As noted by many (but it looks like Khan was first), Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard has re-injured his groin and will be unavailable when the Red Wings visit the New York Rangers on Wednesday.
Ty Conklin has been placed on re-entry waivers as the Wings attempt to call him up from the Grand Rapids Griffins. A team could claim him for half of his salary and cap hit. If he clears, he'll start in New York.
Howard joins backup netminder Joey MacDonald on the shelf, as well as forwards Johan Franzen, Darren Helm and Patrick Eaves, and defensemen Nicklas Lidstrom, Jonathan Ericsson and Jakub Kindl.
