06:25 PM ET 01.07 | For only the third time since 1986, the Detroit Red Wings will be naming a new captain. It is expected that the organization will soon announce forward Henrik Zetterberg the 36th captain in the team's history. The move has been anticipated since Nicklas Lidstrom announced his retirement and it is only a matter of time until it becomes official. Zetterberg follows Lidstrom and Steve Yzerman wearing the "C" in Detroit. He has been an alternate captain since the 2006-2007 season.

Swampy's lover agrees.

The Datsyuk doesn't parlez vous well enough so it makes sense.

I like it, but it's the third quiet one in a row. They need a 'Brett Hull' type:)

By Brett Hull type, do you mean a brash North American forward with exceptional talent? The Wings don't have one of those on their roster.
