A three time Olympian, Zetterberg will be looked upon to help lead Sweden back to the top of the podium. At the 2006 Olympics, he finished with six points (3-3-6), including a goal and an assist in the gold medal game.

In 2006, Zetterberg formed a line with Detroit teammates at the time, Mikael Samuelsson and Tomas Holmstrom. The line combined for five goals and nine assists at the tournament.

Zetterberg became a member of the elite Triple Gold Club after winning the Stanley Cup for the first time in 2008 with the Detroit Red Wings -- he also won a World Championship gold medal in 2006 following the Olympic gold.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
