From Nikita Zadorov’s Instagram account. As you can see above, he’s got some surgical scars there on his lower left jaw, which was broken in Thursday’s game with Nashville after he took a puck there.
The game should have been stopped, by the way, but the referees dangerously let play go on.
Big Z is a tough dude. I bet he’ll be back in a week or two. Well, if the doctors will let him, that is. He’ll wear a cage if need be.
