Filip Hronek Continues To Improve

11/14/2019 at 4:45pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Almost a year ago now, Filip Hronek was in Grand Rapids, learning and maturing as a professional hockey player.

Hronek had made the Red Wings’ roster out of the exhibition season, but it was mainly due to the flurry of injuries that hit the Wings’ defense. Otherwise, Hronek would have been in the minor leagues from the opening drop of the puck.

But there was something that coach Jeff Blashill saw in Hronek that was encouraging during the preseason and first six games of 2018-19, prior to his demotion.

Then, Blashill continued to get positive reports on Hronek from the Griffins staff.

“It’s a testament to him that when he got sent down, he didn’t pout,” Blashill said. “He went down and got better.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
