TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (WILX) -- The Detroit Red Wings General Manger, Ken Holland, announced on Friday, that Henrik Zetterberg is no longer healthy enough to play professional hockey.

Friday morning during training camp, the GM told the media that Zetterberg was being put on longterm injured reserve.

Zetterberg, Captain for the Red Wings, has been battling back injuries for the last couple of years. He's been with the Wings for 15 years.

He has a Stanley Cup with the team from 2008, and that's also the year he was named MVP for the playoffs.

Zetterberg, a fan favorite, will be missed by the hockey community, fans, and teammates.
