Filip Hronek’s offensive ability was apparent when he crashed the net and redirected a pass from Dylan Larkin past Braden Holtby Sunday against Washington.
The Detroit Red Wings believe in his skills, which is why he’s manning the point on one of the power play units.
Hronek needs to be more trustworthy defensively, and he has taken steps in that direction in his second stint with the club.
“Fil is really hard on himself, which can be a good thing, but it can also be a negative sometimes when you put too much pressure on yourself,” Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall said. “Ever since he got called back, I think he’s looked right at home. For quite a few games, he’s going up against the other team’s top line and he’s holding his own and doing great and even chipping in offensively.”
