DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Kris Draper says he will miss Games 1 and 2 against the Anaheim Ducks.
Draper said Thursday his upper-body injury will be evaluated later this week. He did not play in Detroit's first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Draper's plus-minus rating was a team-worst and career-low minus-13 this season for the defending Stanley Cup champions.
Second-seeded Detroit will host the eighth-seeded Ducks on Friday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals. After Game 2 is played Sunday at Joe Louis Arena, Draper hopes to be cleared to play when the series shifts to California.

I have heard a lot of discussion about this subject and would like to hear from you with only one week left before the draft. I believe this will be our pick. We could be lucky enough to trade him away on draft day and get other people who we need more, or we could end up with our Franchise QB.
