After Practice Notes

from Dana Wakiji of the Wings website,

The Red Wings just can't seem to get a player back from injury without losing another one.

That sad, season-long trend continued Sunday as Andreas Athanasiou practiced fully while Filip Zadina did not skate.

Wings coach Jeff Blashill said Zadina suffered a lower-body injury Friday in New York, played through it Saturday but will now miss two to three weeks.

"It's unfortunate," Blashill said. "It's unfortunate for him, unfortunate for us. It's kind of the way the year's gone a bit and that's life sometimes but it is unfortunate. I thought he was gaining confidence, I thought hew was really starting to play well. He was making plays at the right times, he was living another day at the right times, getting real good opportunities with Larks and on that power-play unit. It's unfortunate but there's not a thing we can do about it except try to get him back ready to roll and hopefully get him going at a high level when he gets back."

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
