Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Expected to address knee trouble in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kronwall dealt with knee trouble in 2015-16, but he's expected to "get it taken care of" in the offseason, Ansar Khan of reports.

Kronwall had a knee scope in mid-January that sidelined him for 15 games, and the 35-year-old defenseman also missed three games in mid-March due to a knee sprain. Kronwall looked sluggish at times and ended with a team- and career-worst minus-21 rating last season. Assuming he receives the proper treatment in the offseason, it would be reasonable to expect a bounce-back season for Kronwall in 2016-17.

Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Registers assist in victory Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kronwall picked up a helper in a 3-2 win against Buffalo on Monday.

Kronwall has filled up the scoresheet since coming back from injury, notching four points in five games. His rating in that span is not great at minus-5, but at least he seems to be scoring more like the Kronwall of old.

Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Back in action against Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kronwall (knee) will suit up against Florida on Saturday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Kronwall returns after a three-game absence in which the Red Wings dropped a pair of contests. The veteran leader will be relied upon both on and off the ice to help Detroit maintain its hold of the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference. The defenseman is trudging through a goalless drought of eight outings, but has been able to tally three helpers over that span.

Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Hopeful for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niklas Kronwall (knee) is hopeful to play Saturday against the Panthers, Ansar Khan of reports.

Kronwall suffered a sprained knee in last Saturday's win over the Rangers. He was originally ruled out for up to three weeks, but it appears he has made a quick recovery and could be on the ice just week later. Look for an official decision to come closer to puck drop on Saturday evening.

Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Ruled out 1-to-3 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Kronwall's injury has been diagnosed as a sprained knee and will keep him out for 1-to-3 weeks, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

This is the second knee injury that Kronwall's suffered this season, though this time it was to the other knee. Kronwall's production has dipped below normal levels this season (three goals and 20 points in 53 games), but he will be missed dearly by the Red Wings as they fight to stay in the playoff picture. Expect Alexei Marchenko to step into the lineup in Kronwall's place for the time being.
