|An MRI on the shoulder of Detroit Red Wings centre Pavel Datsyuk has revealed a second-degree separation and the 36-year-old will be sidelined for four to five weeks.
Datsyuk was taken hard into the boards by Penguins defencemanRob Scuderi during the Red Wings' 2-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Monday.
"It's going to be around four weeks, give or take, depending on the healing process,'' Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Wednesday.
Holland is optimistic based on the timing of the injury. "The good news is, two weeks of the healing process is going to be during pre-season," he added. "So half his time will be during training camp. That's at least good."
This is the third major injury for Datsyuk in the the last year. He missed seven games last season with a concussion and 30 more with a right knee injury.
Datsyuk is heading into his 13th NHL season.
