HSJ: Henrik Zetterberg will continue playing in 18-19

The Free Press’s Helene St. James spoke with Henrik Zetterberg today, and Zetterberg informed her that he plans on playing for another season:

Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg is preparing to play at least one more season.

Zetterberg left his return open-ended when the regular season ended in April, saying he’d need to evaluate whether his health, especially his back, could continue to hold up. It appears he’s confident it can.

“I’m in training and looking forward to a better season,” Zetterberg told the Free Press Wednesday. He’s back in his native Sweden, where he spends the offseason along with his wife and their son.

  1. It would have been a big surprise to me if he didn’t show up this coming season. 19-20 season? I doubt it but you never know. He would have to really WANT to play and prioritize another year over family and life to do so. Of all the players that I would like to see off the roster to open up space, Z is not one.

  2. Yeah, Z is still the main spark plug in this team. The man’s integrity alone is amazing to have around.
