from the Detroit News,
NBC analyst Pierre McGuire said don't be surprised if Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman trades 2018 first-round draft pick Filip Zadina.
McGuire was asked on TSN radio in Ottawa on Thursday if it's too early to consider trading Zadina, who has three goals in 12 games with Detroit's minor-league affiliate in Grand Rapids after scoring 16 goals in 59 games with the Griffins last year.
"It's a fair question to bring up," McGuire said. "When I've watched him play, the one thing that stands out is when the puck is going his way, it's really good. When it's not going his way, it's not so good. He's going to have to find a way to get over that.
"You have to compete without the puck, you gotta want to get it back and you can't quit on plays. That's something I've seen him do when it hasn't gone his way. When it goes his way, he's pretty good. But we'll see. It's pretty early in his career."
