Back injury ending Henrik Zetterberg's Red Wings career

Back injury ending Henrik Zetterberg's Red Wings career
Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg's back injury is ending his hockey career, general manager Ken Holland told reporters Friday. Zetterberg, 37, had been holding out hope that he would be able to play again. Last month, he described a deteriorating condition that included nerve pain in his legs and disk-related issues. Holland said Zetterberg will be placed on long-term injured reserve. Zetterberg had played in all 82 games over each of the past three seasons. He had 11 goals and 45 assists in 2017-18 as the Red Wings missed the playoffs for the second straight year. The two-time All-Star took home the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2008 as Detroit won the Stanley Cup. In 2015, he was honored with the King Clancy Memorial Trophy, which recognizes a player's leadership and humanitarian efforts.
