from Steve Ellis of The Hockey News,
Let’s take a look at 10 NHL prospects who will fight for roster spots next season:
Filip Zadina, RW (Detroit Red Wings)
To the uninitiated, Zadina offered much to be concerned about earlier this year. After falling to Detroit at No. 6 at the draft last June, Zadina, 19, had a rough training camp and was sent to Grand Rapids. But in the AHL, Zadina showed great promise, and while he didn’t light up the league and was essentially invisible at the world juniors, Zadina still looks ready for the NHL next year. With 35 points in 59 games, Zadina was the second-highest scoring teenaged player in the AHL and he looked good with three points in nine games with the Red Wings, one of the first teams eliminated from playoff contention. He has the skill, now he needs a consistent pace.
