Wasn't even so much Zadorov finishing his check, it was like the Plymouth forward skated into a brick wall. In a subsequent shift, another Plymouth player tried to goad Zadorov into a fight but he maintained his composure. As the refs were sorting out the penalties, Zadorov slowly skated by the Plymouth bench and gestured at them. I loved it.

Tough to get a read on him offensively during that game. He picked up an assist on Horvat's PP goal but that was more of an individual effort from Horvat scoring on the rush. Zadorov had a heavy wrist shot, but never seemed to get it on net. But he certainly did seem fluid for a 6'5 D.

Best case: Braydon Coburn?
Worst case: Vitali Vishnevski?
I'm sold.
