Filip Zadina On His Summer Plans To Improve

06/29/2019 at 8:21am EDT

from Ansar Khan of Milve,

General manager Steve Yzerman had some advice.

“He talked to me a couple times about what I got to do better and where I have to improve my game, (and that’s) improve myself as an athlete,” Zadina said. “That’s one of the reasons why I’m staying here (to train in the off-season), and I do believe that they make me a better athlete and then help me for the season.”

He is focused on strengthening his lower body to get quicker. But he suffered a strained hamstring two weeks ago, which has prevented him from participating in this week’s development camp at Little Caesars Arena, except for a brief stint on the ice to test the injury.

Zadina said it’s not a long-term injury and that he feels good. He will return home to the Czech Republic for a short time and then come back to Detroit to train the rest of the summer with several other Red Wings at the Barwis Performance Center in Plymouth.

“I’ve been there last year for a week; it was great so hopefully it can just make me a better athlete,” Zadina said. “Then on the ice it’s up to me.

“I’m just trying to be patient and get healthy as soon as possible and then start again and just probably get stronger and quicker and be probably faster on the ice.”

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.
