Wings' Zetterberg: Healthy Heading Into Camp

News: Coach Mike Babcock relayed that Henrik Zetterberg (foot) said he was "feeling the best he has in years" this offseason, suggesting he'll be a full participant in training camp, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: With both Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk missing 37 games apiece last season, the Red Wings were forced to get by with a patchwork forward ranks to so-so results. Now that both players are feeling healthy, the depth chart should enjoy more stability in 2014-15, but don't be surprised if Zetterberg notices a drop in ice time for maintenance purposes as he enters his age-34 season. Still, Zetterberg hasn't had many health issues prior to last season, and managed to supply 48 points over the 45 contests in which he suited up. There's plenty of value to be had in Zetterberg, even as he takes on a more deferential role to emerging wings Gustav Nyquist and Tomas Tatar in the years to come.

Wings' Zetterberg Dealing With Foot Weakness

News: Henrik Zetterberg is dealing with some weakness in his left foot, the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg's foot is apparently feeling a little weak due to undergoing surgery for a herniated disc in his back, but he's confident he'll be back to normal in time for training camp in the fall. Zetterberg was stellar when healthy, posting 48 points in 45 games during the regular season, and a goal and an assist in two playoff games.

Zetterberg Scores In Detroit Loss

News: Henrik Zetterberg factored into both of Detroit's goals in Saturday's Game 5, series-ending 4-2 loss to Boston in the Atlantic Division semifinals, scoring one and assisting on the other.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg returned from his back injury in the Game 4 loss and made a strong effort late in the game to keep Detroit's season alive. Zetterberg's season will mostly be remembered for the time he missed after attempting to play in the Olympics for his native Sweden, but the injury masks a 48-point season in just 45 games for the veteran.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Returns Thursday

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) will play in Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg will make his long-anticipated return from a two-month-plus absence in hopes of reviving Detroit's offense in Game 4. While the winger is expected to see limited action, he should provide a jolt to the Red Wings and their fan base.

Red Wings' Zetterberg: Game-Time Decision

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) has been activated from injured reserve, but is officially listed as a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: All indications are that Henrik Zetterberg will return to the lineup after he was a full participant in morning skate, during which he took part in rushes with the top line. He'll visit a doctor for further evaluation on his back injury, but it may just be a formality in order to get the final go-ahead to suit up Thursday.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Back In Thursday

News: Updating a previous report, Henrik Zetterberg (back) has been activated from injured reserve and looks like he'll be in the lineup for Thursday's Game 4 against the Bruins, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg was a full participant in morning skate, manning a spot on the top line alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Justin Abdelkader. Though he'll likely receive only limited minutes after sitting out the last two months of action, his return should motivate a Red Wings squad that is in desperate need of some offensive firepower.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Reportedly Cleared To Play

News: According to a source close to the Red Wings, Henrik Zetterberg (back) has received clearance to play in Thursday's Game 4, Ken Campbell of The Hockey News reports.
Analysis: The source of the report indicated that Henrik Zetterberg would likely play only "limited minutes," after missing the Red Wings' last 30 games due to the back injury. Even if Zetterberg only skates 10 to 12 minutes, his return would provide a big boost to a struggling Detroit offense that has been stymied the last two games by Boston's physical defense and the work of Tuukka Rask in the net.

Henrik Zetterberg

Wings' Zetterberg Could Return Thursday

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) could play in Thursday's Game 4.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg hasn't suited up since February 8 due to the back injury, but took part in drills at Wednesday's practice, and could be in the lineup Thursday if his appointment with team doctors goes well. The star center would provide a much needed boost to the Red Wings offense, which has only managed two total goals in the first three games against the Bruins.

Wings' Zetterberg Still Sidelined

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) plans to practice Thursday.
Analysis: At this stage, Henrik Zetterberg acknowledged Tuesday that he is targeting a return to action in the second round of the NHL playoffs, though we suppose it's within the realm of possibility that he could present a more optimistic estimate if Thursday's practice goes well.

Wings' Zetterberg Still Sidelined

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) won't play in the first two games of the Red Wings' upcoming playoff series against the Bruins, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Moreover, while the report indicates that Henrik Zetterberg is slated to participate in the first part of the team's practice on Tuesday, he still isn't likely to be available to suit up until the second round of the playoffs (should Detroit advance that far).

Wings' Zetterberg Doubtful For Start Of Playoffs

News: GM Ken Holland said that Henrik Zetterberg likely wouldn't be ready for at least the early games of the team's first playoff series, Chuck Pleiness of the Macomb Daily reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg has resumed skating on his own this week, but he still looks to be relatively far away from practicing. Holland said Zetterberg was given about an eight-week recovery timetable after undergoing surgery Feb. 21 to remove part of a disc in his back, with Thursday representing the seven-week current.

Red Wings' Zetterberg To Resume Skating Next Week

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) is expected to resume skating next week, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg has been kept off the ice since undergoing back surgery Feb. 21, but he is getting close to skating again. Zetterberg will not play again during the regular season, but he could return sometime during the first round of the playoffs if the Red Wings reach the postseason.

Wings' Zetterberg Eyeing Playoff Return

News: Henrik Zetterberg (back) still plans on returning this season, but the Red Wings will need to make the playoffs for that to happen, Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse reports.
Analysis: The recommended eight-week recovery period from Henrik Zetterberg's back surgery would put him out until April 18, which would likely be sometime during the team's first round playoff series. The team currently sits in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, tied with four other teams with 80 points. If they can't squeeze into the playoffs at the end of the regular season, it doesn't seem likely that we'll see Zetterberg in uniform again until next season.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Undergoes Back Surgery

News: Henrik Zetterberg underwent surgery Friday to remove part of a disc in his back, and the Red Wings are optimistic that he will be able to play again this season, MLive.com reports.
Analysis: Red Wings Assistant GM Ryan Martin said the procedure went "very, very well," but Henrik Zetterberg will still need about eight weeks to recover. While he will have a chance to return during the playoffs (if the Red Wings qualify), or just before, fantasy owners should not expect to get much, if any, use out of Zetterberg the rest of the way.

Red Wings' Zetterberg To Be Evaluated Thursday

News: Henrik Zetterberg will fly back to Detroit on Thursday to have his back examined, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: At this point, Henrik Zetterberg has only been ruled out indefinitely with a herniated disc, but Thursday's appointment with doctors should provide a clearer recovery timetable for the winger. Sweden's team doctor previously acknowledged that Zetterberg could miss the rest of the season, but fantasy owners are advised to wait and see what Detroit's doctors have to say before making any major roster decisions.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Could Miss Rest Of Season

News: Swedish team doctor Bjorn Waldeback acknowledged there's a possibility that Henrik Zetterberg (back) could miss the rest of the season, Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg was ruled out for the rest of the Olympics on Friday, but Red Wings officials have yet to confirm how much time he'll miss with the injury or if he'll be ready to go when NHL play resumes. That being said, Zetterberg has been bothered by chronic back issues since at least 2008, and it appears the latest flare-up of his herniated disc is particularly problematic. Fantasy owners will want to hold steady with Zetterberg until more information about his injury is made available once he's examined in Detroit, but it wouldn't hurt to brainstorm contingency plans in preparation for a long-term absence.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Out For Olympics

News: Henrik Zetterberg (herniated disk) is out for the Olympics and will return to Detroit over the weekend to see a specialist, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: This injury appears worse than the back issues Henrik Zetterberg struggled with earlier in the year and it doesn't look like he'll be back in time to play for the Red Wings out of the Olympic break. GM Ken Holland said there is no timetable for his return, so he will be out awhile.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Could Be Out For Olympics

News: Swedish media reports have circulated suggesting that Henrik Zetterberg (back) will miss the rest of the 2014 Winter Olympics, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.
Analysis: We'll wait for confirmation from the Swedish team before officially ruling him as out, but things certainly don't sound good for Henrik Zetterberg. A herniated disk prevented Zetterberg from practicing Thursday and required anti-inflammatory treatment. Expect an update on his condition when Sweden plays their next game Friday against Switzerland. He's listed as day-to-day and questionable for the game for the time being.

Wings' Zetterberg Has Sore Back

News: Henrik Zetterberg did not practice with the Swedish Olympic team Thursday due to a herniated disk in his back, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: The report adds that Henrik Zetterberg is considered day-to-day and could potentially play against Switzerland on Friday. "We will [make the] decision [Friday] and see how he feels and how he adjusts to anti-inflammatory treatment and rest," Sweden's team doctor Bjorn Waldenberg noted Thursday. That said, it's plausible that Zetterberg -- who has missed 13 NHL games this season due to back woes -- could be rested by Sweden on Friday, with an eye toward keeping him healthy and available as the Olympic tournament progresses.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Picks Up Three Assists

News: Henrik Zetterberg supplied three assists in Sunday's loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg did all his damage late in the game, assisting on Gustav Nyquist's power-play goal with a minute left in the second period before finding Nyquist and Justin Abdelkader for game-tying scores in the third. Now two games removed from an upper-body injury, Zetterberg looks to be safe to deploy as usual for fantasy owners.

Red Wings' Zetterberg To Play Friday

News: Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) will play in Friday's game against the Capitals, Craig Custance of ESPN The Magazine reports.
Analysis: Henrik Zetterberg missed the Red Wings' last two games with the injury, but it appears that will be the extent of his absence. Zetterberg tallied eight points in the last four games he appeared in, so fantasy owners will be hoping the time off does not slow him down.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Probable For Friday

News: Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) is considered probable for Friday's game vs. the Capitals, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Babcock appeared optimistic about the Henrik Zetterberg's chances of playing after he was able to practice without much restriction Thursday. Given the vast amount of injuries and subsequent setbacks several of the team's forwards have suffered this season, even a "probable" tag is no guarantee Zetterberg will be available Friday. Fantasy owners are best served waiting to see if he does in fact check out fine at Friday's morning skate before setting their lineups.

Red Wings' Zetterberg Returns To Practice

News: Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) returned to practice Thursday, MLive.com's Ansar Khan reports.
Analysis: The upper-body injury has cost Henrik Zetterberg the past two games, but it looks like a return to action Friday against the Capitals hasn't been ruled out. He'll probably be evaluated during pregame warmups before a decision on his status is rendered.

Red Wings' Zetterberg To Miss Another

News: Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) will not travel with the team to Philadelphia for Tuesday's game, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Analysis: Though the Red Wings were starting to get some forwards back from injured reserve over the past couple of weeks, Henrik Zetterberg's ailment now gives the team something to fret about once again. Zetterberg also sat out Sunday's game and has yet to take the ice since Friday's win over the Canadiens. He had eight points over his last four games before suffering the injury.

Wings' Zetterberg Out Sunday

News: Henrik Zetterberg (upper body) will not play Sunday against the Panthers, Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News reports.
Analysis: The 33-year-old has been on a tear of late, with eight points (two goals, six assists) in his last four games, but he'll be forced to sit Sunday with the upper-body injury. Details are scarce, but the team lists Henrik Zetterberg as day-to-day. Dan Cleary, who was expected to be a healthy scratch, will slot in against Florida with Zetterberg ruled out.
