Henrik Zetterberg scored a goal and an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over Toronto.
After Toronto opened the scoring early in the first, Zetterberg helped set up Justin Abdelkader's game-tying goal in the same frame. The 34-year-old scored the game-winning goal at the 3:57 mark of the third period before Brad Richards put it out of reach for Toronto with an empty net goal. Zetterberg should be able to post similar offensive numbers to last season (17 goals and 66 points in 77 games) if he stays healthy. Oct 2 - 11:07 PM

Henrik Zetterberg picked up a goal in the Red Wings’ 4-3 preseason overtime loss against the Bruins on Saturday night.

Zetterberg should be a lock for at least 60 points this season, as long as he stays healthy. Tomas Tatar and Jakub Kindl notched the other markers.

Henrik Zetterberg looked very healthy and fresh in the Red Wings' first practice Friday.

He definitely impressed new head coach Jeff Blashill. "Z (Henrik Zetterberg) was real good," Blashill said. "He was skating great, which was good to see." Talent has never been the problem with Zetterberg as he is one of the most dynamic players in the NHL. It has been his health, or lack thereof, that has held him back in recent years. Although we are buoyed by this news, we remain skeptical about whether Zetterberg can remain injury-free for a whole season. In any event, he will center the Wings' top line alongside Gustav Nyquist and Justin Abdelkader, at least until Pavel Datsyuk returns from injury.

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press believes the Red Wings need to keep Henrik Zetterberg fresher this season.

That will be challenging, considering Pavel Datsyuk’s offseason surgery could sideline him until November. Brad Richards is on the roster, and there’s a chance Dylan Larkin could earn a spot, too. But those two players aren’t guarantees in a top-six role. Zetterberg, 34, had 17 goals and 66 points in 77 games last season.

Henrik Zetterberg thinks that Red Wings coach Mike Babcock's decision to move on might ultimately be for the best.

"I want to thank Mike for the time he had here, but I think both him and us probably decided it was time," Zetterberg said. He feels that between the Red Wings' summer signings and the appointment of a new coach, Jeff Blashill, the Detroit has been given a fresh start. He also feels that sometimes teams need a new voice behind the bench. Babcock will be working for the Toronto Maple Leafs this season.

Henrik Zetterberg won the King Clancy Memorial Trophy on Wednesday night.

The King Clancy Memorial Trophy is "given to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community." This is the second award in three seasons Zetterberg has be recognized for his humanitarian and community services, having won the NHL Foundation Award in 2013. Zetterberg had a solid rebound season from his injury-plagued 2013-14 campaign to lead the team in assists with 49 and points with 66, on way to the Red Wings' 24th consecutive playoff berth.

The Detroit Red Wings will honor the late Matthew Wuest (founder of CapGeek) by renaming the trophy awarded to the NHL Prospect Tournament champion the Matthew Wuest Memorial Cup.

Along with Wuest's work at CapGeek, tracking the salary information for all 30 NHL teams as well as accumulating historical data, Wuest created and maintained RedWingsCentral which provided rankings, scouting profiles and features focused on Red Wings prospects. He also curated statistical data, some of which was proprietary, about the players in the Traverse City tournament starting with its inception in 1998. Wuest, who lost his two-year battle with colon cancer at age 35 in March, was an integral part of the hockey community. Helping to bridge the gaps in understanding players throughout their careers for fans and upper management alike. For what it's worth, current Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg and perennial all-star Pavel Datsyuk are among the highest scoring alumni from the tournament.

Henrik Zetterberg had a minus-3 rating in Game 6 and he still doesn't have a goal in the series, but coach Mike Babcock isn't concerned.

"He's been very good, very determined, played hard and hasn't scored," said Babcock. "But the good thing about him, he does a lot of other things we don't have to worry about." Zetterberg has three assists in six games.

Updating an earlier item, Henrik Zetterberg is indeed scratched from Saturday's regular season finale against Carolina.

"We've had a bunch of guys playing who shouldn't have been playing for a period of time, so they are out," Coach Babcock said. Zetterberg ends his regular season with 17 goals, 66 points, and winning 51% of his 1,064 draws over 77 games this season.
Apr 11 - 6:26 PM

It is possible Henrik Zetterberg will not play Saturday against Carolina.

The Red Wings have clinched a playoff spot and the veteran Zetterberg could use a day off. Don't be surprised if he is a healthy scratch Saturday, espicially since Tomas Jurco has been cleared to return to action and Daniel Cleary would love to get a game in before the playoffs start.

Apr 10 - 9:21 AM

Henrik Zetterberg broke his personal 11-game goal drought and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Carolina.

Zetterberg would simply not be denied as he absorbed several whacks and two checks while circling the net in the third period, setting up Pavel Datsyuk for the eventual winner. Zetterberg now has two goals over his last 29 games, giving him 17 on the year. But he still leads the team in points with 64.
