Erne (COVID-19 protocols) won't travel with the Red Wings for their upcoming four-game road trip, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Detroit has yet to make an official announcement, but it seems as though Erne is in danger of missing the entirety of his team's four-game road trip, which will start with a Friday night clash with Chicago. Mathias Brome will probably continue to occupy a spot in the Wings' bottom six until Erne is cleared to return.
Erne (COVID-19 protocol) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game versus the Blue Jackets, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Erne will miss a second straight game, as he remains in the NHL's COVID-19 protocol. The 25-year-old played the first two games of the season and totaled six hits and a shot on net. His next chance to play will be Friday against the Blackhawks.
Erne (COVID-19 protocol) is out of the lineup Monday against the Blue Jackets.
It's unclear what triggered Erne to be placed in the protocol, where he'll be joined by Robby Fabbri. Frans Nielsen will slide into the fourth-line wing spot vacated by Erne.
Erne inked a one-year contract with Detroit on Thursday.
Erne saw action in 56 games with the Red Wings this past season, in which he registered just two goals and three helpers while averaging 11:49 of ice time. The winger is unlikely to push for anything above a bottom-six role this year and will almost certainly top out near the 20-point mark, making him a mid-range fantasy option at best.
Head coach Jeff Blashill said Erne will miss "significant time" with a broken hand.
It appears Erne sustained this injury during Saturday's loss to the Senators, and the 24-year-old forward met with a specialist Sunday. There's no specific timeline for Erne's return, but he could be shut down for the season depending on how his recovery progresses. Dymytro Timashov should see a boost in playing time in Erne's stead.
Erne (undisclosed) missed Sunday's practice and is expected to be out for a "bit," Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
It's unclear how the 24-year-old suffered the injury, but coach Jeff Blashill said Sunday that Erne doesn't have a timetable for a return as he's set see a specialist for his injury. His absence likely won't affect things too much from a fantasy perspective, as he's produced just five points in 56 games this season. In Erne's stead, look for Justin Abdelkader or Christoffer Ehn to draw into the lineup on the team's fourth line.
Erne (undisclosed) will return to action Thursday versus the Wild, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Erne will miss just one contest because of the undisclosed issue and will presumably slot into his usual bottom-six role for the club. Considering he owns just four points through 54 games with Detroit, Erne's return shouldn't have much of an impact on fantasy circles.
Erne will miss Tuesday's matchup with New Jersey due to an undisclosed injury, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
With Erne dealing with an injury and Dmytro Timashov unavailable due to visa issues, the club will be forced to dress seven blueliners. The winger remains bogged down in a 26-game goal drought during which he secured a mere two helpers and 24 shots. Given his limited offensive upside, the Connecticut native wont offer much in terms of fantasy value down the stretch.
Erne recorded a primary assist Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Bruins.
Erne dumped the puck off to Brendan Perlini, who wrapped around a pair of Bruins defenders for his first goal as a Red Wing. As a bottom-six winger averaging only 11:58 of ice time, Erne isn't a viable fantasy option unless you really need hits; he's accumulated 124 of those through 48 games this season.
Erne has recorded at least two hits in 19 consecutive games.
The American winger is on pace to sail past his previous career high in hits; he committed 159 of those with the Lightning last season but needs just 44 more to eclipse that mark in his first tour with the Wings. Erne is known for his rugged play, but limited ice time (11:54) and representing a league-worst offense has completely sapped his chances of retaining fantasy value following a respectable 20-point campaign with the Bolts.
Erne is dealing with an undisclosed issue and won't suit up in Sunday's matchup versus Arizona, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Coach Jeff Blashill speculated that it was an illness that Erne was dealing with, but didn't provide specifics. With Erne sidelined, Justin Abdelkader and Frans Nielsen (illness) will draw into the lineup on the fourth line. The good news for Erne is that the Red Wings head into the holiday break and won't play again until Saturday against Florida.
Erne scored his first two goals of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Both tallies came in the first period, but Detroit wasn't able to capitalize on Erne's rare offensive outburst. The 24-year-old only had 13 goals in 114 games over the last three seasons for the Lightning, so it's highly unlikely he's about to become a fantasy asset for the Wings.
Erne (hand) is back in the lineup Friday against Philadelphia, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Erne (hand) will not play in Saturday's game against the Devils, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.

Erne appeared to be in pain as he went to the bench, and it's unsettled who will fill his third-line role if he's unable to go. The 24-year-old is still searching for his first point after 19 games.
Eighteen games into his tenure with the Red Wings, Erne is still searching for his first point with the Eastern Conference club.
Erne left the Tampa Bay organization in a mid-August trade that reunited the grinder with GM Steve Yzerman, but we're still waiting for him to show signs of life in the attacking zone. He managed seven goals and 13 assists over 65 games with the Bolts last season, though replicating that success on a bottom-dwelling Wings team obviously presents a much tougher challenge. Steer clear of Erne.
The Red Wings activated Erne (undisclosed) off injured reserve Tuesday.
Erne is technically still considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Edmonton, but his activation off the injured list all but confirms he'll be in the lineup against the Oilers. The 23-year-old American, who's gone scoreless in seven games this campaign, is expected to skate with Taro Hirose and Frans Nielsen on Detroit's third line.
