My Captain my Captain it’s been a great 15 years! Hank has always been my guy and will forever be one of my all time favourite players. On the Red Wings' ALL-TIME list, Zetterberg finishes sixth in games played with 1,082, fifth in goals with 337, fifth in assists with 623, fifth in points with 960, fifth in game-winning goals with 64
It won't be long before the Wings raise No. 40 into the rafters!
Detroit Captain, Henrik Zetterberg has officially announced his retirement from hockey due to back injuries. The Detroit Captain, at 37 years of age, has scored 337 goals, recorded 623 assists and played a total of 1082 games (15 seasons) for the Red Wings. He helped lead them to becoming Stanley Cup Champions in 2002 and 2008. He also received the Conn Smythe award (Playoff MVP). Just a huge thanks to Henrik for being the player he was and the best of luck in the next chapter of his life. The NHL will 100% show a great farewell to this champion, leader and of course legend of the game. #zetterberg#zetterbergretires#detroit#detroitredwings#stanleycup#captain#connsmythe#NHL
The Hockey Hall of Fame certainly did not disappoint! The grand hall was quite majestic and the experience was even better with a certain team winning the cup a few months ago #ALLCAPS#stanleycup#connsmythe#princeofwales
29 Days until Puck Drop on another @nhl season. You may know @lakings coach Bill Ranford as the best goalie coach in the NHL. And that he has four cup rings. And a #connsmythe trophy and a Canada Cup and World Championship MVP. But I bet you didn’t know that he was the first player, alumni, management and coach we reached out to for insight and support when Pride Tape was just an idea on a piece of paper. We will always be incredibly grateful. Legend on and off the ice. Good luck Billy and the @lakings this year! I’m hoping for an emergency third goalie call up. Time to get back in there. :)
