Embed from Getty Images Filip Hronek, is a 6’ 0” defenseman currently playing for the Detroit Red Wings minor league affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins. His game should have fans drooling with anticipation.
The first two player prospects we looked at (Joe Hicketts and Vili Saarijarvi) are on the shorter yet more than capable side. I really like the coming defensive prospect the RedWings have.
Yesterday, we looked at bigger Dennis Cholowski. In that same type of puck moving goal scoring vein is where we find Hronek. Who is also more than able to quarterback a power play unit. Something the Red Wings have always coveted in the blueliners.
Filip Hronek is a fast, solid skater with excellent footwork he may also be the Red Wings most agile defensemen. and is quick to the puck.
He will be a solid addition to the Detroit defensive unit. But first he needs to bulk up and put on a few more pounds. Gain more knowledge of the zones.
Filip Hronek, is seen as a top four pairing defenseman. Who will be able to help out on the power play. He just needs a bit more seasoning. That said he is almost ready to go and help the Winged Wheels.
The Detroit Red Wings future is bright with the defensive prospects they have. Wings fans need to exercise patience. That will lead to being rewarded very soon.
