  • Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Done for season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Zadorov (leg) was shut down for the remainder of the season Monday due to injury.

    Well, that didn't take long, as the former Sabre left practice Monday morning after getting awkwardly wrapped up with teammate Mikko Rantanen. It's an unfortunately turn of events for Zadorov, but it's not likely to impact many in fantasy circles as most owners jumped ship awhile ago based on his dreadful minus-20 rating and the fact he only accumulated 10 points -- all assists -- in 56 games this year. That said, the 21-year-old's 153 hits are a new career high and could be missed in deeper formats that reward physicality.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Injured at practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/17) Zadorov suffered a leg injury during Monday's practice.

    The defenseman left the ice and immediately headed to the trainer's room after getting tangled up with fellow youngster Mikko Rantanen. When speaking to the media Monday, head coach Jared Bednar didn't have any additional information regarding the injury, but expect an update to be given ahead of Tuesday's tilt with Los Angeles.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Assists twice in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/17) Zadorov assisted on both goals in a 5-2 loss Tuesday to the visiting Sharks.

    The 21-year-old had just a single assist in 16 games prior to this one, so it was nice to see him make an impact on the scoresheet despite the outcome. The 2013 first-rounded has an ugly minus-17 rating and only eight points in 44 games, making him expendable for fantasy purposes in the vast majority of formats.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Chips in assist against Canucks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/17) Zadorov collected a power-play assist during Monday's loss to Vancouver.

    While it was just the sixth point -- all helpers -- of the year for Zadorov, he's started seeing more ice time and power-play looks of late. Over his past four games, the 21-year-old defenseman has averaged 21:39 of ice with 2:53 on the man advantage. Until the offensive numbers begin adding up, the extended role hardly makes a fantasy ripple, though. Zadorov is nothing more than a player to watch in deep keeper/dynasty settings.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Will play Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/21/16) Zadorov will draw back into the lineup Monday against the Blue Jackets, Terry Frei of the Denver Post reports.

    The young defenseman had played in every game this season before being held out as a healthy scratch in the team's last game against Minnesota. He hasn't done much outside of his 20 PIM, recording just two assists, 12 shots on goal and a minus-5 rating while averaging 17:18 of ice time. With that in mind, those in pretty much every format -- including daily contests -- would be wise to look elsewhere for fantasy value until Zadorov shows some signs of life.
