Henrik Zetterberg will play between Gustav Nyquist and Justin Abdelkader on Monday night.
Coach Jeff Blashill would prefer to stop shuffling his lines, but he's trying to awaken Detroit's slumbering offense. The move should give Nyquist a boost, as he has enjoyed plenty of success with Zetterberg in the past. Nov 16 - 6:46 PM

Henrik Zetterberg scored his 300th NHL goal Friday night in the Red Wings' 2-1 win over Toronto.

Zetterberg is now the eighth player in Red Wing history to reach that milestone. He is also the fifth Wing to register 300 goals and 800 points, joining Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio, Steve Yzerman and Sergei Fedorov. Just imagine what the 35-year-old Zetterberg could have done if he had been healthier all these years.

Henrik Zetterberg hit two milestones in Saturday's win over Ottawa.

Zetterberg's first assist gave him 500 for his career, while his second assist allowed him to reach the 800-point club. The 35-year-old has continued to put up points this season. He has three goals and 14 points in 11 games. "I’m happy I reached it and I’ve played with a lot of great players who helped me reach that," said Zetterberg. His next goal will be the 300th of his career.

Henrik Zetterberg scored in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Zetterberg scored a power play goal with exactly three minutes remaining in the second period to cut Ottawa's lead to 2-1, but that's as close as Detroit would get. The 35-year-old has three goals and 12 points in 10 games this season. Teemu Pulkkinen and Gustav Nyquist picked up the assists on Zetterberg's goal.

Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill praised Henrik Zetterberg's effort in Saturday's win over Vancouver.

The Wings were badly outplayed in the first 40 minutes of the game, but Blashill liked what he saw from his captain. "Henrik Zetterberg, from the drop of the puck, was the one guy who was competing and battling at a champion level and the rest of the team followed suit in the third period," Blashill said. "Our competitive level and battle level rose to the level it has to be to be successful." Zetterberg picked up an assist on Tomas Tatar's game-tying goal in the third frame.

Henrik Zetterberg wants to get Detroit's power play going.

"The power play hasn't been good the last couple of games," he said. "We have to fix that before we go (on this week's three-game western Canada road trip)." Zetterberg feels the team needs to "get back to the drawing board and see what we can do better." The Wings rank 20th in the league with a power-play efficiency of 15.4 percent (2-for-13).

Henrik Zetterberg said he was surprised that Canadiens forward Brendan Gallagher's game-tying goal counted on Saturday night.

Gallagher crashed into goaltender Petr Mrazek's net as the puck went in, but after a review, the officials deemed the goal was legitimate. "When stuff like that happens, when they kind of just slams into the goalie, it is not often there is a goal. I thought that should have been no goal. That is a dangerous play. And it is not the first time No. 11 on their team is running into a goalie, either. There was pretty heavy contact." The Red Wings went on to lose the game by a score of 4-1.

Henrik Zetterberg scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Zetterberg registered an assist on Gustav Nyquist's power play goal in the second period to give Detroit a 1-0 lead. He also added the insurance marker in the third to put the Wings up by two. Rookie Dylan Larkin and defenseman Kyle Quincey picked up the assists on the goal. The 35-year-old is off to a fast start in 2015-16. He now has two goals, 7 points and a plus-5 rating in just three games.

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.
Sep 6 - 9:47 AM

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.
