Zadorov and the Vancouver Canucks managed to beat the Flames 4-3 last night. He admitted before the game it would be a bit weird to play against his former team so quickly after the exchange.
"It'll be awkward, but when we go on the ice, there's no friends."

"...it was an unbelievable two and a half years. I've enjoyed every part of the city, the fans, the people. My teammates were the best part of it. Hopefully they won't hit me too hard tonight."

It will be interesting to see if he signs an extension with the Vancouver Canucks. If their strong play continues, there's no reason why he wouldn't.
