from Nicholas J. Cotsonika of NHL.com,
1. Filip Zadina, F
How acquired: Selected with No. 6 pick in 2018 NHL Draft
Last season: Detroit: 9 GP, 1-2-3; Grand Rapids (AHL) 59 GP, 16-19-35
The Red Wings have high hopes for Zadina (6-foot, 195 pounds), a skilled shooter with the potential to be a prolific goal-scorer in the NHL. The 19-year-old likely will start with Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League for a second straight season.
Zadina, whose ice time at Red Wings development camp in June was limited because of a sore hamstring sustained during offseason training, had 82 points (44 goals, 38 assists) in 57 games for Halifax of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 2017-18. But he had to learn the details of playing a two-way game as a pro and spent most of last season with Grand Rapids, where he was minus-17. He played nine late-season games for Detroit and was minus-5.
"Obviously lots of new experiences during the season, ups and downs," Zadina said. "Obviously I enjoyed the time here in Detroit. I think I'll take it. I'll take it as it was and I think it was a good season for me. I got to learn something and I hope and I believe that next season will be way better."
Projected NHL arrival: This season.
