Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk injured his shoulder in Monday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The 36-year-old had one of Detroit's two goals in its 2-1 win and assisted on the other, scored by left winger Tomas Tatar.

Datsyuk is coming off a season in which he was limited to just 45 games due to injures, the lowest total of his career. He scored 17 goals and had 37 total points in 2013-14.

The Red Wings play the Chicago Blackhawks in their second preseason game on Tuesday.
