Filip Zadina Feels Fine But Bored

from Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

When it comes to sniper Filip Zadina, Red Wings fans were left wondering what could have been.

Because of a broken ankle suffered Jan. 31 in New York, Zadina's season was cut short just when he was starting to come into his own.

Zadina, who only turned 20 in late November, was about ready to return when the NHL paused the season on March 12 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I was actually ready to come back and play but the staff, they kind of canceled my plans," Zadina said last week on The Red and White Authority podcast. "I'm probably, I would say, kind of sad about it because I was ready to go in order to get back on with the boys but it happened what happened. So maybe next year. I hope so."...

he Wings had given Zadina some workouts that didn't require weights or special equipment so he could remain in shape while staying safe at home.

But of course now that he's healthy, Zadina wishes he could have played some more hockey this season.

"I'm feeling really good, I would say, but it's kind of boring without the games, without hockey in LCA so kind of boring," Zadina said. "But glad to be home with my family."
