By The Numbers highlights the Detroit Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2009-10 season. Each week, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on center Henrik Zetterberg.
A single game career-high in points. Zetterberg tallied three goals and two assists in the Wings’ 7-4 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Nov. 14.
The difference in the number of shots on goal from the team-leader and the No. 2 guy in the category. Zetterberg’s 309 shots was tops with Todd Bertuzzi (216) finishing second. It was also the third straight year that Zetterberg finished with 300-plus SOG.
Career goal scored on March 3. Zetterberg’s second-period goal tied the game – eventually won by the Canucks, 6-2 – at 2-2.
Number of hat tricks in the regular-season. Zetterberg scored three goals in a pair of Wings’ 7-4 win against the Anaheim Ducks (Nov. 14) and the Phoenix Coyotes (April 16).
Career game played on March 30 against the Edmonton Oilers. Zetterberg assisted on Andreas Lilja’s first-period goal in the Wings’ 5-4 win at Joe Louis Arena.
The number of games missed due to a shoulder injury. Zetterberg suffered the injury on Dec. 17 when Tampa Bay’s Mattias Ohlund delivered an open-ice check in the first period of the Wings’ 3-0 win.
