The medical report on on Niklas Kronwall’s left knee wasn’t as encouraging as the Red Wings had hoped, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as it could have been.
An MRI Sunday showed that Kronwall has a significant sprain of his medial collateral ligament in his left knee. He will be out at least a month, and could be out as long as eight weeks.
“There is no ACL damage and that’s good news,” general manager Ken Holland said, referencing the fact that Kronwall had his left knee surgically repaired in 2005. “They are saying it’s between a Grade 2 and a Grade 3 sprain; Grade 3 being the most severe. So he’s out a month for sure and beyond that, it depends on how he heals.”
