Observations

May 2020 – Zub has signed a one-year entry level contract with the Senators. The 24-year-old was one of the top European free agent options this summer, and he was long rumored to be going to Ottawa. Zub is a reliable two-way defenseman with good size. He’s not afraid to play the body and he will also use his body to block shots. He has a good shot but his playmaking abilities are not as good. But he is expected to be NHL ready right away. He’s likely to start on the bottom pair and get some time on the penalty kill as well. That is also likely to be his long-term role at the NHL level. He could put up about 15 points with around 100 hits and blocked shots which makes him an option for deep multi-cat leagues but not much else.  Jokke Nevalainen
