Detroit Red Wings forward Filip Zadina will start his professional North American career in the AHL, according to The Athletic's Craig Custance.

The Wings selected Zadina with the sixth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft. Pundits deemed the selection a steal, as many mock drafts had him going as high as third overall.

The Czech sniper tallied 44 goals and 82 points with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League a season ago.
