Another d-man down: Ian White out 2-3 weeks with leg laceration

At this point, it’s downright dangerous to be a member of the Detroit Red Wings.

Per Ansar Khan of MLive.com, defenseman Ian White is out 2-3 weeks with a leg laceration suffered during last night’s loss to Dallas.

White’s injury is just the latest on the team’s back end.

Yesterday, the Wings were forced to sign veteran defenseman Kent Huskins after it was learned Carlo Colaiacovo could miss as much as a month with a shoulder injury.

No word when another injured Detroit d-man, Jonathan Ericsson (hip, day-to-day), will return.

On the bright side, Jakub Kindl is expected to return to the lineup Friday against Minnesota.
