Jan Mursak did indeed get the call from the Red Wings and will replace injured forward Patrick Eaves when Detroit takes on Dallas on Thursday.
Eaves suffered a lower-body injury on Tuesday against the Sharks. The team is awaiting the results of an MRI which was supposed to take place today. While it’s unclear exactly what type of injury Eaves sustained, Red Wings GM Ken Holland shed some light on the timetable for Eaves’ return:
Meanwhile, the Wings are waiting for results from MRI exam on forward Patrick Eaves. General manager Ken Holland said today that Eaves could be out for a week.
If Holland is right, the injury sounds like it’s in the area of a bruise or a sprained knee. Valtteri Filppula recently missed a chunk of time due to a sprained MCL, which occurred on a knee-to-knee hit.
