Wings’ Skate At The Big House

I will update this post as needed.

added 12:18pm, via Khan tweet,

Tomas Jurco isn't practicing. Might have been sent down and replaced by Glendening. No word yet from the team.

Also, Gustavsson was just on the ice for a team picture, not practicing.

added 12:34 PM from George, Khan confirms that Jurco's been sent down:

The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned forward Tomas Jurco to the Grand Rapids Griffins and recalled Luke Glendening.

Jurco had three points (two goals, assist) and an even plus-minus rating in seven games with the Red Wings, his first taste of NHL experience.

Glendening, who was sent down on Sunday, has shuffled back and forth several times this season.

The Red Wings are practicing at Michigan Stadium today in preparation for Wednesday's Winter Classic vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs (1 p.m., NBC).

Right wing Daniel Alfredsson, who sat out Monday's 6-4 loss at Nashville due to back spasms, is skating today.

Alfredsson left the ice early, so status for tomorrow is probably up in the air.

So Jurco misses both: The Comerica Park game and Winter Classic.  Stinks.

Khan tweet,

Alfredsson felt better, team hoping he can play tomorrow, Holland said. He also said Glendening is playing for sure.

Kulfan tweet,

Holland says Franzen is still a ways away from playing.,,Alfie feeling better but likely a game time decision

Jurco had to play last night in GR after playing in Nashville on Monday. That kid is a trooper.
