  • Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Not distracted by trade speculation

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/22/18) 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 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: Finding offensive rhythm

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/31/18) 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.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Set for season debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/18) 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

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/10/18) 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.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Ruled out for next two games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) 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.
