The Detroit Red Wings are set to embark on a four-game road swing through Western Canada that begins Wednesday in Vancouver.
They will be without one of their regulars for that game, but will get someone back from injury.
Johan Franzen has been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against the Canucks due to an undisclosed injury, per MLive's Ansar Khan. However, he is expected to return to action on Friday when the Wings travel to Calgary.
Khan also reports that Patrick Eaves will make his season debut on Wednesday. Eaves had been out with a knee injury since September.
Darren Helm won't return Wednesday, but could make his season debut during the road trip. Helm has resumed skating with the team after missing time with a groin injury.
Also, Drew Miller left practice early due to illness. There is no word on his availability.
GLENDENING RECALLED: With Franzen out, the Red Wings recalled Luke Glendening from Grand Rapids to play on Wednesday.
