The Detroit Red Wings have been in a steep decline lately.

Detroit suffered a seven-game losing streak that was capped with a 10-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Dec. 2. The Red Wings stopped the bleeding with a 5-1 win on Tuesday, but they fell right back with a 6-1 defeat against the St. Louis Blues on Saturday. "I’ve been frustrated and mad the way we’ve been playing lately," Henrik Zetterberg said. "But today, you don’t want to lose at home 6-1, but the first two periods we did a lot good things but the puck ended up in our net rather than their net." At this point, the Red Wings are 11-13-5 this season. There is still a chance they can claw their way into the playoffs, but based on what we've seen so far this season, the 2017-18 Red Wings don't look like a postseason caliber team.

Henrik Zetterberg was frustrated and almost in shock after Detroit was pounded by Montreal in two games last week.

The Canadiens defeated the Red Wings 6-3 on Thursday and 10-1 on Saturday. "I've played professional hockey for 20 years, I don't think I've ever been a part of anything like what happened here tonight," Zetterberg said after Saturday's contest. "The way we played, with the way our last game went, what happened after that game, the next day – and then we come out with this here tonight." He hasn't recorded a point in the last three games after he had an assist in three straight outings. Zetterberg, who has 15 points in 27 games, will try to get his team to bounce back against the red hot Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
Dec 4 - 10:19 AM

With just 12 goals in their last six games, the Red Wings are focused on getting the 'dirty' goals to get going offensively.

'Dirty' goals can be categorized by either tips, rebounds, screens, or second-chance opportunities. "We’ve got to get better on a few things, score some uglier goals," captain Henrik Zetterberg said."Pucks are laying there. We’ve just got to win those battles. We were in front of the net but we didn’t win any second battles or second chances. It’s been an issue before, I would say, but the last two games it had been better." Zetterberg, 37, is fourth on the Red Wings in points with 10 in 14 games. If the Red Wings wish to get back into the post-season, they will need more goal scoring from the top to the bottom of the lineup.

Henrik Zetterberg has just one point in his last four contests.

He collected one assist four games ago and that's all the offense he's been able to provide this season. Zetterberg has also finished with a minus rating six consecutive games (the Wings have lost each one of those games). Things aren't looking pretty in Detroit right now. The captain has four goals and five assists in 11 games this season.
Oct 28 - 8:53 AM

Henrik Zetterberg found the back of the net in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to Toronto.

Zetterberg has had a productive start to the season with four goals and four assists in seven games. He was Detroit's most consistent scorer last year and the 37-year-old forward is showing no signs of slowing down.
Oct 19 - 8:35 AM

Henrik Zetterberg came up big for the Red Wings in a 6-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

Zetterberg picked up a goal and three helpers and was the key piece in handing Vegas their first ever loss. He's now up to seven points through five games and continues to produce at a high level. He should be owned in all formats.
Oct 14 - 1:06 AM

Henrik Zetterberg scored his second of the season in the Red Wings' 4-2 victory over the Arizona Coyotes.

Zetterberg is now just 49 points shy of passing Sergei Federov for fifth most points in Detroit Red Wings history. He's off to a good start so far this season, with two goals and three points in four games. Zetterberg led his team in scoring last season with 68 points, so he remains a solid fantasy option even in the late stages of his career.
Oct 13 - 1:13 AM

Henrik Zetterberg had an assist in a 4-2 loss to Dallas on Tuesday night.

Zetterberg, who helped set up a power-play marker by Justin Abdelkader in the contest, has one goal and two points in three games this year.
Oct 11 - 8:33 AM

Henrik Zetterberg picked up an assist during his preseason debut against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

Zetterberg helped set up Gustav Nyquist's goal. The veteran missed a good chunk of the exhibition games because of a neck injury. It looks like he'll be ready for the start of the regular season. The 36-year-old had 15 goals and 51 assists in 82 games last season, so there is some fantasy value there.
Sep 30 - 10:42 AM

Henrik Zetterberg will make his preseason debut on Friday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Zetterberg has been unable to play in an exhibition game because he's been dealing with a neck injury. He'll skate on a line with Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar. The 36-year-old had 17 goals and 51 assists in 82 games last season.
Sep 29 - 2:35 PM

Henrik Zetterberg (neck) took part in Wednesday's practice.

Zetterberg skated alongside Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist and was also part of the power-play drills. He might get into an exhibition contest on Friday.
Sep 27 - 1:49 PM

Henrik Zetterberg (neck) skated briefly with Detroit's second group on Sunday.

Coach Jeff Blashill hopes that Zetterberg will be available to play in one of the team's last three preseason games. He has already been ruled out for Monday's exhibition tilt versus Pittsburgh.
Sep 24 - 4:49 PM

The Detroit Red Wings believe that Henrik Zetterberg (neck) will be able to play by next Friday.

As previously reported, Zetterberg will miss Saturday's exhibition game due to a kink in his neck. He didn't miss a single regular season contest in either of the last two seasons.
Sep 22 - 3:03 PM

Henrik Zetterberg is dealing with a kink in his neck.

Zetterberg will be held out of Saturday's preseason game as a result. There's reason to push the 36-year-old veteran for the sake of an exhibition contest. While his age does make the threat of injuries more concerning, it is worth emphasizing that he played the full 82 regular season games in each of his last two campaigns.
