On Friday, in a southern Swedish town of Molle, Henrik Zetterberg will marry his girlfriend of three years, Emma Andersson. This heartbreaking news for the swooning Zetterberg fans was brought to my attention by George Malik of MLIVE, who also provides a rough (sometimes hilarious) translation of the announcement from Aftonbladet:â†µ
The ceremony takes place in Mölle is for the simple reason that it is close to Emma Andersson's home. The exclusive wedding will be held at the Grand Hotel in Mölle and is expected to be the most luxurious kind.â†µ
And the guest list is packed with celebrities' names. Among others, all of Detroit's Swedes--Nicklas Lidstrom, Niklas Kronwall, Jonathan Ericsson, Johan Franzen, Andreas Lilja, Tomas Holmstrom and Mattias Ritola--will attend the wedding in Skane [southern Sweden], together with teammates Pavel Datsyuk and Valtteri Filppula.â†µ
For three days, the couple will celebrate with pomp and circumstance, and the festivities begin tonight with a dinner.â†µ
As someone who just entered the gates of marital bliss, I know it's going to be a day Zetterberg certainly won't forget. It's also a great way to kick off the trek to another Stanley Cup. Congratulations, Hank.
