DETROIT (AP) — Detroit Red Wings forward Patrick Eaves is scheduled to have surgery on his broken jaw Monday and is expected to be out six to eight weeks.

Eaves was taken off the ice on a stretcher late in Saturday night’s game against Nashville after he was struck near the right ear by Roman Josi’s slap shot.

He was conscious and lifted himself onto the cart before leaving Joe Louis Arena.

Eaves was taken to Detroit Medical Center after the game and was still there Sunday afternoon. He has one point in 10 games this season for the Red Wings.
