Henrik Zetterberg is listed as questionable for tonight’s game after leaving today’s practice with a middle-body injury. According to Ansar Khan of Mlive.com, the versatile forward skated today but was unable to make it through a full practice due to what is believed to be an illness. Coach Mike Babcock disclosed that if Zetterberg could not play tonight, he would shift Valtteri Filppula to center and promote either Jiri Hudler or Fabian Brunnstrom to the second line.

Through his first 13 games of the season, the¬†Njurunda, Sweden native disappointed most fantasy hockey owners with thee goals and five points. Check back later as we hope to get an update prior to tonight’s warm-ups.
