Jonas Gutavsson may return to the NHL during the week of February 7th.

He will start Saturday night for the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL on a conditioning stint and may need another game or two to shake off the rust after being out of action since November 5th with a shoulder injury. The Red Wings could recall him for games against Arizona or Colorado next week. Petr Mrazek will continue to get the starts until either Gustavsson or Jimmy Howard returns to action, but he has struggled and the Wings will make the switch as soon as one of their veteran netminders return to health.

Jonas Gustavsson will have a conditioning stint on Saturday with the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins.

Gustavsson hasn't played since separating his shoulder back on Nov. 5th at the end of his tilt with the New York Rangers. He's 1-1-1 in three games this season with seven goals against. He was 16-5-4 with 68 goals against in 27 games last season.

Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) will probably need to have a conditioning stint before he rejoins the Red Wings lineup.

That stint in the minors could happen in the near future. Additionally, if he is sent down, it will probably just be for a game or two. He has a 2.30 GAA and .908 save percentage in just three games this season.

Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) could be back on Thursday.

He practiced Monday and it's believed that he's another couple of days from being able to return from a shoulder injury. Gustavsson's last appearance for the Red Wings came on Nov. 5 against the New York Rangers.

Jonas Gustavsson continues to practice with the hope of returning from a disclocated shoulder soon after the All-Star break.

He's progressing but there is no exact timetable for his return to action. When he is healthy enough to play, he will displace Petr Mrazek as Jimmy Howard's backup, once Howard recovers from a groin injury.

Jonas Gustavsson (shoulder) still appears to be two or three weeks away from returning.

He joined the Red Wings late in Sunday's practice and faced some shots after the session. "I still have some work to do but it's getting better," Gustavsson said. "I wish it would be quicker but you can't force it. You just do your work every day and try to make it heal as much as possible." He hasn't played since Nov. 5 when he suffered a shoulder injury.

Jonas Gustavsson may have trouble returning from a dislocated shoulder by January 7th.

The injury was sustained on November 7th and the original prognosis was that Gustavsson would miss two months. There does not appear to be enough good news in his recovery to suggest he will be back in the next 10 days. Petr Mrazek will continue to back up Jimmy Howard for the foreseeable future.

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to be sidelined for about two months due to a dislocated shoulder.

The silver lining is that Gustavsson isn't scheduled to have surgery. He's a capable backup and his injury will force the Red Wings to lean more heavily on Jimmy Howard.

Jonas Gustavsson suffered a separated left shoulder at the end of Wednesday's overtime loss to the Rangers.

According to GM Ken Holland, the Red Wings backup goalie will miss "a few weeks." Petr Mrazek is slated to be recalled from the minors to take Gustavsson's place.

Jonas Gustavsson will start for the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday.

Jimmy Howard is getting a game off after stopping 29 of 31 shots Tuesday night. Gustavsson has a 1.45 GAA and .935 save percentage in two games in 2014-15.

Jonas Gustavsson yielded three goals on 16 shots in Detroit’s 4-2 loss to the Flyers on Saturday night.

A very lousy performance from the Red Wings’ backup netminder. Detroit owned this game, but Gustavsson let them down, giving up three goals from 18:21 of the second period to 11:05 of the third. The 30-year-old is a subpar backup in a league that now requires two able ones. He has a 1.45 goals-against average and .935 save percentage in two starts.

Jonas Gustavsson is expected to start on Saturday.

Gustavsson earned a 30-save shutout in his first and so far only start of the season. He's a solid backup, but isn't a threat to take the starting gig from Jimmy Howard.
