Kronwall (knee) missed Monday’s practice; will not play on Tuesday.

Kronwall (knee) will make his season debut on Friday.
Kronwall has missed the first 11 games of the season with a debilitating knee injury, but will make his debut tonight vs. the Jets. Kronwall used to be a solid fantasy defenseman, but his injury concerns and advancing age limit his potential in 2016-17.

The Red Wings have placed Niklas Kronwall (knee) on injured reserve.
Kronwall was not expected to be ready for the season opener, so his movement to IR was inevitable in order for them to keep a young defenseman up with the big club.

If he can’t go in Game No.1, look for Xavier Ouellet or Ryan Sproul to fill-in for him.

Kronwall has been suspended for Game 7 on Wednesday.
Kronwall has been suspended for what the NHL’s department of Player Safety deemed as a “charge” for his hit on Lightning forward Nikita Kucherov. Kronwall has no previous history of fine or suspension, so he has only been given one game and will be back for Game 1 in Montreal, should the Red Wings get by the Lightning tonight.
