Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reported the injury after Zetterberg didn't appear for warmups. He's day-to-day while Dan Cleary will take his place in the lineup against the Florida Panthers.
If the Red Wings thought they were out of the injury-plagued woods this month, they were wrong.

Zetterberg missed a month earlier this season with a herniated disc.
