By the Numbers: Niklas Kronwall
By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2013 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on defenseman Niklas Kronwall.


For the second straight year, he played in every game during the regular-season. For someone who hadn't managed to play a complete schedule in his first seven seasons, he has now played 130 consecutive games.


The number of assists he produced this season while finishing second among Western Conference  defensemen in the category. Only Minnesota's Ryan Suter (28) had more assists.


Minutes in penalties compiled by the Wings' defenseman, a personal high since the 2008-09 season. Only Jordin Tootoo (78 PIM) spent more time in the penalty box during the regular season.


Number of power-play assists, which was tied for third-best among NHL defensemen. He assisted on PPG for six different teammates, including Pavel Datsyuk (4), Henrik Zetterberg (3), Damien Brunner (3) and Johan Franzen (2).


Number of blocked shots he had to lead the Red Wings for the third consecutive season, though his per-game average slipped from the 2.16 blocks that he averaged in 2011-12.


Though he finished the season with a career-low minus-5 rating, he posted a plus-5 in four games against Nashville, his best culmulative rating against any of the 14 Western Conference rivals.
