Henrik Zetterberg says he is ready to return to Red Wings' lineup
Henrik Zetterberg says he'll be back for the Detroit Red Wings Saturday against the Florida Panthers, which should be a big boost for the struggling team.
Zetterberg said he is ready to play tomorrow at Florida after being out since Dec. 1 with herniated disc.— Ansar Khan (@AnsarKhanMLive) December 27, 2013
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.
