Eaves expected back by training camp; Cleary needs surgery on left knee

DETROIT — Wings GM Ken Holland said that Danny Cleary needs surgery on his left knee and that will probably take place next week.

Joey MacDonald was sidelined after suffering back spasms and continued to receive shots during rehab in order to try and fix the problem.

“We’ll assess where he is in the next couple of weeks,” Holland said. “We’re hoping rehab, injections and time off will be the answer.’ Otherwise it’s back surgery again.”

MacDonald had back surgery in 2006.

Patrick Eaves should be ready come training camp according to Holland.

“He feels pretty good,” Holland said. “He’s doing skating drills and starting to work out in the gym. We think he’ll be ready to roll in September at 100-percent.”

Eaves broke his jaw on Nov. 26 when he was hit by a shot from Nashville defenseman Roman Josi. It was post-concussion symptoms that sidelined him the remainder of the season. His jaw healed in February.
