News: Zadorov will stay with the Sabres for the foreseeable future, reports the Olean Times Herald. Impact: Head coach Ted Nolan said Zadorov has "earned his keep" and will remain with the Sabres past the nine-game mark, which will come against the Sharks on Tuesday. The saga has finally come to a conclusion, as Zadorov spent the first part of this month wondering where he would play for the duration of the season. With Josh Gorges (lower body) out of the lineup, Zadorov has stepped in and played in seven straight games. Though he has tons of potential, he's off the short-term fantasy radar given his inexperience, potentially inconsistent playing time and the Sabres' mediocrity in general.(RotoWire, )

News: Zadorov is set to play his fifth straight game Tuesday when the Sabres take on the Blues, The Buffalo News reports. He's expected to continue pairing with Rasmus Ristolainen. Impact: Zadorov, the 16th pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, found himself in the press box a number of times at the start of the season, but he's getting some much-needed experience now. Playing with the equally promising Ristolainen seems to be a good move, as this team is going nowhere this season. We still don't know whether the Sabres plan on keeping Zadorov in Buffalo all season, but at least he's getting some run lately instead of wasting away in a suit.(RotoWire, )
