  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Buries goal in return

    Zadorov scored a goal and added two PIM in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Zadorov returned from a two-game suspension Thursday, which stemmed from an illegal check to the head he delivered against Lucas Raymond in a previous meeting with the Red Wings. The 28-year-old Zadorov got his revenge in a productive manner Thursday, tallying his first goal since Nov. 10 and first point since Jan. 15. The defenseman has two goals, 11 points, 55 shots on net, 108 hits, 48 blocked shots, 85 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 49 appearances between the Canucks and the Flames this season.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Available Thursday

    Zadorov has served his two-game suspension and is eligible to play Thursday against Detroit.

    Zadorov is currently mired in an eight-game pointless streak dating back to Jan. 15 against Columbus. In fact, the blueliner has yet to score for the Canucks this season with his only goal of the campaign having come while he was still a member of the Flames. Mark Friedman figures to be dropped from the lineup with Zadorov back in action.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Receives two-game suspension

    Zadorov has been suspended for two games for his illegal check to the head on Lucas Raymond during Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Red Wings.

    Zadorov also received a match penalty due to the incident, which occurred at 4:11 of the second period. The defenseman has four assists, 60 PIM, 62 hits and 29 blocks in 27 contests this season. Zadorov will be eligible to return Thursday for Vancouver's rematch against the Red Wings. In the meantime, Mark Friedman will likely draw into the lineup.

    Zadorov (undisclosed) will be back in the lineup Monday against the Rangers, according to Canucks' rinkside reporter Kate Pettersen.

    Zadorov, who missed Saturday's 6-4 win over New Jersey, will replace Noah Juulsen in the lineup. The 28-year-old Zadorov has generated two assists, 26 PIM, 15 shots on goal, 16 blocked shots and 20 hits in 14 games with the Canucks since being acquired from Calgary.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Won't play Saturday

    Zadorov (undisclosed) won't play Saturday versus the Devils, per Thomas Drance of The Athletic.

    Zadorov, who is considered day-to-day, will be replaced in the lineup by Carson Soucy, who was activated off long-term injured reserve Saturday after recovering from a lower-body injury. The 28-year-old Zadorov has two assists, 26 PIM, 15 shots on goal, 16 blocked shots and 20 hits in 14 games with the Canucks since being acquired from Calgary.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Notches assist

    Zadorov recorded an assist and went plus-3 in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Senators.

    Zadorov had a helper in his Canucks debut Dec. 2, but he'd gone 11 games without a point since. He snapped the slump Tuesday, assisting on a J.T. Miller tally in the first period. Zadorov has handled a similar role in Vancouver as the one he had in Calgary to begin the season. He's at eight points, 39 shots on net, 59 hits, 35 blocked shots, 49 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 34 appearances.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Grabs helper in team debut

    Zadorov recorded an assist, two blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Flames.

    Zadorov's first game as a Canuck was also a return to Calgary, just two days after the Flames traded him away. The 28-year-old blueliner ended his Flames tenure on a seven-game point drought, but he was able to get on the scoresheet by setting up Elias Pettersson's empty-net goal in the third period to seal Vancouver's win Saturday. Zadorov has seven points, 41 hits, 21 blocked shots, 29 shots on net, 23 PIM and a minus-4 rating over 22 appearances this season. He was listed on the third pairing alongside Tyler Myers in this contest, but both Zadorov and Myers are filling top-four roles on the ice for the Canucks.

  • Canucks' Nikita Zadorov: Dealt to Vancouver

    Zadorov was traded from the Flames to the Canucks on Thursday in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2024 and a third-round pick in 2026.

    Zadorov reportedly wanted a trade out of Calgary, where he's been stuck in a bottom-four role this year, and now he's gotten his wish. He'll land in an excellent situation with the Canucks, where he can be penciled into a second-pairing role once he joins the team. Zadorov has picked up six points, 29 shots on net, 41 hits, 19 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a minus-6 rating over 21 outings with the Flames this year, which was his third season with the team. Jordan Oesterle should see more time with the Flames going forward, while Mark Friedman and Noah Juulsen figure to lose playing time for the Canucks.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Nabs helper

    Zadorov posted an assist and four shots on goal in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens.

    Zadorov saw 20:30 of ice time Tuesday, his third highest mark of the season, and the first time he's been over 20 minutes in a close game. The 28-year-old recently requested a trade, with playing time being a major factor in that decision. He's up to six points, 22 shots on net, 26 hits, 14 PIM, 12 blocked shots and a minus-5 rating through 14 outings.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Scores Friday, requests trade

    Zadorov scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Zadorov made waves in a couple of ways Friday. He scored the second-period marker that sparked the Flames' comeback, only for Kevin Weekes of ESPN to report after the game that the defenseman has requested a trade out of Calgary. The 28-year-old is seemingly unhappy with being stuck on the third pairing. He's produced a goal and four helpers to go with 17 shots on net, 24 hits, 10 blocked shots and a minus-6 rating through 12 contests in 2023-24.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Collects helper

    Zadorov posted an assist, two blocked shots, two shots on goal and two PIM in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Kraken.

    Zadorov missed Wednesday's game versus Dallas while attending to a family matter. He was back in his usual third-pairing role Saturday, and he earned an assist as one of his shot attempts was tipped home by Yegor Sharangovich early in the third period.

He's yet to score a goal while adding 15 shots on net, 20 hits, nine blocked shots, 10 PIM and a minus-7 rating over 10 appearances.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Returning Saturday

    Zadorov (personal) is in the lineup for Saturday's game versus the Kraken, Brendan Parker of Flames TV reports.

    Zadorov missed Wednesday's game versus the Stars due to a family matter. That matter has apparently been resolved enough for the defenseman to rejoin the team. Look for Zadorov to play in a third-pairing role alongside recent call-up Nick DeSimone.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Not playing Wednesday

    Zadorov (personal) won't play Wednesday versus the Stars due to a family matter.

    The nature of Zadorov's family matter remains private, so it's unclear how long he'll be out. Jordan Oesterle will draw into the lineup Wednesday on the third pairing.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Draws assist in loss

    Zadorov logged an assist and two hits in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Red Wings.

    Zadorov got on the scoresheet for the first time since Opening Night with the secondary assist on Yegor Sharangovich's second-period goal. Through six outings, Zadorov has two assists, nine shots on net, 12 hits, seven blocked shots, six PIM and a minus-6 rating. He'll likely see an increase in ice time over the duration of Rasmus Andersson's four-game suspension, which began Sunday.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Picks up helper Wednesday

    Zadorov posted an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Jets.

    Zadorov set up MacKenzie Weegar's first-period tally. It's unlikely Zadorov comes anywhere near repeating his 14-goal 2022-23 season, but he's reached the 20-point mark in each of the last two years. With Oliver Kylington (personal) again out of action, Zadorov could see some second-pairing usage as a physical shutdown defenseman. The 28-year-old had 21 points, 174 hits, 80 PIM and 130 shots on goal last year.

  • Flames' Nikita Zadorov: Ends season with hat trick

    Zadorov recorded a hat trick on five shots, added two hits and went plus-3 in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    Zadorov scored all of the Flames' goals in their season finale. Prior to this contest, he'd never had a multi-goal game in his career. The 27-year-old blueliner finished 2022-23 with a career-high 14 tallies but fell one point short of matching last year's 22 after notching just seven assists this season. The big defenseman added 130 shots on net, 174 hits, 80 PIM and a plus-10 rating, finding some success as a physical shutdown defender.
