DETROIT >> Justin Abdelkader could miss some time due to a hand injury he suffered late in Saturday’s 3-2 shootout win against Minnesota Wild.
Abdelkader blocked a shot from Marco Scandella 1:06 into overtime and didn’t return to the game.
He also didn’t take part in the eight-shootout.
There has been no update from the team on how significant the hand injury is.
With four games left in the regular season this could put Abdelkader in jeopardy in being ready for the playoffs.
Abdelkader has a career-high 23 goals and 44 points this season.
