Calgary Flames defenseman Nikita Zadorov responded that in North America, in the context of geopolitical events, they have a negative attitude towards the Russians.
“I don’t like the reaction of people in the United States. Now they are putting all the Russians in the same bag. I think all this is unfair. In Russia many people think the same as me. I am 100% sure that millions of my compatriots have the same opinion. They just can’t do anything about what’s happening. They can’t leave the country and find a good job in the United States or Canada, earn money here and feed their families. “I’m very lucky to have the right to be here,” The Hockey News quotes Zadorov as saying.
Last season, Nikita Zadorov appeared in 82 NHL regular season games, scoring 14 goals and seven assists with an overall rating of +10. For 10 years playing in the NHL, Zadorov played 567 games and scored 126 (41+85) points with a utility coefficient of “+12”.
