Bottom Line for Henrik Zetterberg

Zetterberg played all 15 years of his NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings after being drafted by them in the 1999 NHL Draft in the seventh round with the 210th overall pick. Zetterberg would win a Stanley Cup with Detroit in 2008, in which he took home the Conn Smythe award, which is awarded to the Most Valuable Player in the Stanley Cup Playoffs; in that run winning the Cup, Zetterberg played in all 22 games for the Red Wings recording 27 points (13 goals and 14 assists).

In the Red Wings cup run in 2009, when they lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Zetterberg recorded 24 points (11 goals and 13 assists) in 23 games. Zetterberg is fifth in Red Wings history in goals, assists, and points all time, trailing only Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman, Nicklas Lidstrom, and Alex Delvecchio in assists and points, and in goals he trails Howe, Yzerman, Delvecchio, and Sergei Fedorov.

Zetterberg was a ten-time all-star over the course of his career and took home a King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which is awarded for Leadership and Humanitarian Contribution. Zetterberg is a part of the IIHF Triple Gold Club winning a Stanley Cup, an Olympic Gold Medal, and a World Championship Gold Medal.

Zetterberg helped lead the Red Wings to the playoffs in the first 13 years of his career, but they failed to make it the last two seasons of his career as he decided to hang it up after the 2017-18 season. Zetterberg has been on the Hall of Fame ballot since 2022 and will look to next season as his chance to get inducted, as he will be on the ballot along with former teammate Pavel Datsyuk.
