  • Ericsson (undisclosed) has been cleared and will be ready for Wednesday's matchup with the Oilers, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. The 33-year-old blueliner has one goal and three assists through 21 games, and he only gets summoned at even strength. It's likely too late in his career for him to start lighting up the scoresheet, but he plays sound defense with a plus-4 rating this season.

  • Ericsson will be a game-time decision for Wednesday night's game against the Oilers due to an undisclosed injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Ericsson apparently tweaked something while picking up his child recently. The hardworking father has mostly been earning his keep as a stay-at-home defenseman for Detroit, so his absence is unlikely to affect most fantasy owners. If he doesn't go Wednesday, Xavier Oullett will likely draw into the lineup.

  • Red Wings' Jonathan Ericsson: Key distributor in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ericsson registered a primary assist en route to a 3-2 shootout win over the Panthers on Saturday. The Wings appreciate the Swede's industrious style of play from the back end, but his offensive exploits are few and far between. In fact, this was just his third point in 12 games. It's safe to pass over Ericsson in all but the deepest league formats.

  • Ericsson has gone plus-3 with an assist counting as his only point through the first five games. Look elsewhere for offensive production, as Ericsson is mostly focused on overpowering opponents in the defensive zone and helping the Wings limit mistakes. He's doled out seven hits and four blocked shots this season, but the Swede's never eclipsed 15 points in a single season despite this being his 11th NHL campaign.

  • Ericsson (wrist) is healthy entering training camp, as implied by Ansar Khan of MLive.com on Thursday. Khan relayed from Wings coach Jeff Blashill that Tomas Tatar (shoulder), Luke Glendening (ankle), and "everyone else should be good to go," which seems to include the own-zone patrolman in Ericsson. Still, we're talking about a guy who hasn't topped 15 points in a single season since entering the league a decade ago, so consider this a moot point as it pertains to fantasy hockey.
