Valtteri Filppula: Out Six-To-Eight Weeks With Knee Injury
Update: Filppula's injury was officially diagnosed as a sprained right knee, which will keep him out six-to-eight weeks, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Recommendation: Filppula sustained the injury while playing for Jokerit in his native Finland, and would be eligible to return with the Red Wings to rehab if the season resumes. If healthy, Filppula is a top-six forward for the Red Wings, as evidenced by his 23 goals and 43 assists last season.
