Sportsnet suggests that poolies pick up Filip Zadina

Sportsnet’s Emily Sadler suggests that fantasy hockey poolies might want to pick up one of seven rookies who are “ready to contribute” at the NHL level, including one Filip Zadina:


SN Rank: 224
Position eligibility: LW/RW

The Red Wings are in the midst of a full-on youth movement, and Zadina looks like the next piece of this rebuilding puzzle. Patience will be needed as the rookie finds his stride, but GMs picking him late on draft night could be rewarded. The 19-year-old registered a goal and three points in a late-season NHL stint after a 35-point AHL campaign in Grand Rapids. When surrounded by Detroit’s growing corp of young forward talent like Dylan Larkin, Andreas Athanasiou and Anthony Mantha, Zadina’s potential skyrockets.
