There was a lot of false information about Nikita Zadorov this summer, the biggest canard being that he might bolt to the KHL if his contract didn’t work out with the Colorado Avalanche.
Zadorov revealed in this EXCLUSIVE video that he told Avs GM Joe Sakic in July that he wasn’t going to go to the KHL, that he wanted to play “in the best league in the world.” It just took some time to agree on the final numbers, that’s all.
Zadorov, as BSN revealed last night, had his immigration paperwork worked out and is back with the Avs. He took a couple of minutes to talk about that and other things in the video below:
Zads won’t play tonight against Dallas, but he will be on the practice ice Friday.
