Henrik Zetterberg’s health ‘a bit of an unknown — Red Wings GM

Red Wings re-sign Larkin to 5-year contract

Red Wings head coach Jeff Blashill was noncommittal when asked last month whether the centre would be back with the team.

The Detroit Red Wings have re-signed restricted free-agent center Dylan Larkin to a five-year contract, the team announced Friday. "He just played in games". Zetterberg's back problems have been well document since 2014 when he missed the end of the season after undergoing surgery.

To make matters worse, Zetterberg hasn't been able to get his body right in the offseason.

"I know he's had a tough summer", said Holland. He hasn't been able to train anywhere near where at past summers.

"So I think he is in the process of deliberating to see, where is his back at?" That caveat, it appears, has come into play.

"I know that he's played through a lot of pain through his career", Larkin said Friday. He ground it out because he is the ultimate warrior, one of the best I have ever been around, and was able to still be a real good player.

"It would definitely hurt losing him, but he does have to look after his future".

Zetterberg, 37, is under contract with the Red Wings until 2021. His salary falls to $3.5 million in 2018-19 and to $1 million each of the two seasons after that.

It's unclear if Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg will be ready to play this upcoming season.

He will turn 38 in October.

Red Wings training camp starts September 14. But their situation won't become totally clear until Zetterberg is factored into - or out of - the equation.

"For me it's going to be the same as I've been doing the last couple of years", Zetterberg said. It's a workable number. "I want to have more information, and then I'll deal with it in September".

Zetterberg has played 1,082 games for Detroit, scoring 337 goals and 623 assists.
