DETROIT - Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson could miss 3-5 weeks with broken ribs, according to several published reports.

Ericsson left Monday night's game against the New York Islanders but at the time it wasn't clear what kind of injury he suffered.

The big defenseman joins a list of Red Wings already out of the lineup with injuries, including captain Henrik Zetterberg, forward Darren Helm and forward Justin Abdelkader.

Injuries have plagued Detroit all season long.
