Flames Defenseman To Test The Market

Johnny Gaudreau isn't the only UFA from the Flames set to hit the open market, as Nikita Zadorov will be as well.

Zadorov's lone season with the Flames was a solid one, there should be interest around the league in his services. In 74 games on the year, he scored four goals and recorded a career-high 22 points. With that, he was as physical as ever, as his 181 hits show perfectly.

Teams looking for more size on their blueline will definitely have to consider Zadorov. When at his best, he can also provide decent offense from the point, too. Alas, let's see who ends up signing the 27-year-old from here.
