    Red Wings Top 25 Prospects: 2021-22 Midseason Update

    C) Chase Pearson – 2015, 140th Overall 2021-22 Stats: Grand Rapids Griffins: 32 GP, 4 G, 13 P Previous Rank: 19 At 24 years old, the fact that Pearson has yet to play a single game in the NHL despite playing over 100 games and parts of four seasons in the AHL is a bit disheartening. There’s still a chance that he makes his NHL debut this season as the Red Wings ship off some players at the trade deadline, but it’s fair to question whether his best chance to make the NHL is in Detroit.

    Here's everything the Detroit Red Wings are doing to ignite Filip Zadina

    Former first-round picks Lucas Raymond and Moritz Seider are a big part of the Wings' improvement, but Zadina, a top-10 pick from 2018, is not. He hasn't scored a goal since Nov. 30, and has just four goals among 11 points, and a minus-17 rating that ranks worst among team forwards. He heads into Wednesday's game against the Chicago Blackhawks at Little Caesars Arena with one point in his last 12 games.
