I feel terrible, but nothing I can do now,” Filppula said.
“It’s not good,” Henrik Zetterberg added. “It’s tough to lose a player and especially Fil, he plays a lot of minutes and plays in all situations, so it’s a tough break for us.”
General manager Ken Holland said the team would not be recalling anyone from the minors, as they have enough forwards to go around.
