Pasquale Zito is a great name to end the draft with. Unless the Wings make another deal.— DetroitHockey.Net (@detroithockey96) July 24, 2021

A third Windsor #Spitfires player taken… F Pasquale Zito to the Detroit Red Wings at 166. 6′ 175. Passionate two-way winger who can score and use the body. Spitfires’ 2nd rd in 2019; 13pts in 46 rookie games. Huge potential. Was hoping the Leafs would get him. #NHLDraft— Dave Jewell (@DaveJewellOHL) July 24, 2021

166. Red Wings take power winger Pasquale Zito from the Spitfires. Can create his own shot and strong in puck protection. Skating not an issue at all and he foot work along the boards and in the corners is pretty quick.— Steve Kournianos (@TheDraftAnalyst) July 24, 2021
