DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Red Wings star Pavel Datsyuk is expected to miss two weeks after having arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to remove fragments from his right knee.
Datsyuk is Detroit’s leading scorer with 59 points. Detroit has won a record 23 consecutive home games. The Red Wings play on the road Tuesday night at Chicago.
Datsyuk helped Detroit keep its streak going when he scored with 5 seconds left Friday to beat Nashville — win No. 22 in a row at home. The forward was ninth in the NHL in scoring through Monday.
Detroit also confirms Tuesday that goalie Ty Conklin has cleared waivers and been assigned to the team’s Grand Rapids affiliate.
