Red Wings prospects ready for world junior championship

While talking to reporters Tuesday, general manager Steve Yzerman spoke about the benefits of the younger prospects being able to play during this pause.

“For the younger players that are trying to establish themselves, and make an NHL team, it was important for them to play,” Yzerman said. “It’s an advantage for these kids. Playing in a lot of situations just furthers their development as players.”

Zadina and Hronek saw considerable playing time while playing in the pro league in the Czech Republic.

Generally speaking, the Czech league isn’t as strong as the Swedish Elite League. But being able to able to continue developing skills while many other players weren’t able to, should benefit Zadina and Hronek in the short- and long-term.

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.
