  • Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Expected to be healthy for training camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/25/16) Kronwall (knee) should be ready for the start of training camp despite withdrawing from the World Cup of Hockey on Wednesday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Kronwall's knee problems dates back to January, when he underwent a scope procedure and missed 15 consecutive games. The hard-hitting rearguard also tended to his knee in March, landed on injured reserve, and was sidelined for three more contests. Kronwall contributes modestly on both ends of the ice with his 2015-16 campaign including 26 points (three goals, 23 assists) and 81 blocked shots in 64 games. Fantasy owners must've hated the minus-21 rating that he posted in that same span, but the 35-year-old should be able to improve upon that rate once he's able to make a full recovery from the nagging knee injury.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Will not play at World Cup of Hockey

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8/24/16) Kronwall (knee) has been ruled out of the World Cup of Hockey and will be replaced by Hampus Lindholm, Stephen Whyno of AP Sports reports.

    Initial indications were that Kronwall would be healthy enough to participate in the World Cup after struggling with a knee injury for much of the season. The setback should be concerning for the organization and fantasy owners alike. The 35-year-old saw a significant drop in production last year, as he was able to tally just 26 points in 64 contests. With injury concerns and a dip in scoring, owners may want to consider looking at other defensive options.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Expected to address knee trouble in offseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/16) Kronwall dealt with knee trouble in 2015-16, but he's expected to "get it taken care of" in the offseason, Ansar Khan of MLive.com 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 following a knee sprain. Kronwall logged 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 CBSSports.com
    (3/29/16) 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, with four points in five games. His plus/minus is not great at minus-five in that span, but 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 CBSSports.com
    (3/19/16) Kronwall (knee) will suit up for 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 their hold of the final wildcard 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.
