Michigan First Credit Union Morning Skate Update

Henrik Zetterberg
Henrik Zetterberg will return to the Wings lineup tonight after missing several weeks with a back injury.

"I haven’t done much lately. It’s only one goal on this team and that’s playing in the middle June and raise that Cup. Whatever you do until that is … as long as you get into the postseason and we’re healthy and we play good – that’s our goal."
- Henrik Zetterberg

"It’s already been two weeks, but I’m looking forward to getting back and I feel ready to go. Hopefully I can help the team."

Darren Helm
Darren Helm is doubtful due to a shoulder injury.

"I just want to play. It’s painful...I’m skating, I’m shooting, doing a lot of good things. There’s a couple things I don’t know if I can handle, the hard physical grind of an NHL game...but it’s close,
right around the corner, it’s coming."

Johan Franzen
Johan Franzen hasn't skated yet because of concussion-like symptoms.

"I still get dizzy and headaches. It’s motion triggered. I can get through workouts fine, but if I try and play keep away I can’t do that. If there’s too much going on I get dizzy, my vision gets blurry and stuff like that."
