And yet he kept playing at a high level. Nice tribute. Agreed Geoff Ginnard, we have enjoyed some outstanding players and men wearing the C on their jersey. Not sure who they will pick, Thanks for the memories Henrik Zetterberg I know the fancy pick will be Dylan Larkin but I don’t really see that being the right choice. We will see what happens. Interesting choice ahead for Blashell.
Hot Thanks for the memories Henrik Zetterberg items!
Today my favourite hockey player has officially tied up his skates for good. He played the final few seasons of his career after replacing two herniated discs in his back, and I should mention did not miss a single game. Ultimately this back ailment has forced him to call it quits. He was one of the classiest people on and off the ice, contributing to local hospitals and charities through The Zetterberg Foundation with his wife Emma. I first became a fan during the 2007-2008 season where he outplayed Sidney Crosby Thanks for the memories Henrik Zetterberg shift for shift in the Stanley Cup finals, robbing the young star of ultimate glory and etching his name into history with the Conn Smythe and the Championship. This was the moment he became my favourite Red Wing and one of my favourite players of all time. He never hogged the headlines or glory like some of the other athletes of today, but to me he will always be a superstar in his own right. Thank you for the memories Z!
Get it now and pray!
As a diehard Avalanche fan, hating the Red Wings is in our DNA, but you can still appreciate the talent, drive and class of such an incredible player. Stick tap to you Sir on an excellent career Zetterberg brought the complete package – skill, talent, heart and class. He will not easily be replaced. Howe – Yzerman – Lidstrom and Zetterberg were all great leaders and now we look forward to the next one to continue in the awesome tradition of great Red Wing captains!
How fortunate we were to have Z wearing the Winged Wheel? I wish Z and his family well and thank them for everything they did with their foundation. Class act all around. Take a lesson, Crosby! I remember seeing him at the taste of hockey town 5-6 years ago. He was the only player sitting and drinking a beer and he seemed stand-off Ish. I didn’t realize until later it was probably because he was hiding that he had a back injury (he later had surgery that season). Z got checked as dirty as holmstrom did and still gave us everything he had. It was great watching him play for winged wheel
