Detroit assigned Mursak to AHL Grand Rapids. He's been limited to just two games with Detroit due to a collarbone injury. This demotion will allow him to shake off the rust.

Jan Mursak will suit up Thursday night for the first since suffering a collarbone injury back on Jan. 19.

He will replace Patrick Eaves in the lineup. This is just an FYI as neither player has any fantasy value.

The Red Wings have activated Jan Mursak (collarbone) off injured reserve, but he won't play Tuesday night.

Mursak is only a fourth liner when healthy, so the fact that he's been scratched isn't too much of a surprise. Given his limited role, he has almost no fantasy value.

Jan Murzak (collarbone) has been cleared to play.

Murzak was injured during his first shift in the first game of the regular season. He finished the period but then was taken out of the game when the results of the x-ray returned. The grinder is still on the injured reserve list but he will need to be activated before he is eligible to play. He is a fourth liner so his fantasy value is negligible at best.

Jan Mursak suffered a collarbone injury Saturday and could be out for weeks.

Mursak will see doctors on Monday as he was in a sling Sunday. He was injured on his first shift when knocked into the boards. "I finished the period but when they got the results of the X-ray, they said I couldn't play," said Mursak. "It's not fun but I'm trying to stay positive." Look for Mursak to be put on the injured reserve list.

Jan Mursak has been excelling in the Austrian hockey league.

Mursak has 10 goals and 22 assists in 19 Austrian games. Obviously, he shouldn't be counted on to put up anything near those numbers if the lockout ends and he rejoins the Detroit Red Wings. Still, it might help set him up to be on the Red Wings' fourth line in the hypothetical 2012-13 season opener.

Tue, Nov 20, 2012 04:20:00 PM

Jan Mursak has seven goals and 15 assists in 13 Austrian games.

Mursak has been playing for Ljubljana Olimpija HK. He has a one-way contract, but shouldn't be regarded as a lock to make the Detorit Red Wings once this work stoppage ends.
Wed, Nov 7, 2012 10:28:00 AM

Jan Mursak has signed with HDD Telemach Olimpija Ljubljana of the Erste Bank Eishockey Liga to play in Slovenia.
