The Traverse City Record-Eagle’s Jake Atnip spoke with Red Wings forward Filip Zadina regarding his off-season preparations, and Zadina suggests that he’ll be better-prepared for his sophomore pro season:
“I think I have proved to myself that I am quicker and stronger on the ice, that is what I have been working on all during the summer,” Zadina said. “I think I did a good job and I believe I am ready to go during this tournament and at camp.”
The eager young star feels just as strongly about his abilities as before and noted that he wished his first year with he organization went a little differently.
“I feel stronger right now and ready to go,” he said. “That’s what I said last year and I meant it, I was ready but it went a different way than I wanted. But it is a new season and new start for me with a new opportunity to show them that I am good enough player to be there.”
