Among wingers on the San Jose roster, Peng opines that only Anthony Duclair and Alexander Barabanov would be ranking ahead of Zadina on the depth chart. It is also appearing that the former Detroit player is also forging a bond with Sharks head coach David Quinn. He was choosing San Jose even though other NHL teams were stepping forward with more lucrative offers.
Red Wings In Case You Missed It
- Former Red Wings Dominik Hasek and Viacheslav Fetisov share differing viewpoints on the Russia-Ukraine war
- Defenseman Jared McIsaac is still seen as part of Detroit’s future
- While thankful for what he was learning with the Red Wings, right-winger Filip Zadina thinks he’ll be getting a better opportunity with the San Jose Sharks
- Where will newly-signed forward Daniel Sprong be fitting into the Detroit lineup?
Red Wings Offseason
It appears that the pro career of former Red Wings defenseman Alexey Marchenko may be at an end. Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL won’t be offering the 31-year-old rearguard a new contract. He’s spent the past six seasons in the KHL. Marchenko was part of the Detroit roster from 2013-17, playing 110 games.
