Kronwall Progressing

via Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Defenseman Niklas Kronwall was feeling much chipper Tuesday morning after skating with the team for the first time since suffering a sprained left MCL on Nov. 21.

“Had a good day skating (Monday) and today it felt even better,’’ Kronwall said. “Hopefully, I’ll come in tomorrow morning and it will still feel really good. It definitely feels like we’re onto something.’’

He didn’t want to estimate when he might return.

“I don’t want to say too much, then I have the doctors and trainers all over me,’’ Kronwall said. “If I can just keep progressing like this it’s just a matter of getting the legs back and we’ll go from there.’’

Said Babcock: “As soon as you start feeling better and it looks like you’re turning the corner, it’s pretty easy to get energized. When it’s not, it sucks the life out of you.’’

Niklas Kronwall remains roughly a week to 10 days away, according to GM Ken Holland. Johan Franzen should be back just before the Olympic break or definitely after it.
