Organizational Comments: Red Wings Asst GM - Ryan Martin "We like his grit and competitiveness, coupled with a good skill set. He had two 40-goal seasons in the OHL, so clearly he's got offensive skills. What really stands out is his competitiveness and grit and willingness to block shots and do the little things. He's a guy whose game could translate well to the NHL level because of all the little things he does."
What GRC says: Summer 2016 Sadowy is a gritty player who makes a living scoring goals from the hard areas in front of the net. He has been one of the most productive scorers in the OHL the last couple of years, and has been recognized by the league as one of the top penalty killers as well. He was in the top 10 in all strength testing categories at the NHL combine. He likes the rough going and plays a physical game. His game should translate very well to the professional ranks.
