The Athletic posts a Top 25 Wings prospects feature

The Athletic’s Max Bultman posted a list of the Red Wings’ top 25 prospects–“plus 8 more to know”–this afternoon. We’ll start at the top:

1. Filip Zadina, RW, Grand Rapids (AHL)/Detroit

The jewel of the farm system right now, Zadina should add serious skill and swagger to the Red Wings as soon as he takes the ice. The question is: when exactly will that be? It may depend in part on factors outside his control — such as Henrik Zetterberg’s health — but a strong training camp would go a long way in proving he’s ready to make the leap. It could take him some time to adjust, but Zadina has already shown a remarkable ability to score, and his attitude alone should bring a new element to Detroit’s on-ice demeanor. His creativity will be an asset as soon as he joins the team. He’s a crucial piece of the organization’s future, and a near no-brainer at No. 1 on this list.

  1. hey george – while i know that you cannot copy/paste the entire article, would it be possible to maybe list the 25 prospects as ranked? and mention the “8 more to know” ?

    i plan on subscribing soon, but it’s not in the summer budget…
