from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Zadina, 20, had all three assists in the last four games, including setting up Christoffer Ehn for the Wings’ lone goal in Tuesday’s 5-1 loss to Winnipeg.
After a timid start, Zadina was a bit more noticeable in the last several games.
But this transaction likely has more to do with contracts then performance.
If Zadina plays less than 10 games, his entry-level contract extends another season, until the completion of the 2021-22 season.
It also might be a good idea to get Zadina away from the losing atmosphere right now. The Red Wings have lost their 12 consecutive games.
