In the 2005–06 season he played in three games for Grand Rapids. He recorded one assist and two penalty minutes in those games. In the 2007–08 season played 75 games for Grand Rapids. He was called by the Detroit Red Wings as a spare defenceman. When Detroit won the Stanley Cup Kindl was included on the team, even though he had yet to play in the NHL. Detroit also awarded him a Stanley Cup ring. Since Kindl had not played in the NHL his name could not be included on the Stanley Cup.
Kindl made his NHL debut with the Red Wings during the 2009–10 NHL season. Called up as an injury replacement, he eventually appeared in 3 games before returning to Grand Rapids. Kindl scored his first NHL goal against the St. Louis Blues' goaltender Jaroslav Halak on January 20, 2011.
