He will take the body and battles hard along the boards. He uses his long reach well and is an effective pokechecker."

When Hunter learned Zadorov was interested in coming to North America, he traded with the Peterborough Petes to move up to the ninth spot in the 2012 CHL Import Draft to select Zadorov. After that, it didn't take much convincing to get the player into town.

Hunter likes Zadorov so much he compared him to a former teammate -- Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Robinson.
I remember Hunter talking up Gagner and Schremp as well back in the day as future superstars. Take that with a huge grain of salt.
