Here is your report from Thrashers practice on Tuesday morning.
* Bryan Little did not practice. Coach Craig Ramsay said he was sore after being hit by a Dustin Byfuglien shot during Sunday’s game against the Islanders. He was given the day off for treatment and will be re-evaluated before Wednesday’s game against the Red Wings.
“No one is sure, but he’s made some improvement from the other day,” Ramsay said. “We’ll see how it goes with a good day of treatment.”
Fredrik Modin (upper body) also did not practice. The forward has not played or practiced since suffering the injury last Saturday against Pittsburgh.
With Little and Modin held out of practice, defenseman Freddy Meyer donned a forward jersey and skated in Little’s spot with Evander Kane and Anthony Stewart. Meyer nearly got in the lineup last week as a forward when Eric Boulton injured his hand.
* Ondrej Pavelec will start in goal Wednesday against Detroit. Hard to keep him out with the way he’s been playing of late.
