Henrik Zetterberg gets checked, finishes shift with advertisement stuck to jersey

After taking a hit along the boards on Tuesday night, Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg was left with a piece of the advertising from the boards stuck to his jersey. Zetterberg finished the shift as if nothing had happened, but his teammates surely got a kick out of it.

Chalk this up as one of the strangest things you’ll see all season. After taking a check from Edmonton Oilers winger Benoit Pouliot, Detroit Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg got a piece of an advertisement stuck to his jersey.

Of course, Zetterberg, ever the professional, finished the shift as if nothing was amiss and headed to the bench to have the advertisement removed. Thankfully, the entire thing was caught on video, so we get a chance to chuckle at the moment.

Hopefully this isn’t the route the NHL goes when it comes to ads on jerseys.

That said, maybe the Red Wings’ winger should get a piece of the boards stuck to him every game. With little more than 30 seconds left in the game and the score tied at two apiece with Detroit on the power play, Zetterberg made a beautiful cross-ice feed that would result in the game-winning goal for Pavel Datsyuk.

The Red Wings would go on to win 4-2, as Luke Glendening added an empty-net goal to seal the win.
