Franzen won’t play for Sweden at Olympics

DETROIT — Still suffering from concussion-like symptoms, Johan Franzen has withdrawn from Team Sweden for this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

His symptoms reappeared after returning Sunday.

The Wings placed him on short-term injured reserve Tuesday.

The earliest he could return to the lineup but that appears highly unlikely according to Wings general manager Ken Holland.

Franzen was one of six Wings chosen to appear for Team Sweden.
