BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Going into the season, much of the focus was on the Sabres' other 2013 first round pick, Rasmus Ristolainen. After making his NHL debut Saturday, though, Nikita Zadorov is proving he has plenty of promise as well.
"I thought he played well," said Steve Ott. "I think anybody in any situation can look good for one game, but it's the consistency of being a professional and doing it on a nightly basis."
Zadorov only logged about 11 minutes of ice time Saturday. Sabres Head Coach Ron Rolston says he'll have to earn more.
"We're putting people in the lineup that can help us be successful, so if he can do that, he'll be in there," said Rolston. "He had a good start, and we're going to try and get him games."
