Niklas Kronwall

Niklas Kronwall
A member of the Triple Gold Club (Olympic Gold, World Championship and Stanley Cup), Swedish Defenseman, Niklas Kronwall was a late first round pick for the Detroit Red Wings, and he has been providing solid blue line work for Hockeytown ever since.  Kronwall was a member of Detroit’s 2008 Stanley Cup win and Sweden’s 2006 Olympic Gold Medal.

Perhaps what we like best about him is that name has become a verb in that when he delivers a vicious back pedaling hit the opponent is “Kronwalled”.  That is Hall of Fame in itself.

The Bullet Points

  • Country of Origin: Stockholm, Sweden
  • Position: Defence
  • Played For: Detroit Red Wings
  • Non-NHL Teams: Sweden (Olympics, 2006, 2010 & 2012)
  • Major Accolades and Awards: Stanley Cup Rings (1) (Detroit Red Wings, 2008)
    Olympic Gold Medal (1) (Sweden, 2006)
