What to do with Filip Zadina

To say that Filip Zadina’s first three seasons in the NHL have been underwhelming would be an understatement. The former sixth overall pick for the Detroit Red Wings was drafted to be a goal-scorer and so far, he has been anything but. His 2021-22 season was a massive disappointment as he managed just 10 goals and 14 assists in 74 games, including an 18-game goalless drought mid-season. While his struggles in 2020-21 could often be attributed to poor luck, this past season was a rough one for the man who once claimed he’d fill the nets of the teams who passed on him.

Filip Zadina and Jakub Vrana need to be stapled together in 2022-23

Filip Zadina and Jakub Vrana are two very different players at this point in their careers. Zadina has been underperforming on a bad Detroit Red Wings team, and he has fallen out of favor with tons of fanbase members because he has rarely been able to score, which is why he was drafted to begin with. His consistency wasn’t there, and as the season dwindled on, he slowly stopped doing the right things off the puck in terms of defense and physicality for his slump to feel “acceptable” (in a relative sense). There were plenty of things to like at the start of 2021-22 about Zadina’s off-puck presence, but as more games were played, those faded away.

Red Wings' Filip Zadina: Heads-up play versus Canes

Zadina lit the lamp in Thursday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes. This scoring play by Zadina was terrific, as he jarred the puck away from a defender at center ice and assertively flung a wrist shot behind Carolina goaltender Antti Raanta. While there have been obvious growing pains for Zadina as the 22-year-old competes in the NHL, it appears that Detroit is committed to his development in the near term, as the team could've sent him packing at the trade deadline knowing it wouldn't be in the playoff race for the sixth straight year.

Red Wings' Filip Zadina: Picking up pace

Zadina has produced a goal and two assists over the past five games. Zadina's name has surfaced in trade rumors, and he recently sampled top-line duty in the team's deliberate attempt to get him going offensively. However, he's been inconsistent and currently owns a minus-24 rating, which is the worst rank among the Wings' forwards. A closer look under the hood shows that Zadina has been improving slightly, albeit not as quickly as many had hoped when he was selected sixth overall in the 2018 draft.
