By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2014-15 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on captain Henrik Zetterberg.

“I felt good, had a good start,” Zetterberg said. “It was real exciting coming in after what I went through last year. Didn’t end the season the way I wanted to. The last month, month and a half or whatever of the season, I’m not happy about. Definitely not happy about the playoffs.

“I think we have good pieces here, we played good hockey during the course of the year. Obviously, we didn’t after that West Coast trip. We were a little sluggish for a bit but we found a way to get into the postseason. I think four of the seven games, we played good hockey, really good hockey, but they found a way to get it done and we didn’t.”


For the first time in three seasons, and the fourth in his 12-season career, he led the Wings in total points. He had a season-high five game points streak, helping lift the Red Wings to a 4-1-0 record against Ottawa (Nov. 24), Philadelphia (Nov. 26), New Jersey (Nov. 28), Vancouver (Nov. 30 and Florida (Dec. 2). Now ranks seventh all time in club history with 786 career points.


He was ranked No. 7 in the league in assists during the 2014-15 season, finishing in the top 10 for the second time in three years. Matched a career best with four assists in the Red Wings 4-1 win at Toronto (Oct. 17).


For just the second time in his career he led the team in power-play points producing four goals and 24 assists. He had two multiple PPP games, both resulting in wins over New Jersey (Nov. 28) and Buffalo (Jan. 18).


For the ninth time in his career he led the Red Wings in average shots on goal per game. Established a career best for shots in a game with 11 in a 4-3 loss to the Florida Panthers (Dec. 2). He only had three games where he failed to register a shot on net.


The amount of points he produced in 11 games against Pacific Division teams. It was the only division that he had more points than games played against. He collected four points against Calgary and Edmonton; two against Vancouver, Los Angeles and Arizona; one against Anaheim.


Points he had prior to the NHL All-Star Game in late January. He had 14 goals and 30 assists with a plus-5 rating in the first 47 games of the season. His production dipped after the break as he managed just three goals and 22 points with a minus-11 rating in the last 30 games of the regular season.
