Wings, Kronwall sign 7-year deal


The Detroit Red Wing secured some stability along their blue-line on Monday, signing defenceman Niklas Kronwall to a seven-year contract extension.

Kronwall, 30, was set to become an unrestrict­ed free agent next summer, but instead the Swede stands to take over for countryman Nicklas Lidstrom as the Wings’ marquee blue-liner.

Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Kronwall has 35 goals, 148 assists and a plus-50 rating in 394 career games in the NHL.
