DETROIT -- Red Wings forward and leading scorer Henrik Zetterberg will miss the final two games of the regular season with a lower body injury.
Zetterberg left during the first period of Wednesday's 3-0 loss to Carolina, limping off the ice after getting hit by Hurricanes defenseman Bryan Allen.
The team said Thursday that Zetterberg will be day-to-day beyond the regular season.
The Red Wings already clinched the Central Division and are the No. 3 seed in the Western Conference behind Vancouver and San Jose.
Zetterberg had 24 goals and 56 assists in 80 games for Detroit this season.
