The Red Wings selected the 18-year-old with the sixth overall pick in last June's NHL Entry Draft. Zadina is up to six goals and 10 points in 14 AHL games this season. Detroit is typically very patient with their prospects, so don't be surprised if he spends most of the year in the minors. Regardless of when he comes to the NHL, Zadina has a bright future ahead of him.

Jimmy Howard stopped 24 of 25 shots in Tuesday’s 6-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.

Don’t look now but the 34-year-old goaltender has won five straight games, giving him some fantasy appeal as we move forward.
