Detroit's Andersson Nearing Return

Red Wings' Andersson Has Broken Foot

News: Joakim Andersson has a broken left foot and will be out for at least the next couple of weeks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson is a repeat participant in the Red Wings' ongoing parade of injured centers, though his loss is certainly not as devastating as the absences of stars Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg. On the other hand, it does further deplete the team's depth at the position, as the Red Wings continue to dig deeper and deeper into their minor league ranks to call up reinforcements.

Red Wings' Andersson On Track For Tuesday

News: Coach Mike Babcock expects Joakim Andersson (lower body) to return to the lineup Tuesday vs. the Flyers, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: With Joakim Andersson back at practice and not looking overly limited by the lower-body injury, it doesn't look like he'll require further recovery time. With Johan Franzen and Darren Helm already having returned from IR within the past week, the Red Wings are nearly back to full health at the center spot.

Red Wings' Andersson A Possibility For Sunday

News: Joakim Andersson (lower body) could return to the lineup Sunday vs. the Panthers, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson was able to skate the last two days after remaining off the ice for a week, and looks to be close to shaking off the lower-body injury.

Red Wings' Andersson Resumes Skating

News: Joakim Andersson (lower body) skated Friday for the first time in eight days, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson is one of several injured Red Wings forwards, but his on-ice activity indicates he may not be part of that group much longer. It seems unlikely that Andersson will be activated for Friday's game given that he has been sidelined for over a week, but it appears he is on track to return to action in the near future.

News: Joakim Andersson (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Kings, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson did not skate during Friday's practice and will miss his second straight game with the injury. Incredibly, with Pavel Datsyuk, Darren Helm and Stephen Weiss all on injured reserve, the Red Wings will be without their top four centers Saturday.

Red Wings' Andersson Ruled Out Thursday

News: Joakim Andersson (lower body) will not play Thursday vs. the Rangers, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Cory Emmerton was called up from AHL Grand Rapids to take his spot in the lineup.

Wings' Andersson Scores In Loss

News: Joakim Andersson scored a goal -- his first point of the year -- in Thursday's loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: At the time, it was a game-tying tally, but the lead wouldn't last. The 24-year-old Joakim Andersson has some offensive skills, but won't get too many chances to express them in a third-line role with the Wings.

Red Wings Lock Up Andersson For Two Years

News: Joakim Andersson signed a two-year deal worth about $1.5 million with the Red Wings on Tuesday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson excelled with both the Red Wings and the Grand Rapids Griffins last season, earning him the two-year, two-way deal. Andersson should leave the AHL behind for good this season, as he is expected to center the Wings' third or fourth line. His faceoff ability makes him valuable to Detroit, but he still likely has a year or two ahead of him before he holds much fantasy value.

News: Joakim Andersson lit the lamp twice against the Canucks on Sunday. He was also a plus-3.
Analysis: Joakim Andersson scored both goals late in a blowout, but they still count, and now he has three goals on the season. However, when the Wings get healthy, he could see himself losing playing time.

Red Wings Recall Andersson

Analysis: This move appears to be a precaution in case Justin Abdelkader (illness) can't go Friday. Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said it "looks like" Abdelkader will play Friday against the Kings, so Joakim Andersson's time in the NHL may be limited.
