Filip Zadina (Halifax, QMJHL) continues to be a mainstay near the top of ISS Top 31 rankings, as he has been ranked at #4 two months in a row. To say Zadina has adapted quickly to the North American game would be an understatement, as he currently has 43 points in 29 games played, and sits second in QMJHL scoring in just his first season in the league.

“Zadina has very high offensive potential” says ISS Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “He has the ability to change directions on a dime and has very fast hands that make him difficult to handle 1-on-1. His combination of great hands and edge use make him very hard to contain. He can score and set up plays with very little space. He plays in all situations for a deep Halifax team, and is always a threat whenever he is on the ice, as both a playmaker and goal scorer. He will shoot from anywhere, as he averages four shots on goal per game.”
