Zetterberg Weds Swedish Survivor Winner

The Detroit Red Wings currently have eight Swedish players on their roster — so when one of them gets married to a former winner of Sweden’s version of Survivor (Expedition: Robinsson), you know it’s gonna be one sweet Swedish superparty.  The lucky gentleman is 29-year-old left wing Henrik Zetterberg, who’s played his entire eight-year NHL career in Detroit.

“All of us meet with each other during the course of the season, but this will be another different circumstances, which are enormously fun,” says Swedish Red Wing defenseman Niklas Kronwall to Sweden’s Sportbladet.

Zetterberg’s bride is Emma Andersson, who appeared on two seasons of Swedish Survivor, winning the second time in 2003.  She won about $70,000 in Swedish money, of which the Swedish government took about $40,000 in Swedish taxes. She went on to model and host Swedish TV shows, and was voted #1 in Swedish “Café” Magazine’s “Sweden’s 69 Sexiest”-list of 2005.  She’s been dating Zetterberg for about three years, and in 2006 they appeared together on a 2006 episode of the Swedish home-improvement show Room Service.

Here’s a YouTube of her interviewing a poker player in English with Swedish subtitles:

The Swedish nuptials are Friday in Molle, Sweden, near Emma’s home.  The Swedish Chef will cater.  Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are said to be extremely jealous.

Other Swedish Red Wings on the guest list:

  • D Nicklas Lidstrom
  • D Jonathan Ericsson
  • LW Johan Franzen
  • D Andreas Lilja
  • LW Tomas Holmstrom
  • RW Mattias Ritola

Other hockey players:

  • C Pavel Datsyuk (Red Wings, Russia)
  • C Valtteri Filppula (Red Wings, Finland)
  • RW Mikael Samuelsson (Sweden, went to Vancouver Canucks last year after playing for the Red Wings from 2005-2009)
