Zetterberg last played for the Red Wings on Feb. 8. He played one game for Sweden in the 2014 Sochi Olympics before leaving the tournament because of a back injury. He had surgery to repair a herniated disc on Feb. 21.

Zetterberg started the game on a line with Pavel Datsyuk and Justin Abdelkader. He skated with them in the morning skate before leaving the arena to visit with the team doctors, presumably to go through the testing protocol so he could be cleared to play.

He had 48 points in 45 regular-season games, and has 114 points in 123 career games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
