In the meantime, I found this from the Windsor Star's Hockey on the Wire. Apparently Nik Kronwall is excited to play at the Ericsson Globe in Sweden...who would have guessed?
Niklas Kronwall doesn't get many true home games anymore, so the Detroit Red Wings' defenceman is planning to take full advantage of his team's trip to Sweden to open the NHL season. The Stockholm native will play in front of family and friends when the Wings play the St. Louis Blues Oct. 2 and 3 in his hometown. Kronwall has already lined up 120 tickets for the two games and the requests are pouring in.
By my estimations, he's spending around $10,000 on those tickets (not considering any tickets given to him for free). Yeah...I think it's safe to say that he's excited.
So chances are, I'll be seeing at least some of Kronwall's family and friends, whether I recognize them or not. I'll bet you a Kroner that they wear pointy shoes just like he does.
