    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Unlikely to be dealt

    Niklas Kronwall, who delivered a primary assist in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers, isn't on the trade block, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.Kronwall's signed three contracts exclusively with Detroit over parts of 15 seasons, with the Swede's name having become synonymous with jarring hits. The Wings ideally would be resting him on occasion, knowing he's been playing with a permanently damaged left knee, but a host of injuries to other defensemen in Motown have scrapped such plans. As a result, Kronwall has appeared in 57 of a possible 60 games in 2018-19; an undisclosed injury delayed his season debut, though he's been a lineup mainstay ever since. Don't expect the 38-year-old to be traded since Kronwall has expressed interest in staying put, and GM Ken Holland values the leadership that the veteran brings to the table.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Sets up man-advantage goal

    Niklas Kronwall registered a power-play assist in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.Kronwall was the primary distributor on rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski's third-period snipe, but it was too little, too late for the Wings at that point in the game. Jets goalie Laurent Brossoit would preserve the lead and avoid an upset against a team that Kronwall's been on for all 15 years of his NHL career.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Paces club with two-point effort

    Niklas Kronwall recorded a power-play goal and an assist to pace the Detroit Red Wings to a 4-1 road win over the Hurricanes on Thursday.Kronwall helped the Wings snap a four-game losing streak with his man-advantage rocket shot from the point that found the back of the net, as well as a secondary even-strength apple on a deflected goal courtesy of forward Frans Nielsen. Even at 37 years of age, Kronwall can still handle more than 18 minutes of ice time, but he hasn't been much of a factor on the power play since his latest goal counts as his first point in that key special teams situation this season -- for perspective, he had 15 points in that spot in 2017-18.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Not distracted by trade speculation

    Niklas Kronwall hadn't entertained the thought of potentially being moved to a contending team for another chance at the Stanley Cup -- at least until Craig Custance of The Athletic asked him about it Monday.Kronwall, 37, is cashing out the balance of a seven-year, $33.25 million contract. He's been with the Detroit Red Wings ever since they took him in the first round (29th overall) of the 2000 draft, and it would be strange to see him in any sweater other than the one with the Winged Wheel. Kronwall has three assists for his only points through 18 games this season, but with respect to his leadership qualities and status as a Stanley Cup winner (2008), the Swede still might appeal to certain clubs. There are only 10 teams eligible to acquire Kronwall in a trade, but it's entirely possible that he'll end up as a lifelong Wing.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Set for season debut

    Niklas 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.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Optimistic about return

    Niklas 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.
