  • Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Collects helper in win over Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/17) Kronwall recorded an assist, three shots and a plus-2 rating through 19:56 of ice time (4:50 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 5-1 win over Winnipeg.

    While Tuesday's power-play minutes are encouraging, there hasn't been consistent enough offense from the veteran defenseman to make him a viable fantasy asset in the majority of settings. Kronwall has just two goals, eight points and 28 shots through 25 games, after all. Additionally, he's not helping out enough in the peripheral categories with only 10 PIM, 20 hits and 25 blocked shots.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Garners helper in home loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Kronwall delivered a primary assist in Saturday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.

    This one certainly made the highlight reel, as the Swede faked a shot and threaded the puck through heavy traffic for an Andreas Athanasiou tally. Still, Kronwall, who missed the first three games of the season due to a groin injury, has compiled only three points (all assists) through 15 games. As a result, you're likely to find him on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Discloses exploration of stem cell treatment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/22/17) Kronwall revealed that he tried stem cell therapy on his damaged left knee, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    The Swede's knee is reportedly damaged to the point that surgery won't lessen the pain, so he's sought out other medical avenues to be able to tolerate the bum knee and continue his playing career. "Once you get bone-on-bone, at least all the research that is out there, it seems there is not too many things that you can do without having to jeopardize your career," Kronwall said. "So you find a way through it." The 36-year-old has played in 800 career contests (76 goals, 303 assists) and despite his experiencing devastating knee/leg injuries of the years, he's still logging close to 19 minutes per game this season. This is a microcosm of Kronwall's toughness, perseverance and dedication to the game of hockey.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Set for season debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/12/17) Kronwall (groin) will make his season debut Thursday night against the Coyotes in Arizona, NHL.com reports.

    This is good timing for the Red Wings, as Danny DeKeyser suffered a lower-body injury in the latest contest and is expected to be scratched for the upcoming clash with the 'Yotes. Kronwall had back-to-back seasons of 44-plus points between 2013-15, but he's suffered a litany of injuries since then and that's sapped his production a great deal. By no means is he a must-add in the fantasy realm.

    Red Wings' Niklas Kronwall: Expected to return this week

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/17) Kronwall (groin) is looking to make his regular-season debut against Arizona on Thursday or Vegas on Friday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Kronwall originally sustained the groin injury on Sept. 30, and it appears he's just about ready to take the ice for the first time this season. After suffering knee injuries that limited him to 57 and 64 games the last two seasons, Detroit is likely making sure the 36-year-old is fully healthy before bringing him back. When he returns, Kronwall look look to bounce back from last season's career-low 13 points.
