Henrik Zetterberg, at ease in retirement, reveals details of injury | Detroit News

This is an absolutely great article/interview with Henrik Zetterberg that provides a nice in-depth, behind the scenes look at his injury and time with the Red Wings. There’s some good stuff about Zetterberg’s relationship with former coach Mike Babcock too. This is definitely worth your time and I highly recommend you reading this.

“I remember when he lost half a lip against the Oshawa Generals. I remember him playing with a knee that nobody thought he would ever play on again as he finished his career. This guy’s a warrior. I mean, he’s a warrior. And I don’t know if you say that about all stars, about all Hall of Famers, about all players who are maybe [in] the top 10 all time. I don’t know if you say ‘warrior.’

“There’s not many guys who you can say, in that category, are like that. And he is. He really is.”

Another great Red Wings-related story. Steve Yzerman was the man. This is another article that’s absolutely worth your time.
