Most Detroit draft picks arrive for their first Red Wings development camp with a firm enough grasp of the English language to do interviews with reporters while in Traverse City. Even most of the Scandinavian draftees have a basic understanding of the language, thanks to schools in Finland and Sweden teaching the language frequently. That wasn’t the case for Filip Hronek, however. The Wings’ second of two second-round picks in the 2016 NHL Draft, Hronek – a native of Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic – was only briefly available to the media in Buffalo, and for the first few days of the Wings’ development camp, he didn’t talk to reporters, either. However, on Saturday, fellow Czech Matej Machovsky (a free-agent invite at the camp) stepped in as translator for Hronek. Here is a video of how Hronek’s first media scrum, albeit with a little help from a fellow countryman, went in Traverse City.
