Wings Will Take It Slow With Filip Zadina

03/07/2020 at 4:27pm EST

from Arthur J. Regner and Dana Wakiji of DetroitRedWings.com,

"When I heard yesterday that I could practice with the team, I was so happy about it," Zadina said after Saturday's practice at the BELFOR Training Center inside Little Caesars Arena. "I hadn't practiced with them since a long time ago. I was glad for it at the time. Right now I just want to get stronger and get better and to get back in the lineup."

Officially, the Wings are taking it slowly with their prized rookie and are optimistic he'll be able to play soon; however, when that will be is pretty much up in the air.

"It was good to have him out there. I think everything went pretty good with the doctor last night," Wings coach Jeff Blashill said, "and now it's ramping him up back into game shape, with the exception of you don't know how increased soreness is going to happen as he's getting back closer to full speed, but we got to get him going full speed here.

"He'll skate tomorrow and he may skate Monday (a scheduled day off) but in terms of players around him it's hard. It's always hard in the NHL to get guys back going because rarely do you practice consistently in a row, so we'll see where it goes from here. We'll take it day by day. He's not in tomorrow."

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.
