He had a HUGE start to the season, netting way more than a PPG in the first 10 or so games, after that he was on a bit of a cold streak. He's scored a couple of goals in the past two games though, so he's started to pick it up again (25 games, 9+10). A small problem with the second line has been the fact that they haven't found a center who would be able to feed the wingers, so a vast majority of the chances the second line creates come from strong individual performances from either Zaborsky or the other winger Patrick Yetman. Both of those guys are fast wingers with good hands but neither one is really able to create chances for each other.
Eventhough Ässät have an option year with him (2012) I'd say it's very likely he's generated some interest in the KHL. I'm hoping he stays with Ässät, but the SM-Liiga organisations are usually willing to let the players leave if that's what they want and to me Zabo seems like a guy who wants to compete at the highest level possible.
