Jonathan Ericsson

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.

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.
