Drew Miller was injured during the first period of the Vancouver game on Saturday.
Once the game was over Mike Babcock shared that Miller had broken his hand and will be out of the line-up for the foreseeable future.

The Wings will have to use one of them to fill in for Miller because they cannot call anyone up from Grand Rapids for the rest of the season, unless it is an emergency call-up.
Drew Miller has played predominately on the fourth line, but saw action on Zetterberg’s wing, as well this season. He is one of the best penalty killing forwards the Red Wings have and has logged 102:16 minutes of short-handed time on ice, which is 30 minutes more than the next forward, Cory Emmerton.
The Red Wings will miss Drew Miller, but the next man up mantra continues. Detroit must continue to focus on winning games and making the playoffs.
