Anthony Mantha, who is second on the team with 12 goals this season, suffered a lower body injury during last Sunday’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes. The Red Wings announced last Tuesday that the injury will keep him out of the lineup for a couple of weeks.
Though, head coach Jeff Blashill said on Friday that he’s now expected to miss at least four weeks.
Mantha had played in just four games since returning from missing eight games with a knee injury.
