After sitting out since Dec. 1 with a herniated disc, Detroit Red Wings captainHenrik Zetterberg says he will return to the lineup Saturday against the Florida Panthers.

Before missing the last three weeks, Zetterberg was a real bright spot for the Red Wings, who have really struggled mightily in his absence. The Wings captain has 30 points in 28 games this year and is still the team's leading scorer despite missing 11 games.

Without Zetterberg in the lineup, Detroit has trudged through a 2-6-3 record. Getting him back should be a huge boost heading into the highly-anticipated Winter Classic on Jan. 1. Zetterberg should see action in two games before the outdoor contest.
