Defenceman Niklas Kronwall has retired from pro hockey. Drafted in the first round, 29th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Detroit Red Wings, Kronwall has 432 points (83G, 349A) in 953 games, as well as 47 points (5G, 42A) in 109 games for Detroit (2003/04-2018/19), winning a Stanley Cup in the process. He also won Silver with Sweden at the 1999 World U18s, 2003 and 2014 World Championships, and Gold at the 2006 Olympics and World Championships, making him part of the Triple Gold Club. While Kronwall split the first two seasons of his career between Detroit and the AHL, from 2006/07 onward Kronwall was a star in the NHL and a well-regarded two-way defencemen. While he had no trouble putting up points, his calling card was his propensity for massive open-ice hits. Players getting “Kronwalled” was a regular occurrence despite Kronwall’s modest size. Kronwall reached career-highs of 51 points in 2009, 15 goals in 2012, and 45 assists in 2009, all with Detroit. Kronwall finished his final season with 27 points (3G, 24A) in 79 games for the Red Wings. Kronwall, 38, will join the Red Wings as an advisor to general manager Steve Yzerman.

Centre Jim Slater has retired from pro hockey. Drafted in the first round, 30th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers, Slater has 138 points (67G, 71A) in 584 games, as well as zero points in eight playoff games, for Atlanta/Winnipeg (2005/06-2014/15). While his reputation deteriorated as his shortcomings as a player became more known and his assets became less desirable for teams, he was a physical faceoff specialist who was well-respected in the room and was a part of the well-regarded “Greek God” line with Chris Thorburn and Eric Boulton towards the end of the franchise’s time in Atlanta, which morphed into the GST Line as Boulton was effectively replaced by Tanner Glass in Winnipeg. Slater has career-highs of 21 points and 13 goals in 2012 and 10 assists in 2006, all with Atlanta/Winnipeg. Slater finished his final NHL season in 2014/15 with 13 points (5G, 8A) in 82 games for Winnipeg and finished his final pro season in 2018/19 with 31 points in 48 games for HC Geneve-Servette of the Switzerland’s National League A. Slater, 36, has been hired as an assistant coach for Michigan State University.
