According to reports out of Detroit, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock has confirmed that forward Dan Cleary will be out for a month with a separated shoulder. Cleary was injured Wednesday night in Detroit's loss to St. Louis.

Cleary joins Johan Franzen, Valtteri Filppula, Jason Williams, and Niklas Kronwall on Detroit's injury report.

Only Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datysuk have more points so far this season than Cleary, who had 16 before getting hurt.
