  • Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Returns to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/20/18) Zadorov (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

    Zadorov, who underwent shoulder surgery this offseason, had been wearing a non-contact jersey during training camp prior to Thursday's session. Now that he's been cleared for contact, the 23-year-old blueliner will presumably get into the lineup for a preseason game in the near future, and should be back to 100 percent in time for Colorado's Oct. 4 regular-season opener against Minnesota.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Could miss training camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/7/18) Zadorov is recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, The Denver Post reports, adding that the defenseman is in danger of missing training camp.

    While Zadorov and teammate Patrik Nemeth are both rehabbing shoulder injuries this offseason, the Avalanche reportedly have enough depth on the blue line to compensate for their potential absences. However, the Russian added career highs in points (20), PIM (103), hits (278) and blocked shots (106) last season, so the team obviously will be hoping he doesn't miss too much time.

    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.
