According to Ansar Khan of Mlive.com, the Red Wings will soon announce that Henrik Zetterberg will become the new Red Wings captain replacing Nicklas Lidstrom who retired during this past offseason. Since the 2006-07 season, Zetterberg has served as an alternate captain and has during that time been groomed to take the reigns when his time came. It looks as though that time for Zetterberg to take the reigns has come. It’s expected that Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall will remain alternates with a third alternate still yet to be determined. Khan writes that only two players can wear the “A” during games, something the Wings have rotated in and out for several years now. Either way Zetterberg seemed like the obvious choice following Lidstrom’s retirement. h/t: Mlive.com

Zetterberg scores one-handed shootout goal

If the NHL makes its return this season, Red Wings forward Henrik Zetterberg looks to be in mid-season form. During a shootout against the SCL Tigers of the Swiss League, Zetterberg is seen here scoring with that one-handed move Red Wings fans have seen before. I wonder if they can get another advertisement on that jersey?

Datsyuk, Zetterberg primed for hockey

TROY, Mich. -- Don't be surprised if the Red Wings rely on Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk even more than usual when the season gets underway. That's not just because the Euro Twins, as they are sometimes known, are their best players. They are also among the players who are already in game shape from playing in Europe. Zetterberg has been playing for EV Zug in the...

Henrik Zetterberg new Red Wings Captain; Tomas Holmstrom to Retire

An amazing Datsyuk KHL shootout goal to get you ready for the NHL regular season

Yesterday you saw a Henrik Zetterberg one-handed shoot out goal for his Swiss League team EV Zug. Here we see another remarkable shoot-out goal, this time by his Red Wing teammate (I refuse to call them the Euro Twins… so lame) Pavel Datsyuk while playing for his KHL team CSKA Moscow. That goal ended up being the game winner as CSKA went on to beat Traktor 3-2. Datsyuk ended up...

All Coming Together

Not a whole lot of new news to report this morning. But we're gearing up for this short season that could start next week.  We could be watching Red Wings hockey in 7 days.  I know this has been painful.  I know that it has been frustrating.  But let's put our fan hats (made of tin foil) back on and think about not what we've lost...but what we are NOT losing...

Digging Monday

Aloha *******.  This post will evolve over the next little bit, but I wanted to give you this ditty to start with.  Khan(!)'s got himself a scoop and, in typical Digger fashion, attributes it to no one but his immense knowledge of the organ-I-zation. Ever since Nicklas Lidstrom announced his retirement on May 31, it was fairly obvious would who replace him as Detroit Red...
