Filip Hronek

Age: 23

2021 Stats

GP: 56

G: 2

A: 24

PTS: 26

2021 Salary: $714,166

Status

Filip Hronek is just completing his entry level deal.  Yzerman is in no rush to sign Hronek to a long term deal.  This arrangement may go to arbitration much the same as Tyler Bertuzzi last year.  Hronek definitely deserves a substantial raise in salary as he was the Red Wings top scoring defenseman this year.  He also played an important role for team Czech Republic at the recent World Championships.

Prediction

Filip Hronek goes to arbitration and is awarded a one-year contract for $3.0 million.
