  • Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Opens scoring in Thursday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/13/18) Zadorov scored the Avalanche's opening goal in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Predators in Game 1.

    Playing in his first NHL playoff game, the 22-year-old gave the Avs a 1-0 lead with his first-period tally, but the Preds slowly took control after that. Zadorov posted career highs in goals (seven) and points (20) in the regular season, but he was held off the scoresheet in his final 10 regular-season games, and Thursday's goal could end up being the highlight of the postseason for him.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Nets sixth goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/5/18) Zadorov scored a goal and posted a plus-2 rating in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Predators on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old seems to be experiencing a breakout season. He already had a career high in goals before Sunday, and even though he's still a minus-1 after this performance, that's a big improvement from his minus-20 rating last season. Zadorov also has more points (18) in 60 games this season than he did in 78 games the previous two seasons combined (17).

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Collects assist Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/12/18) Zadorov recorded an assist and a minor penalty during Sunday's 5-4 win over Buffalo.

    Zadorov has settled into a consistent shut-down pairing with Erik Johnson. The Russian has begun 62.1 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone while logging 2:17 of penalty-kill time per game this season, so it's difficult to rely on him for offensive contributions. Zadorov has just 15 points through 50 games for the campaign, after all. There are settings where his 52 PIM and 166 hits tilt the fantasy scales, though.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Two assists in Saturday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/18) Zadorov picked up two assists, including one on Nathan MacKinnon's game-winner in the third period, during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Stars.

    The 22-year-old has seen his ice time spike since Tyson Barrie (hand) landed on the shelf, and Zadorov has responded with five assists and a plus-3 rating in his last six games despite a lack of power-play time. He's now only two points shy of his career high of 15 points, set as a teenager with the Sabres in 2014-15, but without man-advantage production to boost his numbers, Zadorov's fantasy upside will remain modest.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Collects two helpers in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/17) Zadorov recorded two assists during Friday's 4-3 overtime win against Toronto.

    The towering defender has quietly put together a respectable stretch with two goals, five assists, 18 shots, 10 PIM, 45 hits and 31 blocked shots through his past 16 games. In deep settings, Zadorov is a potential add because of his expanded role. Tyson Barrie (hand) is out long term, so Zadorov projects to continue logging big minutes and is currently paired with Erik Johnson on the top pairing.
