News: Zadorov believes with a good training camp and a good showing at the Traverse City Tournament, he can make the Sabres' roster, reports Olean Times Herald. Impact: Zadorov openly admitted that his defensive positioning needs to improve to play in the NHL, though he did add that he learned a lot in his first year. The 19-year-old Russian defenseman is one of Buffalo's top prospects but faces tough competition if he wants to crack the lineup. In all likelihood, Zadorov will return to the OHL for his final year of major junior hockey. Other young defensemen vying for roster spots include Rasmus Ristolainen, Jake McCabe, Chad Ruhwedel and Mark Pysyk.(RotoWire, )
