Wings Ericsson: Four Assists In Last Three Games

News: Jonathan Ericsson delivered two more assists in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Lightning. He now has four assists in six postseason games; those four points have come in the last three games.
Analysis: It's sweet production for a guy who had 15 points all season had two points in his previous 22 games. There was always plenty of potential in him, but he has settled into the role of sturdy, low-maintenance crease clearer. Nice output, though.

Wings' Ericsson Dishes Two In Game 3 Win

News: Jonathan Ericsson picked up a pair of assists and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's Game 3 victory over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The second one came on an empty net, but you won't hear the few Jonathan Ericsson owners complaining. Indeed, there must be precious few, considering the blueliner had been iffy for the game with a lower-body injury and last picked up a point March 26; in fact, he didn't have a single multi-point game all season long.

Wings' Ericsson Looks Good To Go For Game 3

News: Jonathan Ericsson (lower body) is on the ice for pregame warmups and appears poised to play in Tuesday's Game 3 match against the Lightning.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson isn't being listed among the Red Wings' scratches for the night after sustaining a minor lower-body injury in Game 2, so he should be ready to play his usual allotment of minutes on the top defensive pairing. The blueliner failed to record a point in the first two games of the series, but did supply a total of six hits.

Red Wings' Ericsson A Bit Nicked Up

News: Although he is dealing with a lower-body injury, Jonathan Ericsson is expected to play in Tuesday's Game 3 against the Lightning, the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson missed Monday's practice, but he also missed Friday's practice ahead of Game 2, and he ended up getting 17:22 of ice time. In the unlikely event Ericsson is unable to play, either Jakub Kindl or Alexei Marchenko will replace him in the lineup.

Red Wings' Ericsson Fine For Friday

News: Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) said he is ready to play in Friday's game against the Flames, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson missed Thursday's practice as a precaution, but there's no indication that his shoulder injury is anything serious. It may just have been the case that he was experiencing some soreness in that region. In any case, he should be fine for Friday's game.

Wings' Ericsson Misses Practice Thursday

News: Jonathan Ericsson is banged up and did not practice Thursday, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson isn't dealing with a specific injury, but was experiencing enough residual pain from Wednesday's game that the team elected to keep him out of practice. GM Ken Holland stated the Wings will see how Ericsson is feeling Friday before making a decision on his status for that evening's game versus the Flames.

Jonathan Ericsson

Red Wings' Ericsson Records Assist In Win

News: Jonathan Ericsson recorded an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime victory over the Rangers.
Analysis: After closing January on a four-game point streak, Ericssom predictably fell back to earth in February, failing to log a single goal or assist while attempting only eight shots over 11 games. As a stay-at-home defenseman who rarely sees power-play time, Jonathan Ericsson can't be trusted as a consistent source for points, severely limiting his ceiling as a fantasy option.

Inexplicable Hot Spell Goes On For Wings' Ericsson

News: Jonathan Ericsson netted his third goal of the season and gathered two PIM in Saturday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: The goal helped Jonathan Ericsson push his point streak to four games, a surprise development for a player who had accumulated only nine in his first 46 games. It's that larger sample of production that fantasy owners should put more stock in; Ericsson shouldn't be mistaken for a consistent offensive threat for the Wings.

Red Wings' Ericsson Picks Up Assist On Tuesday

News: Jonathan Ericsson tallied an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Florida.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson has one point in each of his last two games, but it's the blocked shots and gritty play that earns Ericsson the 20:10 average ice time per game.

Wings' Ericsson Gets First Goal Of Season

News: Jonathan Ericsson scored the Red Wings' only goal in a 3-1 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night. It was his first point in 14 games and first goal of the season.
Analysis: We've said it before -- he's not in the lineup for his offensive chops. And his hits are off his typical average, so he's one of those rare guys whose value is almost zero in all formats.

Wings' Ericsson Gets Assist In Win

News: Jonathan Ericsson tallied his fourth assist of the season Thursday in a 4-3 victory over the Jets.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson is not in the lineup for his offensive skills, although he has chipped in two assists in his last two games. After scoring 11 points in 48 contests in 2013-14, he has four in 19 games this season.

Red Wings' Ericcson Gets First Point

News: Jonathan Ericsson was credited with a secondary assist on Henrik Zetterberg's overtime game-winner Saturday versus the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson was limited in the preseason while first recovering from offseason finger surgery and later nursing a groin and hip flexor injury, but has suited up for all five of the Red Wings' regular-season tilts. As more of a stay-at-home defenseman, he probably won't be able to crack 20 points over an 82-game schedule.

Red Wings' Ericsson Scheduled To Return Saturday

News: Jonathan Ericsson (hip) is scheduled to play in Saturday's preseason game, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock didn't know whether or not he'd actually follow through with the plan and use Jonathan Ericsson in Saturday's game, but the fact that he's at least received clearance to play suggests that the hip flexor injury isn't much of a concern any longer. He should be near 100 percent healthy when the Red Wings opener their season Oct. 9 against the Bruins.

Wings' Ericsson Iffy For Preseason Finale

News: Jonathan Ericsson (hip flexor) isn't certain if he'll play in the Red Wings' remaining two preseason games, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Though Jonathan Ericsson returned to practice Wednesday, he may not be operating at full speed when the Red Wings conclude their exhibition schedule Saturday. He does, however, feel that he will be 100 percent healthy for the Oct. 9 opener against the Bruins, especially after he gets in a few more hard skates. The blueliner is also returning from a broken finger that prevented him from playing in the final 14 regular-season contests and the playoffs, but that particular injury isn't expected to hinder him any further.

Wings' Ericsson Sits Again Tuesday

News: Jonathan Ericsson (groin/hip flexor) was held out of practice for the second straight day Tuesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: He's considered day-to-day, and the Wings continue to suggest that the injury is not serious.

Red Wings' Ericsson Nursing Groin Injury

News: Jonathan Ericsson was held out of Monday's morning skate due to a groin/hip flexor issue, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings are calling Jonathan Ericsson day-to-day with the injury, but the assumption is that it's not something that will keep him out of any regular season action. Ericsson also headed into camp at less than 100 percent following March finger surgery, but he seemed to have rounded back to full health prior to Monday's setback.

Wings' Ericsson Expects To Be Ready For Opener

News: Though Jonathan Ericsson acknowledged Wednesday that he's not 100 percent recovered from Mar. 19 surgery on his finger, he expects to be ready for the Red Wings' regular-season opener, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The Red Wings will more than likely proceed slowly with Jonathan Ericsson during training camp, but for the time being, there seems to be little doubt that he'll be on the ice for Game 1. After he was limited to 48 games during an injury-plagued 2013-14 season, Ericsson will look for better health during the upcoming campaign. Ericsson join Niklas Kronwall on the team's top pairing, but his historically meager offensive productive makes him the far less viable fantasy option of the two players.

Wings' Ericsson Still Healing

News: Jonathan Ericsson has stated his surgically repaired hand is still healing, but he expects to be ready for the upcoming season, Ansar Khan of MLive reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson is one of the top defensemen in Detroit, and they need him healthy for the regular season. He was injured in March but the injury appears to have been more severe than originally thought. He had 11 points in 48 games in 2013-14.

Wings' Ericsson To Skate Thursday

News: Jonathan Ericsson (finger) will resume skating on his own Thursday for the first time since undergoing surgery on his finger Mar. 19, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson is not yet permitted to do any stick-handling due to the splint on his left hand, and it appears safe to rule him out for the Red Wings' first-round series against the Bruins. He's already had one of the pins in his fractured finger removed and will have the remaining three taken out in the next 10-to-14 days.

Wings' Ericsson Not Close To Return

News: Jonathan Ericsson (finger) is not expected to return during the team's first round series with the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson has been out since March 18 with a broken finger, and still needs to have three pins removed sometime next week. He'll likely have to wait for the second round to reunite with Niklas Kronwall as part of the Wings' top blue line pairing.

Red Wings' Ericsson Doubtful For Start Of Playoffs

News: GM Ken Holland said that Jonathan Ericsson (finger) likely wouldn't be ready for the start of their first playoff series, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Although Jonathan Ericsson was initially given a four-to-six week recovery timetable after undergoing surgery on a fractured finger Mar. 19, Holland suggested that the far end of that timetable was a more accurate projection for the defenseman. It wouldn't be a surprise if Ericsson missed the entirety of the Wings' first-round series.

Red Wings Rule Ericsson Out 4-6 Weeks

News: Jonathan Ericsson (finger) has been ruled out for four-to-six weeks.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson underwent surgery on the injured digit and will almost certainly miss the rest of the regular season, and quite possibly, the first round of the playoffs, should Detroit qualify. Jacob Kindl figures to assume a regular place in the lineup with Ericsson presumably out for the long haul.

Wings' Ericsson Needs Surgery, Without Timetable

News: Jonathan Ericsson will undergo surgery on his finger Wednesday and is without a timetable for a return.
Analysis: The broken finger Jonathan Ericsson suffered Tuesday night will need to be operated on, and while initial reports suggested he'd miss at least two weeks, the team is unwilling to set a firm timetable. Nothing's official, but it seems the injury could end up costing Ericsson the rest of the regular season, and it's no lock that the team will even make the postseason.

Red Wings' Ericsson (Finger) Out Two Weeks

News: Jonathan Ericsson (finger) will miss at least two weeks, and may require surgery, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson may require a procedure that requires inserting a screw into the tip of his finger in order to keep the bones in line, and his return date would depend on when he can handle the pain. The Red Wings are preparing to be without him for a minimum of ten days, but the team stated they will not recall another defenseman, as they already have six healthy bodies.

Wings' Ericsson Has Broken Finger

News: Jonathan Ericsson broke his finger in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson left Tuesday's game with an undisclosed injury, which was later found to be a broken finger. He'll see a hand specialist shortly, who will determine how much time he'll have to miss. Kyle Quincy and Danny DeKeyser are potential candidates to replace him on the Red Wings' first line.
