‘Pretty tough so far’: Filip Zadina learning but still long way from Red Wings | The Detroit News

Simon loves Zadina’s work ethic and desire for accountability, and believes those characteristics will help him in his climb to the NHL.

“Filip cares; he’s willing to put in the time to learn,” Simon said. “There’s no issue there. Every day he comes to the rink to get better. He puts the onus on himself to improve on a daily basis.

This is a nice look at how things are progressing for Filip Zadina down in the AHL. I’ve been kind of fearful that he might not live up to expectations, but the things he’s saying and the quotes from Griffins head coach Ben Simon make me believe that the kid gets it and is going to succeed with the Red Wings at the NHL level.
