Many have come before him. Brendan Gallagher is another forward added to the list.
During the Detroit Red Wings and Montreal Canadiens game last night, Nick Kronwall delivered his specialty to not only Gallagher but to the linesman as well.
Gallagher was skating down the boards when he got Kronwalled, a hit delivered by Kronwall himself. The hit radius was so big, it even caught the linesman trying to avoid the collision.
The 37-year-old may be nearing the end of his career, but he still has some heavy hits in him. I’m sure this won’t be the last time we see an unsuspecting player get Kronwalled.
