Video: Kronwall Punishes Saulietis

Sweden finished Preliminary Round play at the World Championships with a 4-0 win over Latvia, and finished the round with six wins and second in their pool behind Russia. During the second period of the Swede's game against Latvia, Swedish defense-man, Niklas Kronwall, unleashed his token hip/back/shoulder check along the boards on Kaspars Saulietis.

The hit is very similar to the hit that Kronwall unleashed on Jakub Voracek during the NHL season, and I'm sure Voracek cringed a little when he saw this hit.
