Top Nikita Zadorov News

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Dealt with cracked ribs

    Zadorov played through cracked ribs during the playoffs, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    Zadorov was still able to play in all 12 playoff games, racking up three assists, 32 hits, 24 PIM and 13 blocked shots. The 27-year-old had a career-best 22 points with 181 hits, 106 shots on net and 77 PIM in 74 regular-season outings. A pending free agent, Zadorov is unlikely to see more than a third-pairing role regardless of where he signs for 2022-23.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Picks up helper Thursday

    Zadorov notched an assist, three blocked shots and two hits in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Oilers in Game 5.

The 27-year-old enjoyed a career year with the Flames with 22 points, 181 hits, 77 PIM and a plus-11 rating as a fixture on the third pairing. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer if the Flames choose to let him walk.

    Zadorov had a lead pass to Mikael Backlund, who then set up Andrew Mangiapane's go-ahead goal at 10:38 of the third period. While limited to a third-pairing role, Zadorov's been effective at what's expected of him -- physicality and defense. He has two assists, five shots on net, 14 hits, six PIM and a plus-3 rating through five playoff contests.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Lends helper in loss

    Zadorov posted an assist, six hits, two blocked shots and two PIM in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 3.

    Zadorov picked up his first postseason point since logging three goals and two assists in 15 playoff outings with the Avalanche in 2019-20. The 27-year-old has also provided physical play, earning 10 hits and four PIM in three playoff contests this year. He's a fixture on the Flames' third pairing, so Zadorov's place in the lineup should be fairly secure.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Tickles twine Saturday

    Zadorov scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Canucks.

    Mikael Backlund won a faceoff, and Zadorov didn't wait long to fire in a shot from the half-wall. The 27-year-old defenseman has a goal and three assists in his last five outings as he continues to thrive in a third-pairing role. For the season, he's at four tallies, 20 points, 103 shots on net, 175 hits, 71 PIM and a plus-10 rating through 71 contests.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Deals assist in win

    Zadorov had the secondary helper on the first of Johnny Gaudreau's two goals in the game. Zadorov has earned three assists in his last two outings, but that burst of production likely won't last long. He's at 19 points, 100 shots on net, 169 hits, 67 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 68 contests.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Earns 100th career point

    Zadorov logged two assists, three shots on goal, three hits, a plus-3 rating and two PIM in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Coyotes.

    Zadorov's 100th career point came on an Andrew Mangiapane tally in the second period. The 27-year-old Zadorov then got to No. 101 pretty quickly, as he set up Elias Lindholm later in the frame. He's mainly more of a physical presence -- Zadorov reached the 100-point mark in his 478th game during his ninth campaign. The blueliner is at 17 points, 167 hits, 98 shots on net, 65 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 67 outings this season.

    Zadorov notched an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 4-2 win over the Coyotes.

    Zadorov collected the puck and sent in Johnny Gaudreau for a goal on a partial breakaway. The assist ended a nine-game point drought for Zadorov, who posted 24 hits and 14 PIM in that span. The 26-year-old defenseman has been a good fit for the Flames' third pairing with 16 points, 85 shots on net, 142 hits, 61 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 57 contests, but his appeal remains limited to deep fantasy formats.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Fills stat sheet

    Zadorov logged an assist, four shots on goal, four hits, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Zadorov was productive again Tuesday, and he also had a hand in Adam Ruzicka's third-period tally. This was Zadorov's third assist in his last four games. The Russian defenseman is up to 12 points, 58 shots on net, 95 hits, 36 blocks, 38 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 39 contests. The offense won't always be there, but the 26-year-old will regularly make a physical impact.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Adds apple Saturday

    Zadorov notched an assist and two shots on goal in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.

    Zadorov helped out on an Andrew Mangiapane tally in the second period, which stood as the game-winner.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Productive in blowout win

    Zadorov recorded an assist, two blocked shots, a pair of shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Golden Knights.

    Zadorov did a little bit of everything Wednesday, most notably making the breakout pass that eventually led to Matthew Tkachuk's third-period tally. That assist snapped a four-game point drought for Zadorov. The Russian blueliner is up to 10 points, 51 shots, 88 hits, 33 blocks, 34 PIM and an even plus-minus rating in 36 contests. He's been steady as a third-pairing defenseman, but he's unlikely to be of much help in fantasy.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Offers helper in win

    Zadorov posted an assist, four hits and a plus-3 rating in Wednesday's 6-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Zadorov set up Andrew Mangiapane's tally in the second period, which gave the Flames a 2-0 lead. With a goal and two assists in his last two games, Zadorov is on a rare surge of offense. The Russian blueliner has just nine points with 74 hits, 43 shots on net, 30 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 31 contests overall. He'll likely continue to play on the third pairing, but don't expect his scoring to stay at this level for long.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Two points in Monday's win

    Zadorov scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, went plus-2, levied two hits and blocked a pair of shots in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blues.

    This was a pretty full stat line for Zadorov, who looked like a sniper as he picked out a corner for the Flames' first goal. He also helped out on Johnny Gaudreau's late second-period marker. Offense isn't a big part of Zadorov's game, but he's managed eight points in 30 appearances. The Russian blueliner has added 42 shots on net, 70 hits, 28 blocked shots, 30 PIM and a minus-1 rating, but he's unlikely to play above the third pairing.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Chips in with assist

    Zadorov notched an assist and three blocked shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Panthers.

    Zadorov helped out on Blake Coleman's goal midway through the first period. The 26-year-old Zadorov has two assists in his last three outings. The Russian blueliner doesn't add much on offense -- he's picked up six points, 49 hits, 23 blocked shots and 33 shots on net in 24 contests this season. He'll remain in a third-pairing role and could occasionally face competition from Michael Stone for playing time.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Snaps drought with helper

    Zadorov posted an assist, three shots on goal and three hits in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Kraken.

    Zadorov set up Johnny Gaudreau's first-period tally. The 26-year-old Zadorov also got loose on a shorthanded breakaway late in the first, but he couldn't convert. The defenseman is more of a physical presence, as his helper Thursday was his first point since Nov. 18. The Russian has five points, 48 hits, 30 shots on net, 12 PIM and a plus-2 rating in 22 contests.
