Kronwall evolves into Sweden's leader on blue line

Sunday, 02.02.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 Olympics

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Swedish defenseman Niklas Kronwall was working out with the Motor City Mechanics of the United Hockey League during the early part of the NHL's Olympic break eight years ago.

Lavish it wasn't, but Kronwall, then 25, only recently had returned from knee surgery and didn't think taking a vacation while more than 100 players went to play in the 2006 Turin Olympics.

He was right.

"I kept skating with them and out of the blue I get a phone call that says, 'Hey, they might need a body out there,'" Kronwall, now 33 and an alternate captain with the Detroit Red Wings, told NHL.com. "The next day I was on a flight [to Turin]. One day I was watching it on TV and the next day I was right in there. Everything just happened so quickly. [Mattias] Ohlund went down and all of a sudden I was playing in the gold-medal game."

Daily Primer Feb. 1: Reunion in Los Angeles

Saturday, 02.01.2014 / 3:00 AM / Features

The Philadelphia Flyers haven't been to Los Angeles in more than three years. They'll find some familiar faces when they take the ice at Staples Center on Saturday afternoon (4 p.m. ET; NHLN-US).

Two players who were keys to the Flyers' run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2010, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, will face their former teammates in L.A. for the first time. Both were Flyers when Philadelphia came to Los Angeles on Dec. 30, 2010. The Kings got Richards from the Flyers in the summer of 2011 and obtained Carter from the Columbus Blue Jackets in February 2012, a few months after the Flyers traded him. The forwards were part of the Stanley Cup-winning team in the spring of '12.

Richards and Carter aren’t the only Kings who have connections to Philadelphia: Assistant coach John Stevens played and coached the Flyers. Philadelphia also has plenty of L.A. connections: Wayne Simmonds and Brayden Schenn came from the Kings in the trade for Richards, assistant general manager Ron Hextall held the same job with the Kings, and assistant coach Ian Laperriere spent most of his career with the Kings before finishing with the Flyers as a teammate of Carter and Richards.

Here's a look at all of the Saturday action:

Tapped In: Sharp embraces life in Windy City

Saturday, 02.01.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

He may be considered one of Chicago's sexiest athletes as voted by publications on multiple occasions, but Patrick Sharp is all about hockey. The father of two baby girls, Sharp has two Stanley Cups, will represent Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and serves as a radio host. Yet, somehow the Chicago Blackhawks star still has time to give back to the community where he grew up. There's not much Sharp hasn't accomplished.

Kathryn Tappan: What is the best part about playing hockey in Chicago?

Patrick Sharp: The fans. The city is great, there's so much to do. But the way the fans respond to the players, especially for guys like Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and I that were here in 2005 when things weren't so good in Chicago. We really appreciate how the fans take care of us now.

KT: Two Stanley Cups for you in that city. Do you ever pinch yourself with what you've already accomplished in your career?

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
