Wings Eaves needs surgery for broken jaw
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.
