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. Nov 4 - 10:31 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
Sep 22 - 1:41 PM

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

Henrik Zetterberg is centering the Wings' first line alongside Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar, while Dylan Larkin is centering the second unit between Justin Abdelkader and Anthony Mantha. Frans Nielsen moves down to the third line playing in the middle with Darrren Helm and P.A. Parenteau. Keep an eye on this situation going forward.

The 36-year-old forward led Detroit in scoring last season with 68 points (17 goals, 51 assists) in 82 games last season.
Sep 14 - 12:56 PM
