Red Wings D Niklas Kronwall carried off ice on stretcher after being hit into boards

DENVER - Detroit defenceman Niklas Kronwall was carried off the ice on a stretcher after being rammed into the boards on Thursday night against the Colorado Avalanche.

Kronwall was trying to gather the puck in the corner early in the opening period when he was hit by Avalanche forward Cody McLeod. Kronwall's helmet flew off as he fell to the ice.

Several teammates gathered around Kronwall as the dependable defenceman was strapped to the stretcher. Kronwall tossed away one of his gloves.

McLeod received a 5-minute penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

Kronwall has one goal and five assists in seven games this season for the Red Wings.

Quote of the Day

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
