Kirk Maltby Is Out For Season; Red Wings Now Looking For Another Forward

The Detroit Red Wings have announced today that forward Kirk Maltby will not be returning this season; his shoulder simply has too many injuries, the Detroit Free Press is reporting. Maltby played in 52 games this season and only had six points. This leaves the Red Wings now with just 12 healthy forwards. This from the Free Press:

Holland said he is exploring whether he can add to the front line via a trade before Wednesday’s 3 p.m. deadline, but he’s somewhat hesitant to trade the two assets the Wings have — defensemen Brett Lebda and Derek Meech

It will be interesting to see what the Red Wings will do with the deadline less than 24 hours away.
