Justin Abdelkader Hit

MSU alumnus, Justin Abdelkader, is arguably off to his best start in his eighth season with the Detroit Red Wings. Abdelkader had 15 points in just 24 games played, scoring 7 goals and 8 assists.

Unfortunately, Abdelkader was victim to a vicious hit from Luca Sbisa in late November. He suffered a separated shoulder and initially was day-to-day. The following day, the Red Wings announced he would miss two weeks with an upper body injury.

See the hit here:

Abdelkader has been a big reason for the Red Wings early success this year. He has been producing points and has been a force to be reckoned with in front of the net. Drawing comparisons from Red Wing’s great Tomas Holmstrom

Abdelkader returned to practice prior to the Red Wings, 2-1, over the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Red Wings will need Abdelkader’s fearlessness and leadership back on the ice to stay at the top of a competitive Eastern Conference.
