Zadorov Ready To Get To Work

Colorado defenseman joins the club after signing a two-year contract

"I told [Avs general manager Joe Sakic] in July that I'm not planning on going to the KHL," Zadorov said. "It's not what I want. I want to play in the best league in the world."

Even the lure of playing for his home country in February's Winter Olympics couldn't sway him.
