Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Henrik Zetterberg of the Detroit Red Wings won the NHL's Foundation Award which recognizes a player for his charitable and community work.

Zetterberg, along with his wife Emma, founded the Zetterberg Foundation, which has helped communities in Detroit, Nepal, Ethiopia and Guatemala.

Also, he has been involved with Make-A-Wish, smoke detector collections, prep hockey scholarships and has consistently donated his time to other community outreach programs during the season and in the offseason.

He is the second Red Wings player to win the award, as Darren McCarty took it home in 2003.
