Henrik “Zäta" Zetterberg (born October 9, 1980) is a Swedish professional ice hockey center and alternate captain currently playing for the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League, wearing the "A" during away games when Kris Draper is healthy (alternating with Draper, who wears the "A" during home games). Along with winning the Stanley Cup in 2008, Zetterberg won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Zetterberg started out by playing his youth league games for the Njurunda Sports Club, as did Fredrik Modin. In the Swedish leagues, players were calling him Zetty the Grizzly Teddy, due to his facial hair. In 2008, the club renamed their arena—until then known as Njurunda Ishall—to Modin & Zetterberg-hallen in their honor.

Zetterberg caught the attention of the Red Wings' Assistant General Manager Jim Nill and Director of European Scouting Håkan Andersson during a tournament in Finland. While Andersson was trying to point out Mattias Weinhandl, Nill could not help noticing "this little Zetterberg guy who always seemed to have the puck."
