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.

The Wings seem intent on trying the following lines at least at the beginning of training camp.

The 36-year-old forward led Detroit in scoring last season with 68 points (17 goals, 51 assists) in 82 games last season.
