Filip Zadina Will See Some NHL Ice Time This Season

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

Filip Zadina has experienced a rough transition to pro hockey with the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins, but that won’t dissuade the Detroit Red Wings from giving him an opportunity before the season is done.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said the team plans at some point to promote Zadina, the organization’s top pick in 2018 (No. 6 overall).

“Before the end the season, I want Z to play some NHL games,” Holland said. “I don’t know when, I don’t know how many. As we go into the off-season, I think it’ll be important for him to play some games in the NHL and get a feel for what the next level is all about.”

Zadina’s promotion likely will come in March.

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.
