Henrik Zetterberg, who says his retirement has been good so far, decided to share the details of his back injury.
Zetterberg first started dealing with back problems in 2006 when he was still in the early stages of his career. He had a weakened disc that was leading to back spasms. The condition deteriorated until 2014 when he left a game in Sochi on a stretcher with herniated discs that required surgery. After that though, Zetterberg had a related nerve issue that made it hard to control his ankle. He still ended up playing in two postseason games in 2014, but only by having his ankle taped to prevent movement. Over the summer he was able to improve through conditioning. That seemed to be enough until January when the nerve issue impacting his ankle came back. He managed to get through the rest of the season, but can't play anymore. Fortunately he's fine when walking, but his ankle gives way if he tries to skate. Naturally, under those circumstances, he knew it was time to end what was an incredible career despite the health issues that he endured throughout most of it. Nov 2 - 1:38 PM
