Henrik Zetterberg was "humbled" by the Detroit Red Wings decision to be named the team's newest captain.
Zetterberg is replacing the retired Nicklas Lidstrom. "It's a very big responsibility to represent the Wings in everything we do," Zetterberg said. "When I read a quote from Stevie Y when he became a captain in '86, he said it made it a lot easier to have a locker room full of leaders. And, that's the same for me now. I'm lucky to have players like (Pavel) Datsyuk, (Niklas) Kronwall, (Dan) Cleary, (Todd) Bertuzzi, (Johan) Franzen, (Jimmy) Howard and all the guys standing over there in the locker room. We all lead this team by doing the right things every day on and off the ice."
