Update #6: Here's the Detroit News's Ted Kulfan on Datsyuk:
Forward Pavel Datsyuk has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bruins. Datsyuk didn’t practice Tuesday. He likely has a concussion, though the Wings have not termed it as such.
"He'll go through the process and we'll talk to him after that," said Babcock, who added Datsyuk went through a light stationary bike workout Tuesday. "We'll go through the protocol and see what happens."
Forward Henrik Zetterberg has been communicating with Datsyuk regularly since Datsyuk got hit on the chin Saturday by Ottawa defenseman's Jared Cowen.
"He's not 100 percent," Zetterberg said. "We just have to wait until he is. He's not ready to go. I've been talking to him and it's tough to see when you know he wants to go, but he knows he can't. When it's your head like that, you have to be cautious and wait it out."

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.
