Detroit Red Wings At Practice Before Facing Toronto Tonight

All via tweets from Ansar Khan,

Abdelkader (lower body injury) not skating today. Bertuzzi is skating. Oddly, Smith is wearing white jersey, skating with bottom 6 forwards.

Helm on the ice but not taking part in drills. Looks like Mrazek will back-up Howard tonight. Gustavsson spending much of practice on side.

Ferraro is here practicing.

Alfredsson skating with Legwand and Franzen. Nyquist skating with Sheahan and Tatar.

added 11:19am, Khan tweet again,

Babcock said Abdelkader out up to 2 weeks with cut in leg from skate.

Babcock said Bertuzzi game time decision. If he can't play Ferraro will make NHL debut and Smith will play at forward.

added 11:42am, Smith talks about moving to forward, watch it below...

If the chance of Tootoo scoring are the same as Smith scoring, I would want,Tootoo.

If it was Tootoo vs Samuelsson or Lashoff then I’d take Tootoo, but I think those are the only two Red Wings I would take Tootoo over.  And I would take much of Grand Rapids’ roster over him too.

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
