Detroit Red Wings News

The Red Wings have assigned Filip Zadina to Grand Rapids (AHL).

The Red Wings maximized Zadina’s nine-game stay, meaning they did not burn the first year of his entry-level contract. The No.6 overall pick in last summer’s draft had one goal and two assists in those nine games and returns to Grand Rapids where he has 15 goals and 16 assists (31 points) through 45 games. Zadina figures to be a big factor in Detroit next season.

Hirose was one of the two college free agents that the Red Wings signed on Tuesday. Hirose had an outstanding junior campaign, leading Michigan State with 50 points (15G / 35A) in 36 games. Hirose will report to the Red Wings and is expected to play through the final five weeks of the season.
