From the CP via TSN,
Whether he gets recognized with the award or not, it’s been quite a ride. Red Wings defenceman Niklas Kronwall first played with Zetterberg as a teenager in Sweden and never thought he’d see him blossom into the player he is now.
“Back then I didn’t think too much about it,” Kronwall said Monday before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup. “When I was 17 and he was 18, it was all about the Sedin twins. Hank was kind of the second-line winger on that team and didn’t get a lot of attention.”
There’s no question in Kronwall’s mind that Zetterberg is among the “top dogs” in Swedish hockey now.
