NHL Rumour Report: Filip Zadina rumours intensify

The former 6th overall pick is reportedly on the market.

- Although the Detroit Red Wings enter trade deadline season looking to acquire young talent, it sounds like one of their top young players could be heading out the door.

- Growing rumblings suggest pending RFA winger Filip Zadina may be looking for a change of scenery. The 22 year old has shown flashes since being taken 6th overall in 2018, but has struggled to find consistency on a young Red Wings squad.

- It sounds as though the Red Wings may be willing to facilitate a trade - but on their own schedule. Most contenders will be looking for more reliable veteran options at the deadline, meaning a Zadina trade could wait for the offseason. Nonetheless, teams will continue to kick tires in the coming weeks.

- Zadina will be far from the only Red Wing in the NHL rumour mill this next few weeks, with Tyler Bertuzzi, Nick Leddy, Thomas Greiss and Marc Staal all generating some trade buzz.
