Red Wings lose veteran defenseman for 3-5 weeks; Filip Hronek re-called

With defenseman Danny DeKeyser already on the shelf for several weeks, the last thing the Detroit Red Wings needed were additional players going down to injury. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Head coach Jeff Blashill announced today that Mike Green will be out for at least three to five weeks with a lower body injury.

Filip Hronek will be called up from the Grand Rapids Griffins to help offset the loss. Green has scored three goals to go with 13 assists this season in 23 games. Hronek, Detroit’s second round pick in 2016, has had himself a good year with Grand Rapids, netting five goals and 18 assists.

The Red Wings take on the Ottawa Senators at Little Caesars Arena Friday night.

The Michigan native and Red Wings forward shared the news of his book titled “Shoot For The Goal: The Justin Abdelkader Story” from his Instagram account.

The story follows a young hockey player from Michigan who grows up dreaming of playing for the Red Wings and goes over the steps he took to make that dream a reality.

Here’s what Abdelkader had to say on Instagram about the book:

“Excited to finally share the project I have been working on, a children’s book about a boy from the west side of Michigan who had dreams of playing for the Detroit Red Wings. It has been so much fun reflecting on my childhood and all the obstacles that brought me to where I am today. This book is so special to me not only because it goes through my journey as a hockey player/student, but because I get to further my passion for children and reading through Abby’s All Stars by giving them one more book to read! 📚Follow along for details on how to get your copy and signings I’ll be doing for “Shoot For The Goal” as well. Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!”
