from Craig Custance of The Athletic,
He felt the puck in his hand and flipped it around a little bit. Dressed in a well-tailored navy suit and waiting just outside the Red Wings dressing room, this was all still a little bit weird for Henrik Zetterberg....
There are a few words with Foligno and a pat on the shoulder for the Blue Jackets captain.
“That’s a guy I looked up to, big time,” Foligno told The Athletic after the game. “I just said, ‘All the best to you,’ and wished him well in everything in the next chapter. It sucks to think that he’s done. He’s a guy I admired playing against and always looked forward to the challenge of playing against and someone I respected as a captain, a player and the way he played the game. He had the respect of the entire league and that’s hard to do. That says a lot about him.”
