Two articles lurking behind a paywall: Kronwall praises Soderblom; Liam Dower Nilsson’s mom passes away

Two good Red Wings-related articles are lurking behind paywalls on

First, in the good news category, Niklas Kronwall apparently praises “113-kilogram Elmer Soderblom” for having “taken his chance” to establish himself as a regular player on Frolunda HC’s power play;

And in the “bummer news” category, is reporting why Liam Dower Nilsson and his brother, Noah, haven’t been playing J20 hockey of late: their mom, Bodil, recently died during her seventh bout with cancer. Here’s hoping that both young men receive the support they need…losing a mom to a catastrophic illness is a rough one.
