By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments during the first half of the 2015-16 season. For the next few days By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. Here is a look at captain Henrik Zetterberg.


The captain is one of four skaters who have played in all 49 games this season. Justin Abdelkader, Gustav Nyquist and Riley Sheahan are the others. Should Zetterberg played in all 82 regular-season games it would be the first time he’s played in every game since 2011-12, the only time he’s appeared in every game during his 13 NHL seasons.


Tied with rookie Dylan Larkin for team lead in points. Zetterberg is eight points off his pace from last season when he produced 14 goals and 30 assists in 47 games leading into the All-Star break.


Ranking in power-play faceoff win percentage among NHL centers with at least 60 PP faceoff wins. The Wings’ captain has won 60-of-95 power-place faceoffs for a .571 winning percentage.


Leads the Red Wings in the number of primary assists. He also has nine secondary assists, which is third behind Pavel Datsyuk (11) and Mike Green (10). Zetterberg has led the Wings in primary assists in four of the past five seasons.


The number of power-play goals scored by the captain. Both goals came in Wings’ losses against Ottawa (Oct. 30) and against St. Louis (Jan. 20). He leads the team in 30 power-play shots.


Is 15 games shy of becoming the 11th player in Red Wings history to reach 900 career games played. Barring injury or illness, Zetterberg’s milestone game will be March 2 against the Chicago Blackhawks at Joe Louis Arena.
