Tomas Holmstrom wasn't sure what was going on at the end of practice recently when the doors to the Zamboni entrance opened while the players were still on the ice.

But suddenly, a loud noise was heard and Henrik Zetterberg rode in on a brand new snowmobile-complete with the number 96 on the side.

<

"I couldn't see what was going on," Holmstrom said. "Turn around and there's a snowmobile out there and then I started reading the sign. Nice. It's mine."

A sign on the front of the snowmobile let Holmstrom know the gift was for reaching
1,000 career games.

<

"For sure that was nice of the boys to do," Holmstrom said. "I got some nice teammates."

Teammates often give gifts in acknowledgement of major milestones. Holmstrom was actually supposed to get his right before the All-Star break-the day after the Montreal game-but he missed six games and so didn't hit it until this week.
