DETROIT -- The banged-up Detroit Red Wings have taken another hit.
"There's a chance he could have surgery [Wednesday], which would speed up the [healing] process," general manager Ken Holland told mlive.com after Tuesday's game.
Ericsson, who played for 13-plus minutes over the first two periods against Toronto, has a goal and 10 assists with a plus-2 rating in 48 games this season.
"It's tough; he's one of our top D-men," goaltender Jimmy Howard told mlive.com. "You kind of shake your head; hopefully we don't lose another guy because now it's just getting to be mind-boggling."
"We get somebody hurt every day, and they never come back," coach Mike Babcock said.
