A very significant retirement took place as Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings has announced that he is done playing hockey. Zetterberg has a degenerative back condition that can not be cured by rest or surgery and he opted to end playing so that he increase his quality of life in his later years.

Playing his entire NHL career with the Detroit Red Wings, Zetterberg was a seventh round pick from Sweden who was not forecasted to have a career as successful as it was. The runner-up for the Calder Trophy in the 2002-03 season, Zetterberg would blossom into an excellent two way player who was a constant threat to win the Frank J. Selke Award as the best Defensive Forward. While that award escaped his trophy case he would be named a Second Team All Star in 2007-08, which has to be considered the best season of his career. Not only was he a Second Team All Star, he helped Detroit win the Stanley Cup and in the process he was named the Conn Smythe Trophy winner.

Internationally speaking, Zetterberg helped Sweden win both the 2006 Olympic and World Championship and after the 2008 Stanley Cup win he became a member of the “Triple Gold Club”.

He retires with 960 Points in 1,082 Games played in the NHL.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to wish Henrik Zetterberg the best in his post-playing career.
