Husso has a 9-5-2 record, 3.55 GAA and .892 save percentage in 19 appearances in 2023-24. James Reimer is projected to primarily back up Alex Lyon during Husso's absence.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Hurt in Tuesday's game

    Husso was hurt when the Oilers scored their first goal in Tuesday's game, Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton reports.

    Per the team, Husso sustained a lower-body injury. Husso was replaced by Alex Lyon immediately following Leon Draisaitl's tally. This was Husso's first game since Dec. 18, but he lasted just 8:48, stopping six of seven shots. If Husso has aggravated a previous lower-body injury, Lyon and James Reimer will likely take over as the goaltending duo for the Red Wings.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Available for Saturday

    Husso (illness) is set to be available for Saturday's home game versus Vancouver, per Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press on Thursday.

    Husso has a 9-5-2 record, 3.53 GAA and .893 save percentage in 18 contests this season. Alex Lyon is expected to start Saturday and is likely to be leaned on heavily down the stretch, which will probably leave Husso without many opportunities to get in work.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Perfect in Grand Rapids

    Husso (lower body) stopped all 25 shots in a 3-0 win over AHL Belleville on Friday.

Husso was 9-5-2 with a 3.53 GAA and an .893 save percentage in 18 appearances with the Red Wings before his injury. He could return to Detroit as early as Wednesday versus Ottawa, but it is more likely he will come back after the All-Star break and for now may get in extra playing time with the Griffins. Upon his return to the Red Wings, Husso will back up Alex Lyon.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Finishes AHL conditioning stint

    Husso (lower body) completed his conditioning stint with AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday.

    Husso earned a 25-save shutout Friday in his lone start during the conditioning stint. He hadn't played with the Red Wings since Dec. 18 because of the lower-body injury, so his time in the AHL helped shake off the rust. Alex Lyon is expected to start in Saturday's home game versus Vegas, but Husso is an option to dress as the backup netminder.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Tough loss to Carolina

    Husso stopped 37 shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Hurricanes.

    The 28-year-old netminder made only one real mistake on the night, but it proved costly -- Husso came out of his crease to try and handle a dump-in attempt in the second period, only to whiff on the puck completely. It bounced off the end boards and slid right in front of the net, gifting the game-winning goal to Jordan Staal. It's just the second time in his last 12 starts that Husso has allowed fewer than three goals, and over that stretch he's stumbled to a 3.75 GAA and .888 save percentage despite a 6-4-2 record. With Alex Lyon's hot streak having faded and James Reimer still trying to find his form, however, Husso figures to remain Detroit's No. 1 goalie by default, at least for now.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Facing Hurricanes

    Husso will patrol the home crease versus Carolina on Thursday, Red Wings' host Carley Johnston reports.

    Husso was a little shaky in his last start Tuesday against St. Louis, surrendering four goals on 37 shots, but he still came away with a victory thanks to fantastic offensive support from his teammates. The 28-year-old netminder will attempt to pick up his 10th win of the season in a home matchup with a Hurricanes squad that's averaging 3.00 goals per game on the road this year, 18th in the NHL.

  • Red Wings' Ville Husso: Nabs win against former club

    Husso stopped 33 shots in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Blues.

    Facing the club that selected him in the fourth round of the 2014 NHL Draft, Husso had a bit of a shaky second period but bounced back in the third as Detroit scored three unanswered goals to put the game away. The 28-year-old netminder has just one regulation loss in his last six starts, going 4-1-1 over that stretch, but his 3.84 GAA and .881 save percentage during that time aren't making a strong case for more playing time.

    Husso made 30 saves in a 6-5 overtime loss to San Jose on Thursday.

In under six minutes, the Wings collapsed and the Sharks poured in four goals to knot things up. The Sharks tied it with an extra attacker on the ice, and then finished the game 37 seconds into overtime. The Wings have been strong lately, but that's largely on the back of a 4-1-0 run by backup Alex Lyon. Husso is 5-3-2 in his last 10 starts.
