In Red Wings Land

Wings impressed with Hronek in a league that demands patience with young defensemen | MIHockey

In a year that saw significantly more scoring across the National Hockey League, only 30 defensemen reached 40 or more points.

Nearly one per team.

Despite playing in just 46 games, Red Wings blueliner Filip Hronek’s 23 points put him on pace to reach that mark with Detroit – this in his first taste of the NHL.

This is a nice look at Filip Hronek’s season with some analytics. If you asked me right now, Hronek’s progress is near the top of my list of things to watch next season.
