  • Red Wings' Henrik Zetterberg: Career over
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zetterberg (chronic back pain) is retiring, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. The announcement came from Red Wings general manager Ken Holland. Zetterberg had been dealing with chronic back pain this offseason and had made little progress in his recovery bid. As a result, the soon-to-be 38-year-old will hang up the skates for good (but will spend the 2018-19 season on LTIR). Zetterberg finishes his NHL career with 1,082 games played, tallying 960 points along the way and also winning a Stanley Cup in 2008. Detroit must now decide who its next captain will be, with Dylan Larkin's name being the first that comes to mind.

  • Zetterberg will meet with the back specialist that performed surgery on the venerable forward in 2014, Helene St. James of The Detroit Free Press reports. While it's been reported ad nauseam that Zetterberg will miss all of training camp and the start of the 2018-19 season, the captain's teammates in Detroit are still holding out hope that Big Z will be able to find solutions to his chronic back trouble.

  • Zetterberg (back) is unlikely to be on the ice for training camp, NHL.com reports. As of August 28, Zetterberg had been rehabbing, but not training because "the pain made it impossible." It looks doubtful the 37-year-old forward will be able to play Opening Night, given that he explained he "can't play NHL games without being well-prepared, especially not at my age." With that being said, Zetterberg is an extremely tough player who has logged full 82-game seasons the past three years, despite battling through the injury. Teammates remain hopeful their captain will be back this season.

  • Zetterberg (back) said he will miss training camp and the start of the regular season, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet.ca reports. "I have not been able to train and I can not play NHL matches without being well prepared, especially not at my age." This news comes just two days after coach Jeff Blashill said Zetterberg could miss the entire 2018-19 campaign. The 37-year-old finally spoke up about how ill prepared he would be to hop back on the ice without properly training this summer. Zetterberg's stat line hasn't dropped with age, however, as he didn't miss a game over the last three seasons and racked up 41 goals and 174 points in that span. During his absence, Dylan Larkin, Frans Nielsen and Andreas Athanasiou will center the top three lines, respectively.

  • Zetterberg (back) likely won't be ready for the regular season and could miss the entire 2018-19 season, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. It appears more likely by the day that the 37-year-old will miss the entire upcoming season. Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill also said that if Zetterberg is unable to suit up, Andreas Athanasiou will slot into the third-line center role behind Dylan Larkin and Frans Nielsen. Zetterberg's health situation is certainly something that will be closely monitored heading into training camp.
