Jobu strikes again: Red Wings will play without Mikael Samuelsson due to morning skate injury

Bad news from Fox Sports Detroit's Trevor Thompson: Red Wings forward Mikael Samuelsson took a puck off a hand during the morning skate, and while nothing's broken, scratch that, Fox Sports Detroit is reporting that Samuelsson's left hand may be broken after taking a slapper from Ian White, and that he's going to have x-rays tomorrow, Samuelsson's not going to play tonight vs. Nashville:

Game-day post was also updated very late w/ game-day videos of Tootoo and Babcock from the Wings.

Update: Urgh. Confirmation:

Update #2: Khan mit text:

Quick pregame update:

Detroit Red Wings forward Mikael Samuelsson is out for tonight's game against the Nashville Predators after being hit in the left hand with a shot by Ian White during the morning skate.

Samuelsson will be re-evaluated Wednesday. General manager Ken Holland said he is "day-to-day.''
Samuelsson returned to the lineup on Sunday, after missing 12 games with a pulled groin. The club planned on using him at the right point on the first power-play unit tonight.

Patrick Eaves replaced Samuelsson in the lineup.

Are you shitting me?  Not that Sammy is an important cog.. but seriously.. If I were a god fearing man I’d be afraid to drive home tonight.

I knew Tootoo would be the best of our off-season acquisitions.  Between Colaiacovo and Samuelsson, holy shit.  All they did was tie-up cap space.  Good to see they’ll be nice a gelled with the team on the ice next year.  Jobus Christo

is there any other team on the NHL with more man-games lost to injury this year?!?
I seriously doubt it…

Nope, FSD put up a graphic showing our injuries almost double to 2nd most injury riddled team.

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.
