Cleary Out With Broken Ankle

Monday, December 27th, 2010

The news was not good for Dan Cleary and the Red Wings. He was hit in the ankle by a Brad Stuart shot in last night’s game against the Wild. He didn’t leave the game at the time although he didn’t play much after that. The fact that he stayed on the bench gave a little hope that he might be alright. Unfortunately, it was just that his skate was tight enough to hold his ankle in place and prevent the swelling. Once he took the skate off after the game he knew something was wrong.

It’s a fracture of the ankle bone and it’ll probably take at least a month for him to return. So the Red Wings lose another forward with Datsyuk and Modano already out long term. They’ve been pretty lucky injury-wise so far this season but it seems like it’s starting to catch up with them. Let’s hope the rest of the team can stay healthy!
