The Chicago Blackhawks have never been that physical team in the NHL. Luckily Nikita Zadorov can provide a physical brand of hockey for the team.

Nikita Zadorov is not afraid to use his body on the ice. The new addition to the Chicago Blackhawks is 6’5″ and can provide the Blackhawks with something they have not had on the ice in a long time.
