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.
