Kromm played and coached the 1961 Canada World Champions when the Trail Smoke Eaters served as the representative at the tournament.  Kromm played for the Smoke Eaters for many years in the WIHL before switching to coaching full time in the early 1960’s.  Kromm coached in the Central Hockey League with the Dallas Black Hawks for several seasons before becoming the head coach for the Winnipeg Jets, then of the World Hockey Association.  After spending two (2) years in Winnipeg, and serving as an assistant coach in the 1976 Canada Cup, Kromm finally made the jump to the National Hockey League (NHL) in 1977.  Kromm coached the Detroit Red Wings for three (3) seasons earning coach of the year in 1978.
