Injured Detroit Red Wings forward Mike Modano is targetting a return in late February.

Modano, out since late November after having surgery to repair severed tendons in his right wrist, believes he could be back in action during a road trip at the end of the month, according to NHL.com. The 40-year-old has been skating with the Wings and has begun to take part in some contact drills.

In 20 games with the Red Wings, Modano has two goals and six assists.
