Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg is angry over a non-interference call and is holding nothing back in his rant directed at officials.
Florida Panther’s Jonathan Huberdeau’s late game-winner was confirmed following a review leaving Zetterberg, along with many others, confused about how the call held up.
“The inconsistency in this league right now, if it’s the refs or it’s the (review team) in Toronto or if it’s the suspensions or if it’s the fines, it’s hard for us as players to know what rules we are playing under,” Zetterberg said, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.
“You see it over and over again,” Zetterberg remarked. “Losing a game like this that is really important, the points are really important, on a call that yesterday could have been goalie interference and tonight it’s not. Probably tomorrow that will be goalie interference again. That’s what’s frustrating for us. They have to find a way to deal with this.”
Red Wings’ Mike Green Out a Month Due to Virus
Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green will be out for a month as he deals with a virus, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.
Green, who a two-year, $10.75-million extension with Detroit this offseason, missed the final nine games of last season doe to a neck injury and underwent cervical spine surgery at the conclusion of the NHL season, so the latest bump in the road has to be frustrating.
The virus has kept Green off the ice and out of action for the entire preseason.
Red Wings’ Jeff Blashill Has Doubts that Henrik Zetterberg will Return this Season
Detroit Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill has his doubts when it comes to the potential of Henrik Zetterberg suiting up this season, uncertain that the 37-year old will be healthy enough to do so and admitting that his status is currently in the air.
“He’s had a hard summer and I don’t think his back is reacting great,” Red Wings’ head coach Jeff Blashill said earlier this week, according to Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News. “Certainly we’ll know more in a month (at training camp), but as of today, there’s a lot of doubt as to whether his back will be healthy enough to play.”
Zetterberg did play in all 82 games for Detroit last season, but it was a tough task to enable he could do so.
“As you know, Hank wasn’t able to practice for half the year,” Blashill said. “He was able to gut it out through those last two months where he wasn’t able to practice. There were nights I didn’t think he’d able to play and he did play.”
