Kronwall, Ericsson collect from Brunner after Sweden downs Switzerland

DETROIT — There were a number of joyful Wings in the locker room, recalling Sweden’s title at the World Championships on Sunday.

Both Niklas Kronwall and Jonathan Ericsson had brothers playing on the team.

“Obviously both of us are really proud today,” Kronwall said. “I think all Swedes are, really.”

Jimmie Ericsson had one goal in seven games, while Staffan Kronwall had an assist in 10 games.

After the win the Swedish players all put on gold helmets.

“That’s a tradition back in Sweden, anytime someone wins the championship at home the winning team always gets the gold helmets,” Kronwall said. “It’s something that’s been around for quite some time. It was cool seeing them out on the ice with them.”

Sweden beat Switzerland, 5-1, which meant Damien Brunner had to pay up on bets, which was buying dinner.
