Birthplace: Njurunda, Sweden
Drafted: DET / 1999 NHL Entry Draft
Round: 7th (210th overall)
Henrik Zetterberg was born October 9, 1980 in Njurunda, Sweden. The fourth choice, 210th overall selection of the Detroit Red Wings in the 1999 NHL draft, Zetterberg spent the last five years in Sweden with Timra IK and was named the Swedish Elite League Rookie of the Year in 2001.

A two-time member of Sweden's World Junior team (2000-2001), Zetterberg was a member of Sweden's 2002 Winter Olympic Team in Salt Lake City, Utah while making the 2002-03 NHL season his first professional season in North America.

The runner-up in Calder Trophy voting, Zetterberg led all NHL rookies scoring with 44 points (22-22-44) and was on his way to bettering his totals in sophomore season, before he suffered a broken leg. Although he played a mere 61 games, Zetterberg recorded 43 points (15-28-43).

During the NHL lockout, Zetterberg returned home to Sweden to play for Timra IK and led the Swedish Elite League in scoring. When the league returned to action in 2005-06, Zetterberg would set a career high in goals, assists, and points at the time. After yet another productive season in 2007-08 Zetterberg would record at least a point in each of the Red Wings first 17 games. He would go on to better his previous best point total that season and record 43 goals, 49 assists for 92 points. In the playoffs that year, the Red Wings would earn their fourth Stanley Cup in 11 years on the strength of Zetterberg's playoff-leading 27 points. The native of Njurunda, Sweden ranked first on the club in goals (13) and plus-minus (+16) and was a key component in the Red Wings' penalty-killing unit throughout the playoffs. Zetterberg also contributed the cup winning goal against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup finals. The victory made Zetterberg a member of the exclusive Triple Gold Club (Olympic Gold, Stanley Cup, World Championship Gold), along with teammates and fellow Swedes Mikael Samuelsson and Niklas Kronwall.

Aside from his World Junior and Olympic experience, Zetterberg is a three-time member of Sweden's World Championship team (2002, 2003 and 2005) and represented his homeland at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. In 2006, Zetterberg won his first gold medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin.
