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.

Red Wings' Ericsson Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Jonathan Ericsson left Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury and didn't return, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The extent of the Jonathan Ericsson's injury remains unknown, but he'll likely be evaluated carefully within the next day by team. Fortunately, the Red Wings are using defenseman Brendan Smith as a fourth-line forward Tuesday, so he'll likely switch back over to defense for the the remainder of the game. Incredibly, the Red Wings have lost a player due to injury in six consecutive games.

Wings' Ericsson Expected To Play Saturday

News: Jonathan Ericsson sat out Friday's practice for maintenance purposes but is expected to play Saturday against the Lightning, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Since returning from a month-long absence due to a rib injury, Jonathan Ericsson has chipped in just one assist in eight games, but he does have a plus-1 rating over that stretch. It doesn't sound like the 29-year-old is in any real danger of missing Detroit's final game before the break.

Wings' Ericsson Will Return Wednesday

News: Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) will return to the lineup Wednesday against Chicago.
Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock had suggested as much, but Jonathan Ericsson confirmed after Tuesday's morning skate that he will play against the Blackhawks. The 29-year-old has been out more than a month, and figures to be eased back into the rotation while donning a protective jacket to protect his injury. He'll check back into the Wings' lineup with eight points and 24 PIM in 29 games.

Jonathan Ericsson

Wings' Ericsson Set To Return Wednesday

News: Coach Mike Babcock said he expects Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) back in the lineup Wednesday against the Blackhawks, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: With the defenseman starting to increase his activity level in recent practices, it appears he'll finally receive clearance to make his return to the lineup Wednesday for the first time since Dec. 23. Jonathan Ericsson, who received a six-year, $25.5 million extension from the Wings in November, won't do much to aid the team's offensive attack, but his skill as one of the team's top individual defenders and penalty killers should greatly benefit a surging Jimmy Howard in goal.

Red Wings' Ericsson Targeting Return Next Week

News: Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) doesn't expect to return until next week, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson had his sights set on returning Saturday vs. the Kings, but his inability to take part in full-contact work has prompted him to push back that timetable. The defenseman said he feels good skating and will be evaluated on a day-by-day basis before doctors clear him for full practice.

Red Wings' Ericsson Puts In Full Practice

News: Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) was a full participant in practice Tuesday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson was able to resume skating last week, but Tuesday marked his first full practice since breaking his ribs Dec. 23. He's eyeing a return Saturday vs. the Kings, but the Red Wings will check in and see how he progresses through the week before making a determination on his status.

Red Wings' Ericsson Resumes Skating

News: Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) has resumed skating, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson was able to get some work in one the ice after Wednesday's session, but it remains to be seen when he'll receive clearance to rejoin his teammates for practices. He's just past the two-week mark in the three-to-five week recovery timetable he was given after fracturing two ribs in a Jan. 23 game.

Red Wings Move Ericsson To IR

News: Jonathan Ericsson (ribs) was placed on IR on Friday.
Analysis: With Jonathan Ericsson ruled out for three-to-five weeks with a rib injury, his move to injured reserve doesn't come as much of a surprise. The Red Wings will now be able to bring up an extra defenseman to fill in for Ericsson should they choose to do so.

Red Wings' Ericsson To Miss 3-5 Weeks

News: Jonathan Ericsson, who suffered two fractured ribs Monday, will be out three-to-five weeks, Mlive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson, who has eight points and a plus-9 rating in 29 games while playing on the Wings' top blue line pairing, will be sorely missed by the team, given his ability as a shut-down defender and penalty killer. His absence paves the way for Jakub Kindl to re-enter the Wings' lineup.

Red Wings' Ericsson (Upper Body) Will Not Return

News: Jonathan Ericsson left Monday's game with an upper body injury and will not return.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson departed in the second period after a collision with the Islanders' Matt Martin. He appeared to favor his left shoulder, but an exact injury diagnosis is yet to be disclosed. Consider Ericsson questionable for Saturday's contest against the Panthers.

Red Wings Sign Ericsson To Six-Year Extension

News: Jonathan Ericsson inked a six-year extension with the Red Wings on Wednesday.
Analysis: According to Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily, Jonathan Ericsson will earn $25.5 million over the life of the deal, or $4.25 million per season. While Ericsson doesn't offer the fantasy upside of the P.K. Subbans and Erik Karlssons of the world, he is quite solid defensively and is at least competent on the other side of the ice. With Niklas Kronwall also signed to a long-term contract, the Red Wings now have their top defensive pairing intact for several seasons to follow.

Ericsson Returns In Wings' Loss

News: Jonathan Ericsson returned to the lineup for Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to Washington logging 20:20 and finishing a minus-1.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson put two shots on goal after missing nearly a month with a shoulder injury. Look for Ericsson to give Detroit a boost defensively, even if he doesn't contribute too much offensively.

Wings' Ericsson Skates

News: Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) skated with the team Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson can't be activated off long term IR for over a week, but it's certainly a good sign that Ericsson is progressing and should be ready to return when he's eligible.

Wings' Ericsson Likely Headed For Long-Term IR

News: Jonathan Ericsson (shoulder) will likely be placed on long-term IR to make room for Darren Helm (groin), Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Helm is on track to return Saturday, and in order to clear the necessary roster spot, Jonathan Ericsson will likely be moved to long-term IR. If so, Ericsson will be eligible to return Nov. 15 against Washington, as he's already missed three games with the shoulder injury.

Wings' Ericsson Out 2-3 Weeks

News: Jonathan Ericsson will miss two-to-three weeks with a left shoulder injury, Ansar Khan of Mlive.com reports.
Analysis: Jonathan Ericsson missed Monday's game to be with his wife for the birth of their child, but was reportedly also dealing with a shoulder injury. It turns out that he'll miss 2-3 weeks with the injury and will be placed on short-term injured reserve. Kyle Quincey could be the leading candidate to see work on the top defensive line with Ericsson out of action.
