Ericsson Fighting The Flu

from Vicki Hall of Flames Insider,

Defenceman Jonathan Ericsson missed the morning skate Saturday with flu-like symptoms. His status is questionable for tonight’s clash with the Calgary Flames.

“We hope it’s nothing major,” said Detroit head coach Mike Babcock. “But what we’re concerned about is that’s what happened in Edmonton. It was nothing major in the morning and suddenly, by night, it was.”

As a rookie, Ericsson dazzled last year in the playoffs, but he’ struggled in his first full year, of NHL employment on a pairing with Brett Lebda.

“Lebs and him have been on the ice for some of the ugliest goals in hockey,” Babcock said.
