GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings on Sunday recalled forward Filip Zadina from the Grand Rapids Griffins. In addition, the Red Wings assigned forward Adam Erne to Grand Rapids.
Zadina has amassed 61 points (25-36—61) and 16 penalty minutes throughout parts of five NHL seasons with the Red Wings. The Pardubice, Czech Republic, native has skated in nine games with Detroit this season and has four penalty minutes and a minus-three rating. Zadina made his AHL season debut with the Griffins on Feb. 3 against the Texas Stars and finished his conditioning loan with one goal and a plus-one rating in two games.
