Henrik Zetterberg will not play in Tuesday's tilt with the Los Angeles Kings.

"I have some symptoms that I don't have when I'm 100 percent," Zetterberg said. "Until those symptoms go away, we've just got to take it easy." The Captain was coy with what ails him, but it's likely a concussion. He shares the team lead with Pavel Datsyuk with 49 points through 57 games this season to go along with 15 goals. Zetterberg has also won 53% of his faceoffs thus far.

Henrik Zetterberg (head) doesn't feel like he's made any progress since he was hit in the head on Saturday.

"Hopefully, I will feel better soon," Zetterberg said. "I thought it would be better but unfortunately, no. The symptoms have got to go away before I can do anything more heavy. Until then I've just got to take it easy." Zetterberg said he hasn't "ruled it as a concussion," but based on what he's saying, it sure sounds like a concussion. Either way, he rode a stationary bike on Monday and intends to take it easy until the symptoms go away.

Henrik Zetterberg (head) is projected to miss Tuesday's game.

Zetterberg was also unavailable on Monday. He's not feeling well, which given that he was hit in the head, makes us wonder if he has a concussion. Despite that, the Red Wings aren't putting him through the concussion protocol. "I don't think we think there's any need to," Red Wings GM Ken Holland. Consider Zetterberg day-to-day for now.

This could be a big blow for the Red Wings and Zetterberg fantasy owners as he was leading the Wings in scoring this season with 15 goals and 34 assists in 57 games played.

He stayed in the training room and it's unclear at this time if he will be available for Monday's game at Anaheim. "He was in the room (Sunday) talking with (Gustav) Nyquist about who was going to buy dinner," said coach Mike Babcock, which could mean that his condition isn't so bad. The Wings will see how he feels Monday morning.

Niklas Kronwall believes that Henrik Zetterberg left Saturday's game because he was punched in the head by Stars' forward Jamie Benn.

"I heard he got punched in the head," said Kronwall. "I don't know if it was once or twice, even, when Benn got his penalty there. It didn't look very good, but hopefully Hank will recover and we will get him back soon." The extent of Zetterberg's injury isn't known just yet. He is considered day-to-day right now.

The Red Wings' superstar is starting to heat up with points in three of four games (2G, 3A). The 34 year-old is having a solid season with 36 points in 41 games and if he stays healthy, he could hit that point per game mark that he hasn't hit since 2010.
