Zakhar Bardakov is a 23-year-old prospect from Seversk, Russia who stands 6-foot-2, 198 pounds. He was drafted by the Devils in the seventh round of the 2021 NHL Entry Draft at 203rd overall after a solid showing in the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) with Vityaz Podolsk. He scored eight goals and added three assists for 11 points through 44 games.

This season, Bardakov is playing in the KHL with SKA St. Petersburg having scored six goals and added six assists for 12 points through 51 games.

This trade adds depth to the Devils’ lineup heading toward the postseason. They have been struggling a bit this season so I wouldn’t expect this to be their last move before the trade deadline.
