Red Wings lose Thomas Vanek to knee injury

Red Wings lose Thomas Vanek to knee injury The Red Wings will be without winger Thomas Vanek for two-to-three weeks due to a lower-body injury which is believed to be a knee issue, reports Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press. The injury occurred early in the first period on Tuesday night against Columbus. Detroit has filled his spot with Wade Megan, but another recall may be needed depending on the availability of center Andreas Athanasiou for Thursday’s game versus New Jersey. Vanek is off to somewhat of a quiet start this season with five points in a dozen games, well off the pace of his output from last season when he collected 56 points between Vancouver and Columbus.

MONTREAL – Forward Paul Byron will be out of action for a week with a lower body injury , the Montreal Canadiens announced Wednesday. The speedy winger missed the third period of a 4-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday night.

Injured Montreal Canadiens forward Paul Byron will be evaluated on a week-to-week basis, according to head coach Claude Julien.

Byron sat out the Canadiens' last four games with a lower-body injury and did not travel with the team on their latest road trip.

The injury was sustained in a home contest versus the Dallas Stars on Oct. 30. Byron left the game and did not return.

Byron sits eighth in team scoring with seven points in 11 games.

In other injury news, forward Joel Armia underwent an MRI after leaving Tuesday night's game with a lower-body injury. The team is currently waiting on the results, Julien said Wednesday.
