Red Wings on European loan: Zadina ‘out for a couple of weeks’ with an upper-body injury

Not great news from the Czech Extraliga today: I noticed that Filip Zadina wasn’t listed among Ocelari Trinec’s lineup prior to their 5-2 win over HC Energie Karlovy Vary, and after the game, Ocelari Trinec’s website posted a press release regarding Zadina’s status:

Filip Zadina will be out for a few weeks

The summertime reinforcement of HC Ocelari Trinec from the NHL is out of the game for several weeks.

This is due to an injury that happened to the player during training right before the start of the new season of the Extraliga. The Detroit Red Wings, who loaned Zadina to Trinec, have been informed of the situation.

The 20-year-old forward had suffered an injury to his upper body, which will take him out of the game for several weeks. We believe that he will return to the team in full as soon as possible.

Filip Hronek and HK Mountfield are still playing HC Verva Litvinov at present, and Hronek has no points at present, but he’s already played 22:59 and is a -1 in a game that HK Mountfield leads 4-2. I’ll post an update to the score when the game ends.

Update: HK Mountfield won 4-2 over HC Verva Litvinov. Hronek played 25:54 and finished at -1, skating alongside former Wings prospect Richard Nedomlel.
