-- As the NHL season skates along Red Wing superstar Henrik Zetterberg
continues to compile awards. His latest award came when he was named the ‘Hardest Working’ Player of the Month for October. He received his award from Carhartt sponsorship and event specialist Sanja Zarubica during a pre-game ceremony on November 9.
During the 2007-08 regular-season, Carhartt will present the monthly award to the hardest working Red Wings’ player, along with Carhartt merchandise. The award will recognize the player for his hard work and individual dedication to commitment necessary to excel on the ice.
The Red Wings’ coaching staff and front office personnel will select recipients.
Through the month of October, Zetterberg led the league in total points with 22 (10 goals, 12 assists), helping the Wings to an impressive 10-2-1 record. He recorded seven multiple-point games, including three-point efforts against Chicago (Oct. 6) and Los Angeles (Oct. 14).
Zetterberg, 27, continues to dominate into November. He set a new mark for points scored in consecutive games to start the season, surpassing hall of famer Norm Ullman, who held the previous mark of 14 straight games to start the 1960-61 campaign.
Zetterberg’s point streak currently stands at 17 games. He has scored at least a point in 24 straight games dating to last season. He was last held scoreless on February 8, 2007 at St. Louis.
