It hasn't exactly been the kind of production from forward Filip Zadina that the Detroit Red Wings were envisioning when they selected him with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. 

However, Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman has made the call to keep him around. The Red Wings today have announced that they've re-signed him to a three year contract extension worth $1.825 million per season.

Last season, Zadina managed only 10 goals with 14 assists in 74 games, along with a -46 rating. In 160 career games, Zadina has scored 25 goals with 36 assists. 

Needless to say, Yzerman is taking a gigantic leap of faith by giving Zadina a three year extension. However, with new head coach Derek Lalonde behind the bench as well as several new additions to the roster, this could be a prime opportunity for Zadina to rebound into the form that Detroit (and he himself) is expecting.
