Zadina notched an assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Predators.
Zadina set up Luke Glendening to open the scoring at 4:55 of the first period. The assist snapped a seven-game point drought for Zadina, who now has three points in 11 appearances in February. Despite a top-six role, the first-round pick from 2018 has only five points and 26 shots on net in 15 outings.
Zadina scored his first goal of the season in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Panthers.
The 21-year-old lit the lamp early in the first period, but it was the only offense Detroit could muster. Zadina missed seven games due to the league's COVID-19 protocols, but he's been reasonably productive when on the ice with four points in seven games.
Zadina (COVID-19 protocols) posted an assist and three shots on goal in 15:48 of ice time during Friday's 3-1 loss to the Lightning.
The Czech forward set up Vladislav Namestnikov for the Red Wings' lone tally of the game. Zadina missed seven games while he was in the protocols, but he returned to a top-six role Friday and didn't seem any worse for wear. The 21-year-old has amassed three helpers, five shots on net and a plus-2 rating in five contests.

Zadina (COVID-19 protocol) is expected to return to the lineup for Friday's game against the Lightning, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Zadina won't be ready for Wednesday's game against the Lightning, but he should be cleared for Friday's rematch. Once he gets the green light, Zadina will be a fixture in the lineup. The 20-year-old posted two assists through the first four games while averaging 14:34 of ice time per contest.

Zadina (COVID-19 protocols) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against Chicago, NHL.com reports.
Zadina was added to the league's protocol list ahead of Friday's game against the Blackhawks, and he's set to miss his second straight game. The 21-year-old still doesn't have a timeline for a return, but he won't be able to practice or travel with the team until he's cleared. With Darren Helm (undisclosed) questionable, recent call-ups Taro Hirose and Givani Smith could earn a spot in the lineup Sunday.
Zadina has been added to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol list ahead of Friday's clash with Chicago, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports.
Now that he's on the protocol list, Zadina won't be available Friday against the Blackhawks, and at this point it isn't clear when he might be eligible to return. With Zadina sidelined, Darren Helm (COVID-19 protocols) or Taro Hirose will likely draw into the lineup against Chicago.
Zadina registered two assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.
It appears Zadina, whom the Red Wings selected sixth overall in the 2018 draft, will benefit immensely from his line arrangement with prolific, point-packing veterans Robby Fabbri and Bobby Ryan. A lower-body injury cost Zadina the final 18 games of the 2019-20 campaign, but the budding Czech winger looked spry in this one.
Zadina (finger) has been recalled from his loan with Czech club HC Ocelari Trinec, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Zadina was productive during his loan, racking up eight goals and six helpers in 17 games. The 21-year-old winger split time between the AHL and NHL last year, but he was a solid contributor when he was with the big club, picking up eight goals and 15 points in 28 games. Zadina should be a full-time player for the Red Wings in 2020-21, and if his past performance is any indication, he'll have the potential to play at a 20-plus goal, 40-plus point pace, making him a solid late-round pick with some upside in this year's fantasy drafts.
Zadina is expected to be sidelined 2-3 weeks due to a finger injury suffered while playing in the Czech league, MLive.com reports.
Zadina missed the final 18 games of the NHL regular season with an ankle injury and now appears to have sustained another injury while playing overseas. The NHL campaign is unlikely to start until December or January, which should give the winger plenty of time to get back to 100 percent ahead of Red Wings training camp.
Zadina (ankle) will join Czech club HC Ocelari Trinec on loan for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
Considering Zadina hasn't played in a competitive game since Feb. 1 versus the Rangers, it makes sense that the Red Wings would want to get him onto the ice ahead of the upcoming NHL season. The winger should see more consistent ice time with Detroit next season and should be capable of topping his 2019-20 numbers in terms of games played (28) and points (15).
Zadina practiced with the team for the first time since suffering a broken ankle Saturday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
There's still no timetable for Zadina's return, but his presence at practice Saturday suggests he should be ready to rejoin the lineup sooner rather than later. The 20-year-old rookie has notched eight goals and 15 points while averaging 15:10 of ice time in 28 games this campaign.
Zadina (leg) skated on his own before Sunday's practice, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Zadina hasn't played since Feb. 1 and appeared to have a setback in his recovery a couple weeks ago, and head coach Jeff Blashill doesn't have a clear timeline for the 20-year-old's return. It's a positive sign that he's back on the ice, though, and his next step will be to participate in practice.
Zadina (foot) will sit out another 2-3 weeks, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Zadina was pegged with the same timeline over two weeks ago, but he hasn't made enough progress in recovery. In turn, the 20-year-old forward's recovery has been reset, and he'll aim to get back into the lineup in early March. The trade deadline will be over by then, and Zadina will have a better chance to stick with the big club if Andreas Athanasiou is moved before then.
Zadina is battling a lower-body injury and will miss 2-to-3 weeks, per coach Jeff Blashill.
This injury comes out of nowhere for Zadina, who topped 20 minutes of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Rangers. It's the latest setback in what has been a disastrous season for the Red Wings, as the sixth overall pick from the 2018 draft will miss valuable development time. With Andreas Athanasiou slated to return from a lower-body injury Monday, the team may not need to call up a replacement from the AHL ranks, though Detroit may opt to do so anyway for insurance purposes.
Detroit recalled Zadina from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.
Zadina was sent to Grand Rapids so he could continue playing during the NHL's All-Star break, but there was never any question about whether he'd be back with the big club following its hiatus. He'll return to his role skating on the Red Wings' top line and first power-play unit Friday against the Rangers.
Zadina was sent down to AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday.
While the Red Wings won't be back in action until Jan. 31 against the Rangers, Zadina will get the opportunity to play in two games with the Griffins versus AHL San Diego on Friday and Saturday. Once Detroit resumes practicing coming out of the All-Star break and bye week, Zadina should find himself back on the 23-man roster.
