Zetterberg picks up 500th assist and 800th point in win over Sens


Henrik Zetterberg reached not one, but two milestones in Saturday’s 5-3 win over the Ottawa Senators.

His first assist on Tomas Tatar‘s power play goal was the 500th of his career.

His second period assist on Gustav Nyquist‘s goal was his 800th point.

Detroit never trailed in this game, as they led 1-0 after one and 3-1 after two. They got multi-point efforts from five players including Zetterberg, Tatar, Nyquist, Nicklas Kronwall and Danny DeKeyser.

The Wings’ Twitter account had a lot of reminding people that their captain reached two important milestones:

Senators center Kyle Turris reached a milestone of his own in the loss. His second period goal was the 100th of his NHL career.
