According to George Sipple from the Free Press Red Wings face-off master maybe out longer than expected.
On Friday Kris Draper was sent in for further testing on his groin after a lack of improvement since the injury occurred during training camp. As part of the testing Draper had an ultrasound done that found a tear.
There is no information yet as to what they are going to do to fix the injury - give it time or if it will require further attention. For now there is no time table as to when Kris Draper will return to the line up and the regular season starts in under two weeks.
