Keep updated on all the injury news and roster updates from around the NHL with daily Ice Chips.

Detroit Red Wings 

The Red Wings placed goalie Ville Husso on the injured reserve. 

Husso suffered a lower-body injury against the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

The 28-year-old has played in 18 games with the Wings this season, posting a 9-5-2 record with a 3.53 goals-against average and a .893 save percentage. 

Husso is in his second season playing for the Red Wings after spending the first two years of his career with the St. Louis Blues

Toronto Maple Leafs

The Maple Leafs loaned defenceman Max Lajoie to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. 

Lajoie, 26, hasn't recorded a point in four games with the Maple Leafs this season and has appeared in 14 games with the Marlies, producing five assists. 

The Quebec City native has seven goals and eight assists over 74 career games in the NHL with the Ottawa Senators, Carolina Hurricanes and Maple Leafs. 

Winnipeg Jets

Defenceman Ville Heinola (ankle) and forward Rasmus Kupari (shoulder) took part in Wednesday's morning skate, but were wearing non-contact jerseys.

Heinola, 22, suffered his ankle injury during a pre-season game in early October and was expected to miss two-three months.

Kupari, 23, hasn't played since Nov. 14 after suffering a shoulder injury against the New Jersey Devils. 

Tampa Bay Lightning 

The Bolts said injured defenceman Mikhail Sergachev is still being evaluated and didn't have an official update on his playing status for Thursday's home game against the Vegas Golden Knights. 

The 25-year-old left Tuesday's win over the St. Louis Blues in the opening period with a lower-body injury. 

Sergachev has two goals and 17 assists over 33 games with the Lightning this season, his seventh season in Tampa. 

Buffalo Sabres

Forward Jeff Skinner, who has missed the past three game due to an upper-body injury, was back on the ice for practice with his Sabres' teammates on Wednesday. 

 The 31-year-old has 12 goals and 10 assists over 30 games with the Sabres in 2023-24. 

New Jersey Devils

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reports that veteran defenceman Dougie Hamilton is expected to remain sidelined until the playoffs after undergoing surgery on torn pectoral muscle suffered in late November. The timeline should allow the Devils to spend the $9 million in cap space freed with the blueliner on long-term injured reserve. 

On Wednesday, the Devils assigned goalie Nico Daws to the AHL.
