DETROIT — Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard has been ruled out for at least a week after injuring his left knee again.

Howard was hurt Monday night during the second period against the St. Louis Blues.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock says Jonas Gustavsson will start in Howard’s place Wednesday night against Chicago.

Howard sprained a ligament in his left knee two months ago and missed eight games. He returned in time to be named to the U.S. team for the Winter Olympics. Howard insists he is not concerned about missing the Sochi Games.

Tampa Bay’s Ben Bishop, who ranks among the NHL’s best goalies this season, would likely replace Howard if he isn’t healthy enough when the Americans have to set their final roster on Feb. 11.
