The Detroit Red Wings are experiencing more than their fair share of injuries this season.

The latest victim is Justin Abdelkader, who will miss two-to-four weeks with a slight MCL sprain, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reported Friday.

He joins the following players who have already been placed on injured reserve:

G Jimmy Howard - Groin
D Brendan Smith - Knee
D Alexey Marchenko - Upper body
F Darren Helm - Shoulder
F Andreas Athanasiou - Knee
F Tyler Bertuzzi - Foot

Heading into the month of December - prior to the injury Abdelkader suffered Thursday - Detroit had already experienced the most man games lost due to injury in 2016-17 so far.

Abdelkader, who's in the first season of a seven-year, $29.75-million contract, has recorded four goals and four assists in 22 games.
