DETROIT – It looks like Mikael Samuelsson may need surgery to repair in injured pectoral muscle.
He suffered the injury on March 31 and missed the final 13 games of the regular season. Returning for Game 7 against Anaheim, he reinjured it again and didn’t play against Chicago.
“He just never healed, but he feels better every day,” Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “There’s a chance he may need surgery.”
Samuelsson also suffered a pulled groin and broken finger this season, which limited him to nine games, four in the regular season and five in the playoffs.
