2019 Fantasy Outlook
Zadina is a pure sniper who can score in a variety of ways. These defining traits caused him to go sixth overall to the Red Wings in the 2018 draft, with team brass spurning University of Michigan standout Quinn Hughes (Vancouver) and Adam Boqvist -- another dynamic offensive producer who was ultimately nabbed by Chicago -- in order to draft the prolific Czech forward. Zadina shredded the QMJHL circuit as a rookie with the Halifax Mooseheads in 2017-18, though he failed to make the Opening Night roster with the Wings and was humbled by a minus-17 rating and 0.59 points-per-game average through 59 games for the AHL's Griffins last season. The 19-year-old still has the maximum term on his contract due to an entry-level slide exception,and he's waiver-exempt to the benefit of the Wings, but he'll still need to turn heads in training camp to avoid another lengthy AHL stint.

Zadina was among Detroit's latest group of players demoted to the AHL, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The Red Wings have trimmed their roster down to 28, so they still have five cuts to make, which means Zadina wasn't even on the borderline of making the roster. The sixth overall selection from the 2018 draft recorded three points in nine NHL games last season, and a hot start with AHL Grand Rapids could earn him a call-up to the rebuilding NHL club.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Viewed by most experts as the third-best player in the 2018 draft class behind Rasmus Dahlin and Andrei Svechnikov, no one could provide a valid reason for Zadina dropping to sixth overall to Detroit. The Red Wings were over the moon to land the QMJHL's reigning rookie scoring leader (44 goals, 82 points in 57 games) and the plan is to immediately insert Zadina into a top-six role in their lineup. The scoring production should be there for the talented Czech, but fantasy owners need to keep in mind that any quality offensive numbers are likely to come with a putrid plus/minus rating given how poor Detroit is expected to be overall. Still, Zadina needs to be drafted in all leagues heading into his rookie season.
