Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said today that goaltender Jimmy Howard and forward Danny Cleary are both out for the weekend and will be re-evaluated next week.
Howard (broken right finger on Feb. 2) has been on the ice before and after practices but hasn’t faced any shots yet because of the vibration he would feel from his stick.
“It’s a four-to-six week injury to heal, the longer we can wait the less risk you take,’’ Holland said today at Michigan Stadium, during the Winter Classic news conference. “He’s been practicing, it’s really up to him. Does he feel any pain. Probably not this weekend. I’m assuming by next week he’ll be practicing and we’ll see where he’s at.’‘
The soonest Howard is likely to return is Tuesday at home against Dallas.
Howard said he is day-to-day.
