Hanging With Henrik Zetterberg

10/05/2018 at 10:37am EDT

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.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
