The Detroit Red Wings face the proposition of moving on without Nicklas Lidstrom, which forces the team to find a new captain – among other things.
Zetterberg told Hedger that he’d be “honored” if that ended up happening.
“We’ll see what happens the next few weeks,” Zetterberg said. “If they ask, I will be honored. It’s something that you always hope you’d have a chance to do in your career, especially with a team like this in a city like this, with the past and the ownership and the history we have.”
“I think he’d be a little more vocal than Nick,” Howard said. “Nick was vocal when he had to be, but Nick was a lot more cerebral as a captain and just did his job to perfection. (Zetterberg) is a more vocal and emotional kind of leader.”
