Niklas Kronwall announced on Tuesday that he is retiring from the NHL so we figured it would be fun to take a stroll down memory lane.
On Dec. 8, 2018, the Detroit Red Wings took the ice against the New York Islanders and to say Kronwall was ready to play would be a HUGE understatement.
First, the Wings defenseman scored his first goal of the season to put give Detroit a 2-0 1st-period lead, but that is not what has Twitter going crazy.
Take a look as Kronwall absolutely destroys Anders Lee up against the boards.

This is just one example of the many devastating hits Kronwall delivered during his time with the Detroit Red Wings.
