News: Zacha could be headed to the KHL after agreeing to contract terms with Avangard Omsk, Igor Eronko of Sport-Express reports. Still, Devils general manager Ray Shero remains confident a deal can be worked out for the restricted free agent, telling reporters, "I think we can get something done, hopefully, but I can't control what he does. If (the KHL) is the route he likes, it's going to be a long road back to the NHL," Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.
Impact: Zacha put up decent numbers last season, as he managed 13 goals and 12 helpers in 61 outings, but still had to spend some time in the minors. The 22-year-old will be hard pressed to secure top-six minutes, especially after the club drafted rookie phenom Jack Hughes with the No. 1 overall pick. If the sides can't work something out soon, look for Zacha to finalize his KHL deal.
