The Red Wings' injury bug is catching,and it caught Carlo Colaiacovo in a big way on Monday, as noted by MLive's Ansar Khan:
Oft-injured defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo hurt his shoulder early in the third period of Monday's 4-3 shootout win over the Columbus Blue Jackets ay Nationwide Arena and is out for an undetermined amount of time.
“Losing Colo isn't good news for us, but it's all part of the process,'' coach Mike Babcock said.
Asked if it appears Colaiacovo will be out for weeks, Babcock said, “Yeah, it doesn't look like it's any time soon.''
General manager Ken Holland said Colaiacovo will see a doctor in the morning to determine the extent of the injury.
The Wings may or may not have Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) back in the lineup on Tuesday against Dallas, but at this point, as Khan notes, Jakub Kindl (groin) won't be back until Friday. As such, Brian Lashoff will play against the Stars, and the Wings may have to sign someone like Nathan Paetsch to a 2-way contract.
