A Zetterberg update from Khan

Of Henrik Zetterberg-related note from MLive’s Ansar Khan:

General manager Ken Holland, during Sunday’s conference call about the team’s free-agent signings, wasn’t certain about Zetterberg’s plans.

“The last I talked to him, I think he’s planning on playing,” Holland said. “Obviously, his back is going to determine whether he can or can’t. Do I have a clear green light? I’m expecting him to play. Do I have a clear green light? No. I don’t know that I’ve got a clear green light.

“Obviously, when you are dealing with the back and you’re dealing with the health of a person, it’s hard to read the future when it comes to health. Obviously, that’s a key piece for us. I’ll stay in touch with Henrik as we get into July to see how his health is.”

One thought on “A Zetterberg update from Khan”

  1. Early June we had reports he wants to play another year. Now we arent sure because of health? He hasnt missed a game in three seasons. I get that the back is a finnicky beast, not to be toyed with. To me it sounds like KH is slowly softening the blow to us.

    Maybe the need for more veterans is because we are potentially losing our captain.

    I personally forsee Z leading us to the playoffs. Jon Snow style.
