from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

As a 19-year old at his first Detroit Red Wings training camp in 2015, Dylan Larkin "demanded" to be on the roster with his performance, coach Jeff Blashill said.

That's what the team needed to see from Filip Zadina. The No. 6 overall pick displayed his tremendous shot at times during camp and the preseason but didn't do enough to justify a spot on the season-opening roster.

So now he'll start the season with the Grand Rapids Griffins, where he will learn, among other things. what it takes to create more space for himself on the ice

"It's a hard league, the American League, that's one thing we cautioned him on, don't think it's going to be easy," Blashill said. "But let's go down and figure out how much space you have and gain that confidence. Let's get adjusted to it and hopefully he fills it up down there and he's demanding that he gets called back up."
