Henrik Zetterberg On What It Means Tying Ted Lindsay In Career Goals

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Henrik Zetterberg is proud to have his name alongside Ted Lindsay's on the Detroit Red Wings' career goal-scoring list.

Zetterberg appreciates all that Lindsay has done, not only as a Hall-of-Famer, but for future generations of players by spearheading efforts to create a union in the 1960s.

Zetterberg scored the deciding goal in the Red Wings' 3-1 victory Saturday over the Carolina Hurricanes at Little Caesars Arena.

It was his 335th goal, tying him for fifth place with Lindsay on the franchise's all-time list.

"It's a number that I've been looking at for a while and it's special to have with him," Zetterberg said. "He meant a lot for a lot of players, not just for this team but what he did with the PA and all that. We wouldn't be in this spot where we are now if it wasn't for him."


Game hightlights and Zetterberg post-game can be watched below...

If Erik Karlsson Is Traded

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

But if the Senators do trade Karlsson, he just may go from being despised to the most hated owner in the history of sports.

How’s Melnyk ever going to be able to go to the rink to watch his own team play without being verbally abused by every man, woman and child in attendance?

No, his best move would be to sell today.

That way he doesn’t diminish the product. That way he makes a half-billion dollars and rides off into the sunset.

That way a new owner steps in and puts an end to the insanity by promising Karlsson isn’t going anywhere.
