Kronwall provided a secondary assist in Tuesday's 5-3 road win over the Blue Jackets. An undisclosed issue delayed Kronwall's season debut until the fourth game, and he went seven straight games without recording a point before delivering helpers in the last two. The 37-year-old defenseman is likely to retire after this season.
Kronwall (undisclosed) will make his season debut Thursday evening against the Maple Leafs, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports. This was expected to be the case since the man himself said he'd be fit to play, but now there's confirmation on the matter. Kronwall managed to stay healthy last season, adding four goals and 23 assists. Long gone are his days of consistently delivering bell-ringing hits, but the Swede actually had 15 of his 27 points on the power play in 2017-18. Kronwall can still get it done in the attacking zone, making him a sneaky DFS play.
Kronwall (undisclosed) said he think he'll be fit to play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports. Kronwall missed the first three regular-season games, and the Wings really need the veteran blueliner in the lineup seeing as how the team is winless with four rookie d-men collectively trying to hold down the fort in his absence, as well as filling the void of the team's lone power-play quarterback in Mike Green (illness). It sounds like Kronwall will be good to go against the Buds by his own declaration, but risk-averse fantasy owners will want to see Kronwall take warmups before activating him.
Kronwall (undisclosed) will not suit up Sunday in Los Angeles or Monday in Anaheim, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. With Kronwall missing the next two contests, the earliest he can return will be next Thursday at home against the Maple Leafs. Detroit's blue line is currently riddled with injuries, but it appears the team is playing it safe with the 37-year-old Swede.
Kronwall (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup for Sunday's game against the Kings or Monday's game against the Ducks, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. It appears the plan is to ease Kronwall back into action, so he'll likely only suit up for one of Detroit's back-to-back contests in California, although the Red Wings have yet to identify which one that will be. Another update on the veteran blueliner's status should surface prior to puck drop Sunday evening.
