Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall has a slight knee sprain and is expected to miss 1-3 weeks, general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com Sunday.
Kronwall was injured in a 3-2 win against the New York Rangers on Saturday. He was helped off the ice in the middle of the second period after getting his right leg stuck and twisted between Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek and New York right wing Jesper Fast during a goal-mouth scramble.
Kronwall missed 15 games in January and February because of arthroscopic knee surgery. He has three goals and 17 assists in 53 games this season.
The Red Wings host the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sunday (7:30 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN).
