Detroit?s Eaves Out 2-4 Weeks With MCL And Ankle Sprains

Eaves_2013If it wasn?t for bad luck, Patrick Eaves probably wouldn?t have any.

The oft-injured Detroit forward is back on the shelf, as the Wings announced Thursday that Eaves would miss the next 2-4 weeks with MCL and ankle sprains.

?I think we we need to take a week to see how he feels,? Wings GM Ken Holland told MLive, noting that Eaves was hurt in a net-front collision during Thursday?s practice.

?The doctors feel the ankle is going to heal quicker than the MCL sprain.?

Eaves, 29, missed almost all of the 2011-12 season and part of last season after taking a Roman Josi slapshot to the head during a game against Nashville in ?11.
