  • Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Not ready to retire

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/11/17) Kronwall is 100 percent committed to playing next season, Brendan Savage of MLive.com reports.

    The 36-year-old blueliner had arguably his worst campaign since entering the league in 2005-06, tacking on a pair of goals with 11 helpers over 57 games. Recurring injuries -- namely to his knee -- can be blamed for the slide, as can the team's overall lack of experience on the blue line. Kronwall has two years left on his contract valued at $4.75 million annually before he'll be an unrestricted free agent.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Back in action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Kronwall (knee) will play Tuesday against Carolina after missing the team's last game due to mandated rest, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    With the Wings scheduled to play three games in as many days, the team opted to hold Kronwall out of Monday's contest as a cautionary measure. Once a go-to fantasy blueliner, Kronwall's decline has been abrupt. Having missed 26 games through injury, Kronwall has tallied just one goal and 11 assists in 50 games this season.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Officially out Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/17) Kronwall (knee) will miss Monday's game against the Hurricanes, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Kronwall is still dealing with some lingering knee issues and the indication was that he couldn't play three games in three days for the club. His absence from Monday's lineup against the Hurricanes opens the door for Dan Renouf to make his NHL debut Monday, while Kronwall should be ready to return Tuesday in a rematch between the two clubs. Robbie Russo will replace him on the power play Monday.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Likely to sit Monday or Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/17) Kronwall will likely not play one of the Red Wings' next two contests, as he cannot play three games in a row due to his previously injured knee, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    With the Red Wings in the peculiar position of having to play three games in as many days, Kronwall is slated take a rest for either Monday or Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes so as not to push his knee too hard. The veteran blueliner will take one of the days off and will likely be all-systems-go either way for Thursday's game in Tampa Bay.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Tallies helper on man advantage

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/17) Kronwall registered a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-1 home win over the Avalanche.

    The secondary helper counted as his second point in nine March games, but a bum knee and 12-plus years of hockey have really taken a toll on the 36-year-old defenseman. He was a plus player for the first half of his career but isn't nearly as mobile these days, leading to a minus-30 rating since the start of the 2015-16 campaign. This is pure speculation, but it wouldn't surprise us to see him get shut down soon now that the Red Wings are out of playoff contention.
