While the Detroit Red Wings prepare for a season that potentially could be played without their captain and star forward Henrik Zetterberg, another fan favorite is preparing for a season that may be his last. Niklas Kronwall is heading into the final season of his current seven-year contract, and according to Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com would be perfectly happy to call it quits after 2018-19 if he has to. Kronwall hasna€™t had any extension discussions with the Red Wings, and is just happy to have been given an opportunity in Detroit.

If this happens to be the end of the road, I would be more than happy with the journey that Ia€™ve had and more than thankful to the Ilitch family and (GM) Kenny Holland for giving me the opportunity that I have for being able to be with the same team for my entire career. Wea€™ll see what happens.

Ia€™ve been fortunate enough to play in Detroit all these years and I have a tough time seeing myself in a different jersey

Kronwall, 37, has relinquished some of the defensive responsibility in recent years but remains a beloved figure in a storied franchise.
