nhl meme: 10 players → #5: henrik zetterberg - detroit red wings
After some really tough days in the Olympic village due to his back injury, Henrik Zetterberg went down to the rink and talked to his fellow Swedes after the quarterfinal victory against Slovenia. [x]
Henrik Zetterberg had back surgery. Could miss 8 weeks.
Not only was he forced to leave Sochi and fly home to the U.S. with his injured back previously, but he also got on the operating table as soon as he landed in New York and couldn’t continue.
"He sent a text and told me he’d be sedated during the entire game, but he wished us luck and said he wanted to wake up and see that we won. It feels good that we could give it to him," says his friend Niklas Kronwall. [x]
