Well, just in case you had ideas of adding the top available defenseman to your line-up next week, Niklas Kronwall (non-pool) injured his shoulder in the game against the Coyotes last night. If you've been paying attention to the news, then you'll know not to pick him next week. I think this is fair warning.
Also in Detroit, they not only lost a defenseman last night, but they didn't have one of their blueliners at all to start the game. Brett Lebda (Box 11) missed the game with a sore wrist. The early indications don't point to any major amount of time missed, but a discomfort in the wrist would be quite hindering to any hockey player. I would imagine they won't rush him back to the line-up right away.
