Drake has a hairline fracture in his left cheekbone from being rammed into the glass Thursday by San Jose defenceman Kyle McLaren. Drake saw a specialist Monday.

"No surgery is required," Holland told the Detroit Free Press. "The doctor has ruled him out Wednesday and Friday. The doctor wants him to take a week from the time of the injury to give it time to heal."

Holland said Drake will wear a full face shield when he returns. Drake is scheduled to see doctors again Friday, and Holland said he hopes to take Drake on a three-game Canadian road trip that begins Sunday at Vancouver.
