About Henrik Zetterberg
With the retirement of superstar defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom, fellow Swede Henrik Zetterberg has taken up the mantle of captain of the NHL's Detroit Red Wings. Along with longtime teammate Pavel Datsyuk, Zetterberg has helped keep the Wings competitive in the increasingly tough NHL despite the loss of their seven time Norris Trophy winning blueliner.
Like a fine wine Henrik Zetterberg only seems to get better with age. Now 33 years old he is enjoying his best offensive season since the 2007-08 campaign, when he notched 43 goals and 92 points in just 75 games. This year he is again putting up better than a point a game and among the league leaders in that category.
Though the Red Wings might no longer be the juggernaut they were with Zetterberg's experience, leadership and skill they will certainly be a contender until the day he finally decides to hang up the skates.
