The Hockey News Player of the Week for the period of November 9-15 is Detroit Red Wings center Henrik Zetterberg.

In three games on the week, ‘Hank’ tallied four goals and nine points in wins over Columbus, Vancouver and Anaheim.

First, in a 9-1 game where his team asserted itself over divisional rival Columbus, Zetterberg managed two assists and a plus-2 rating with a relatively low 16:11 of playing time. The next night at home Zetterberg added two more points, one of which was the game-winning goal, in 19:24 of ice time.

Saving his best effort for last, Zetterberg accumulated a hat trick and five points in a 7-4 win over Anaheim Saturday, including seven shots on goal, another game-winning goal and 22:47 of ice time.

With eight goals and 22 points in 18 games so far this season, Zetterberg is tied for 13th in league scoring with Nicklas Backstrom, Ryan Getzlaf and Zach Parise.

The Red Wings have won six of their past seven games and sit second in their division, three points behind Chicago, with a 10-5-3 record.
