Observations:

November 2015 – After a couple of modest KHL seasons, Dadonov had a very good 2014-15. He finished fourth in scoring for SKA St. Petersburg, behind the likes of Artemy Panarin (now with Chicago) and Ilya Kovalchuk. So far this season he sits third on the team in scoring. He'll turn 27 this summer, at which point he will become an unrestricted free agent by NHL standards. He signed a multi-year contract with his KHL team in 2014, but it's unconfirmed as to whether that contract ends in 2016 and he's free to leave the KHL. A natural goal scorer, he could be a 30-goal, 55-point player in the NHL under the right conditions. Dobber

 

July 2012 – The ‘Russian Factor’ struck again. Dadonov signed with Donbass of the KHL, a team that is one of three new member clubs of the ‘K’ which is based out of the Ukraine, that boasts some good former NHL talent and some very good prospects and has a strong history. This isn’t quite the end for Dadonov as he is only 23 years young, this may actually push forward his development as he will get big minutes in a top end role. Carolina did qualify him in order to keep his rights. Jason Banks

 

May, 2012 – Dadonov, is a highly skilled winger who has yet to see his offensive potential translate into a full season of production in North America. He was expected to make the Panthers roster out of training camp this past season, but after the Panthers spent a lot of money bringing in a variety of players, he spent the majority of the year playing in the AHL. He was later traded to the Carolina Hurricanes. Dadonov, is undersized but he does not let that take away from his physical game. He is not afraid to go into the dirty areas and throw his body around to get the puck.  Dadonov's speed, hands and quick release should land him a spot on the Hurricanes roster as a 2nd or 3rd line winger who can contribute on the power play.

 

Fantasy Outlook: C-

Dadonov is likely going to remain in the KHL, but we'll know for sure in the summer of 2016. A potential complimentary goal scorer for a playmaking center.
