Detroit Red Wings goaltender Jonas Gustavsson is expected to miss the next two months of action after suffering a dislocated shoulder. The injury occurred last Wednesday, as he was reaching for a rebound before New York Rangers forward Derick Brassard scored.

General manager Ken Holland says that surgery is not planned and Gustavsson will be evaluated in 4-6 weeks, as reported on

The 30-year-old netminder has appeared in three games this season. He has a 1-1-1 record, posting a 2.30 GAA and a .908 save percentage. He also has one shutout.

Gustavsson was the backup goaltender, so Jimmy Howard will continue to get the bulk of the starts.

The Red Wings recalled Petr Mrazek from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League to take over backup duties. In 11 NHL games during the past two seasons, Mrazek is 3-5-0 with a decent 1.80 GAA and a .926 save percentage. Mrazek was 1-2-0 with a 3.80 GAA and .854 save percentage in four games this season with the Griffins.
