Niklas Kronwall is excited for the move to Little Caesars Arena in 2017-18.
The Red Wings bid farewell to Joe Louis Arena last season with a 17-17-7 home record, which they will attempt to improve in their new arena. "With the new building, it's going to be awesome," said Kronwall. "I think with a new building, it'll be tough to bring in all the banners and expect the same feeling in the rink right away. I think there's a chance to create new memories, win new championships, get that same special feeling. But we'll try to keep it alive, obviously, around the room. We'll try to do our best to keep the same culture going, and everything comes down to hard work." Kronwall will be back for his 14th campaign, but a bothersome knee issue has severely hurt his fantasy value. He skated in 57 games last year, while posting 13 points, 77 hits, 81 blocks and 67 shots.
