CBS DETROIT - The injury woes just keep piling up for the Detroit Red Wings. With the team’s two best players, Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg, already sidelined, the Red Wings took another hit Monday.

The team announced on Twitter that center Joakim Andersson is out indefinitely with a broken foot. The Red Wings suffered from a severe enough lack of depth at center already that they traded for longtime Nashville Predators center David Legwand at the deadline Wednesday instead of pursuing a defenseman, which would have been their first priority otherwise.

Centers Datsyuk, Stephen Weiss and Darren Helm have also been out of commission recently. Detroit has shut Datysuk down for at least three weeks. Weiss has been trying in vain to return from sports hernia surgery, and Helm is suffering from a head injury that knocked him out of Tuesday’s game.

Detroit still sits on the bubble as the postseason draws closer, and the team is fighting to keep its 22-year postseason streak alive. The Red Wings sit in the ninth spot in the Eastern Conference, right behind Columbus.
