"I'm all right. Good to play, that's all that matters..It was more just a jolt, kind of knocked the wind out of me... I was a little dazed for a bit, no big issues."
- Kent Huskins

"We'll have seven D ready, I'll make a decision on what the six are at warmup."
- Mike Babcock

After Henrik Zetterberg's incredible performance last night, The Great One had some very high praise for the new Captain...

.
 
Gretsky
"I think Zetterberg is the best player in the game (at his age)...I think he’s the best Swedish player they’ve ever put into the National Hockey League"
- Wayne Gretzky

“We get to watch Henrik every day. I know that Lidstrom is special and Datsyuk is special, but when you see these players every day I think sometimes people don’t always appreciate how special they are."
- Ken Holland

Zetterberg

"I didn’t believe (Gretzky's comments) at first...I had to go to Goggle to make sure no one was pulling a prank on me. But it is nice. He’s one of my first big idols...it’s a great honor."
- Henrik Zetterberg
