After six straight wins, Detroit lost on home ice against the Bruins. Captain Zetterberg set an example for his team and kept heavy pressure on Rask, shooting five pucks, all which were stopped.

The Red Wings have won six games in a row, but captain Henrik Zetterberg isn't impressed with the way they've played lately.

The Wings are one of the hottest teams in the NHL right now, but their leader isn't satisfied. "We’re getting closer and closer to that loss," Zetterberg said. "We’re getting a little overconfident, turning pucks over too much, and right now our goalies are saving us. They can’t do that all the time. We had a good stretch of four games where we played real solid. But now it’s easy to use that a little bit and get a little too confident."
Oct 29 - 10:54 AM

Henrik Zetterberg is projected to play with Dylan Larkin on Monday night.

"If you go through the course of (last) season I thought they (Larkin and Zetterberg) were pretty good together, so we'll see if that chemistry can remain here this year," coach Jeff Blashill said. Detroit is off to a 0-2-0 start this season, so Tomas Tatar will join Zetterberg and Larkin on a new top line.
Oct 17 - 5:34 PM

Henrik Zetterberg will start his 14th season with the Detroit Red Wings in 2016-17.

"I don't feel like I'm 36," he said. "I don't feel like the oldest guy on the team. But I am." The veteran captain will be responsible for helping the Wings' younger players become better NHLers. He is slated to open the regular season on a line with Tomas Tatar and Frans Nielsen at center.

Oct 9 - 10:50 AM

Henrik Zetterberg (knee) is projected to play in Saturday's preseason game.

It would be Zetterberg's first exhibition game of 2016 and also his last given that it's the final contest on Detroit's preseason schedule. Still, that would set him up to play in the Red Wings' season opener.

Sep 22 - 12:00 PM

If nothing else, captain Henrik Zetterberg will be ready for Detroit's season opener.

That's according to GM Ken Holland, by the way. Zetterberg, who by his own admission "ran out of gas" in the second half last season, still finished with 13 goals and 50 points across all 82 games. The soon-to-be 36-year-old isn't who he used to be, but can still provide excellent depth production in fantasy.
