Wings Notes Today

01/09/2020 at 3:59pm EST

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

Based on the way this season has been going with injuries, it would not have been a surprise for the Red Wings to lose another player.

Center Frans Nielsen looked like his old self in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Montreal Canadiens, scoring two goals, one on a breakaway in the third period that tied the game, 3-3.

Nielsen was fine the whole game but did not practice Thursday.

"Frans woke up this morning sick, so I don't know his availability for tomorrow," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "Obviously he's out today. I think he's had some sickness in his family. We're hoping it's just a quick thing and he'll be ready tomorrow."

Defenseman Trevor Daley was able to practice for the second time since injuring himself blocking a shot last Sunday in Chicago.

"I haven't talked to Trevor since the skate was over," Blashill said. "I think he was gonna skate and see how it feels, so we'll see."

Defenseman Jonathan Ericsson, who is recovering from a surgically repaired nose, is also practicing and getting used to wearing a full cage.

continued with more topics including Rasmussen recovering from an injury (still not disclosed) and close to playing...

added 5:35pm, below, watch Blashill on Seider's play at the WJC...

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.
