Eying Filip Zadina from a fantasy hockey perspective

The Hockey News’s Sam McCaig penned a list of 8 NHL rookies who fantasy hockey poolies might want to take with their final pick in their team drafts, and the shine hasn’t come off Filip Zadina’s potential quite yet:

Filip Zadina, Detroit Red Wings
A big, scoring winger with the confidence to match, Zadina is another young player who started slowly last season. But it might have been a good thing. He was able to develop his game in the AHL rather than being thrown into the NHL fire. The Wings won’t rush him, but they could definitely use more scoring punch and he’s the most lethal weapon in the franchise’s prospect cupboard.
Best-case point prediction: 40-50 points
