Injury Update Heading Into Camp

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman said Wednesday that Top 6 forward Andrew Copp had offseason abdominal surgery and won’t return to action until the first week of the season.

He adds to a Detroit injury list that already includes defensemen Jake Walman (shoulder surgery) and Mark Pysyk (Achilles surgery), plus right wing Robby Fabbri (knee surgery).

Michigan native Copp signed a five-year contract with the Red Wings with a $5.625 million annual average value. He is projected to be Detroit’s No. 2 center this season and be a regular on the penalty killing unit.

“I don’t anticipate (Copp) participating in the preseason games but I expect him ready to go in roughly a week, if not sooner, into the regular season,” Yzerman said as he met with media to discuss the start of training camp this week.

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.
