Tonight Was Filip Zadina's 10th Game Of The Season With The Wings

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Filip Zadina was in the lineup Sunday, playing his 10th game of the season for the Red Wings.

That was significant in one sense.

By playing a 10th game, that put the first year of Zadina’s three-year, entry-level contract into effect.

Coach Jeff Blashill had said previously that the contract situation wouldn’t factor into the Wings’ decision on what to do with Zadina as much as what is best for Zadina’s development.

And that continued to be Blashill’s way of thinking Sunday.

“That wasn’t ever going to be the overriding factor, or anything like that,” Blashill said. “The biggest thing is where is best for his development.”

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.
