Nikita Zaitsev will be Thomas Chabot's defense partner for the start of training camp, per coach D. J. Smith. However, Ron Hainsey and Dylan DeMelo, who was Chabot's partner for most of the 2018-19 season, will also get their opportunities. "There's capable guys in Zaitsev, Hainsey and DeMelo," Smith said. "I know we've got Zaitsev to start training camp there. That doesn't mean there won't be changes. We'll see who fits well with who."
