Canucks trade for Zadorov

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired defenceman Nikita Zadorov from the Calgary Flames for a fifthround pick in the 2024 NHL draft and a third-round pick in 2026 in a trade . Zadorov is expected to make his Canucks debut Saturday against his former club at the Saddledome. The six-foot-six, 248-pound Russian has a goal and five assists in 21 games this season. He has 42 goals, 90 assists and 599 penalty minutes over 588 career NHL games with Buffalo, Colorado, Chicago and Calgary. The 28-year-old Zadorov, from Moscow, was selected by the Buffalo Sabres in the first round, 16th overall, at the 2013 draft. The Flames didn’t retain any of Zadorov’s $3.75-million (U.S.) salary to make the deal.
