  • 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.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Notches second goal Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/17) Zadorov had a strong outing against the Flames on Saturday, scoring his second goal of the season, blocking six shots and dishing out three hits.

    The 22-year-old has the potential to be a great fantasy contributor, but we haven't seen much from him this season. Zadorov has aided fantasy goers with 28 PIM, but has managed just four points through 17 contests. He was a healthy scratch for three games recently and hasn't been seeing power-play time. Zadorov has been a solid goal scorer at the many levels he's played at thus far and is still capable of being a producer for the Avalanche. His contributions in a variety of fantasy categories at least make him worth owning in some deeper leagues right now.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Healthy scratch Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/11/17) Zadorov will be replaced in the lineup by Andrei Mironov on Saturday afternoon, when the Avalanche play the Senators in Sweden, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.

    Zadorov has imposed his physical will on opponents with five PIM and 10 hits over his last three games, but he's been a bit of a defensive liability, as evidenced by a minus-3 rating over that span. You should leave the Russian on the virtual waiver wire until he shows any semblance of a guy who can help out in fantasy land.

    Avalanche's Nikita Zadorov: Back in action Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/4/17) Zadorov will return to the lineup Saturday night against the Flyers, Marc Moser of Altitude Sports 950 reports.

    After watching the last three games from the press box, the Russian will tag back into the lineup and likely assume a spot on the third pair with Anton Lindholm. There's a lot that Zadorov -- who was originally a 2013 first-round (16th overall) draft pick by the Sabres -- needs to prove to coach Jared Bednar and fantasy owners alike. His two points through eight games this season haven't helped a whole lot.
