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

Eaves_2013 [1]If 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.
