Frans Nielsen is expected to take on more of a leadership role this season.
A back condition has ended Henrik Zetterberg's career and Nielsen is slated to help fill the leadership void along with alternate captains Niklas Kronwall and Justin Abdelkader. "I would say Frans definitely is one of those guys that can fill some of that leadership void," coach Jeff Blashill said. "Fransie came to us as a leader — if anything he's held back a little bit because of his respect to Z and Kronner. It will give him a chance to make sure he is leading the way he wants to lead. He does it right every day. He’s a great, great pro." There will also be additional minutes up for grabs and Nielsen has a chance to claim those as well. Sep 18 - 10:24 AM
