In Red Wings Land
Coach Jeff Blashill said Wednesday that Zadina is still two to three weeks from possibly reappearing in the lineup. He hasn’t played since Feb. 1, the day after he suffered a lower-body injury vs. the New York Rangers.
“He’d need a week, probably, once he gets skating again,” Blashill said. “But I would say he’s at least a week, if not two weeks away from being able to skate.”
This sucks. I miss Filip Zadina.
The Detroit Red Wings, Detroit Red Wings Foundation, NHL and NHLPA introduce the Detroit Red Wings “Learn, Play, Score” platform. Rooted in a commitment to building confidence and character, promoting positive values, and imparting enduring life skills, thousands of youth across the city of Detroit will have the unique opportunity to participate in this unique new platform.
Two great posts yesterday right here at WIIM:
Kyle broke down Steve Yzerman’s options the next few days.
Around the League
Andreas Athanasiou, Detroit Red Wings
He hasn’t scored a ton of goals this season, partly because he’s been among the league’s unluckiest players at both ends of the ice, but Athanasiou is a middle-six goal scorer who could really push a team over the edge if they can properly insulate him.
Some info on Athanasiou in this one.
