Nikita Zadorov is expected to take on a larger role with the Chicago Blackhawks this coming season.
Analysis: Zadorov is projected to be a shutdown defender for the Blackhawks, while providing leadership and mentorship for the team's younger blueliners. "When I see the coach trusts me and puts me in those situations, putting me against the best players in the world, it's definitely a pleasure for me," Zadorov said. "That's what gets me going." The 24-year-old defender already has 356 regular-season games under his belt, but feels there is "lots of potential ahead" of him.
