Henrik Zetterberg (knee) isn't ready to participate in the Red Wings' practices.

Zetterberg will be skating on his own as the Red Wings' training camp begins. Red Wings GM Ken Holland previously stated his belief that Zetterberg will be ready for the start of the regular season.

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.

Henrik Zetterberg, who is currently recovering from a knee injury, felt he ran out of gas in the second half of the 2015-16 campaign.

Zetterberg had 33 points and a plus-five rating in 49 games before the All-Star break and 17 points with a staggering minus-20 rating in 33 contests after it. He was also limited to just one goal and nine points in his final 19 contests. "You have to find your times to be fresh," Zetterberg said. "That’s what kind of got me the last two years – I ran out of gas. You can’t play hockey at this level when you’re out of gas. One of those things is to manage your time, not just on the ice but off, too." Don't be surprised if Zetterberg ends up averaging a little bit less per game than last season's 19:25 minutes in an effort to avoid that kind of fatigue.

Henrik Zetterberg (knee) reiterated that his goal is to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Whether or not Zetterberg is available at the beginning of training camp remains up in the air. Zetterberg bowed out of the World Cup as a result of this injury.

Henrik Zetterberg (knee) may not be ready for the start of training camp, but he expects to be available for the start of the regular season.

"I talked to Henrik a couple of days this week," Red Wings GM Ken Holland said. "He injured his knee training for the upcoming season, the World Cup tournament and the NHL season. He made a decision [last week] that where his knee is at, he's not able to compete in the World Cup. He told me he doesn't think it is significant." Zetterberg will see how he feels over the next couple of weeks and Detroit will proceed accordingly after getting the results of his MRI.

Henrik Zetterberg has pulled out of the World Cup because of a knee injury.

Zetterberg also missed the 2014 Olympics because of a back injury. It's unclear how severe the injury is or if it will affect his ability to start the season on time. The 35-year-old was originally named captain of Team Sweden, but that honor will have to go to someone else. He'll be replaced by Calgary Flames forward Mikael Backlund.

Henrik Zetterberg may start the year on a line with newly signed center Frans Nielsen.

With the team's acquisition of Nielsen and Dylan Larkin moving to center, it sounds like Zetterberg could be shifted to the wing this season. The plan is to give Larkin a chance down the middle, and certainly Nielsen is one of our top two center icemen," said GM Ken Holland. "We're thinking Zetterberg is going to play with Nielsen, so obviously if Nielsen is down the middle, Zetterberg is on the wing. Now, we have to also consider that Zetterberg and Larkin played real well together [last season]."

Henrik Zetterberg will captain Team Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey.

The captain of the Detroit Red Wings is the only player with World Cup experience. Henrik Lundqvist, Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin were on the 2004 roster as well, but they didn't get a chance to play in the tournament. This will be Zetterberg's 13th international appearance for Sweden and his second as team captain.

Henrik Zetterberg has one goal in four games against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Round 1 of the playoffs.

The Red Wings need to win on Thursday to stay alive in the series. "Start with me, I have to be better, got to produce more," Zetterberg said. "I'm not happy with the way it's been so far. ... I think when things don't go well, you overthink stuff. When everything goes well, you just do stuff, and it works out. We just gotta keep believing in what we're doing." Detroit's power play has struggled in the postseason and that's where Zetterberg produced 22 of his 50 points during the regular season.
Apr 21 - 7:46 AM

Henrik Zetterberg is frustrated by the lack of success Detroit has had on the power play during the playoffs.

"We pass instead of shoot and when probably should shoot, we passed. They were blocking shots but we keep forcing pucks in there, too. We keep doing the same things over and over," he said after Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Lightning. "They dominated the special teams." The Red Wings didn't score on four attempts in Game 4 versus Tampa Bay and are now 1-for-21 in the series.
Apr 20 - 9:58 AM

Henrik Zetterberg found the back of the net in the Red Wings' 2-0 win over Tampa Bay in Game 3.

Zetterberg's goal was actually reviewed twice. Once because the on-ice officials wanted to see if he kicked it in and once because Lightning coach Jon Cooper challenged for goalie interference. This was Zetterberg's 57th career playoff goal. He sits third in franchise history behind Gordie Howe (67) and Steve Yzerman (70). The Red Wings still trail 2-1 in the series.
Apr 17 - 10:21 PM

Henrik Zetterberg took a slash to the hand in Game 1 on Wednesday, but he is expected to be fine to play on Friday.

Coach Jeff Blashill said everyone who played in the playoff opener is available for Game 2. "I read that," said Blashill regarding Valtteri Filppula's slash on Zetterberg. "I didn't see it. He’s (Zetterberg) available." The incident occurred late in the contest. Zetterberg had a plus-1 rating and one shot on Wednesday, but he didn't pick up a point.
Apr 15 - 7:58 AM

Henrik Zetterberg is hoping for a long playoff run because he knows that he is running out of chances.

"For a few of us here, we know the chances of going all the way is getting less and less," said the 35-year-old forward. "When you've been in the league over 10 years, you know your time is running out. It's not just (Datsyuk), you never know when you get a chance again. ... The last couple years, the exits have been too early, we want to go deeper. Last year we were close, gave them a helluva series, and I thought we played well enough to move on. It's no different this year." Zetterberg led the Red Wings in scoring during the regular season with 50 points in 82 games.

Veteran forward Henrik Zetterberg hasn't scored many goals lately but he picked up a pair of assists Monday night in the Detroit Red Wings' 3-2 victory over the visiting Buffalo Sabres.

Zetterberg notched his 33rd assist of the season on the game's opening goal, a power-play marker by Dylan Larkin at 18:32 of the first period. Larkin's goal was his 22nd of the season. Zetterberg's second assist of the night and 34th of the season came on a goal in the third period by Luke Glendening. Glendening has eight goals this season. Zetterberg hasn't scored a goal in his past 18 games. The win for the Red Wings Monday kept them tied with the Philadelphia Flyers for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference.
