  • Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Manages healthy, productive season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/18) Kronwall appeared in 79 games this season, notching four goals, 23 assists (15 power-play points) to complement 82 hits and 107 blocked shots.

    Considering Kronwall played through a permanently damaged left knee, this was a remarkable output for the 37-year-old defenseman. In fact, he achieved his highest point total in three years to possibly have helped some fantasy owners in deep leagues. Kronwall has one year left on his contract before he'd be eligible to hit the open as an unrestricted free agent, though we wouldn't be surprised if he retired at that point.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Scores for 400th career point

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/18) Kronwall recorded his 400th career point with a goal in Tuesday's 5-2 home win over the Penguins.

    Forever beloved by Red Wings fans for his glory days delivering bone-crushing hits, Kronwall doesn't do much of that anymore, but he is ranked fourth on the franchise's all-time scoring list among defensemen. The 37-year-old has been playing on a damaged left knee for years, but it appears that the team has scrapped plans to hold him out of the occasional contest for rest purposes, as he's played in 74 straight while averaging roughly 18:30 of ice time.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Registers goal, assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/3/18) Kronwall scored a power-play goal and added an assist in a 4-3 loss to the Jets on Friday.

    The 37-year-old Swede is seemingly on his last legs. He has only three goals and 16 assists through 61 games and he's only put 53 shots on goal. However, there is one place where Kronwall has still found relative success: he now has 12 power-play points.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Collects two assists in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/9/18) Kronwall recorded two assists -- one on the power play -- during Friday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Islanders.

    The veteran entered with just two goals, 11 assists and 41 shots through 49 games this season, so this was a bit of a surprising result. Kronwall's days of being a go-to fantasy asset are long gone, and no one should fret fading him moving forward.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Staying healthy this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/18) Kronwall, whose left knee is permanently damaged, has played in 37 consecutive games.

    The Red Wings will face the Lightning on Sunday and then have six straight days off for the league-mandated bye week. Kronwall's accepted the fact that there are no viable treatment options for his bothersome knee, though he even went as far as exploring stem cell treatment. He's posted two goals and eight assists with six of his points taking place on the man advantage this campaign. The Swede plays with a lot of heart and determination, and it's basically those traits alone enabling him to still average as much as 18 minutes of ice time per contest.
