  • Red Wings' Johan Franzen: Intensive treatment for post-concussion syndrome

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/28/18) Franzen (concussion) has entered an "intensive treatment program" in Denver, MLive.com reports.

    Franzen ranks 22nd all-time among Red Wings in points with 370 (187 goals, 183 assists) over 602 career games. He hasn't appeared in a game since October of 2015, as post-concussion syndrome has taken a serious toll on him. "The last months have been really bad," Franzen's wife Cissi wrote in her blog entitled "Franzen Residence," but the family remains "very hopeful for the future" as the winger seeks treatment at the Marcus Brain Health Institute. Franzen is technically still under contract with Detroit at a cap hit of $3.954 million -- a figure assuaged by his long-term injured reserve designation.

    Red Wings' Johan Franzen: Exempt from Vegas expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/17) Franzen (concussion) is exempt from the expansion draft, per an agreement with the NHLPA, Craig Custance of ESPN reports.

    On Tuesday, the NHL released a list of 12 players -- including Franzen -- who will not be exposed in the Las Vegas expansion draft. The commonality between said players is that they're all dealing with long-term injuries, and in several cases, unlikely to play again despite possessing active contracts. For example, Franzen -- also known as "The Mule" -- remains on the books for Detroit through the 2019-20 season, but he hasn't played since October of 2015.

    Red Wings' Johan Franzen: Lands on long-term injured reserve

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/12/16) Franzen (concussion) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    This move was expected, as Franzen has missed the majority of the past two seasons due to concussion-like symptoms, and reportedly will remain on long-term injured reserve for the four years remaining on his 11-year contract with the Red Wings. It's undoubtedly tragic for such a fantastic career to be derailed by injury, but one can look back on Franzen's tremendous accomplishments fondly, particularly his performance in the 2008 playoffs, in which he scored 13 goals in 16 playoff games to help Detroit secure its 11th Stanley Cup.

    Red Wings' Johan Franzen: Unable to shake off concussion symptoms

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/16/16) Franzen (concussion) is likely to remain on long-term injured reserve for the four years that remain on his contract with the Red Wings, MLive.com reports.

    Franzen, who missed the majority of the 2014-15 campaign and only lasted two games this season, explained that his concussion symptoms resurface whenever he attempts to exert himself. Khan suggested that Franzen's situation mirrors that of Marc Savard and Chris Pronger, former stars still possessing NHL contracts without much of a chance to ever play again due to the their respective concussions. As sad as it is to see a career derailed by injury, one can marvel at Franzen's past accomplishments with Detroit. The "Mule" collected 370 points (187 goals, 183 assists) in 602 career games, adding power points in nearly 20 percent of his appearances. In 2008, Franzen scored 13 goals in 16 playoff games and helped Detroit earn its 11th Stanley Cup.

    Red Wings' Johan Franzen: Placed on long term IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/20/15) Franzen (concussion) was placed on long-term injury reserve Thursday, Fox Sports reports.

    Franzen, who's been out since early October with a concussion, remains out indefinitely per genermal manager Ken Holland. Concussion symptoms forced him to miss much of the 2014-15 season as well, so at this point it's unclear if he'll be able to return at all this year.
