$Signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Hurricanes in June of 2018. The deal is worth $650,000 in 2018-19 and $700,000 in 2019-20.
Hit with 20-game suspension

Suspension
October 17, 2019
Zykov has been suspended 20 games for violating the terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Zykov's suspension won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only notched seven points in 35 games over the past two campaigns, but it will definitely test the Golden Knights' depth up front, as he's been a fixture in the team's bottom six thus far this season. The 24-year-old Russian will be eligible to rejoin the lineup Nov. 29 against Arizona.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2014
Zykov was one of several AHL call-ups to get an extended look with the Hurricanes during the final few games of the 2017-18 regular season. For his part, Zykov showed well, racking up three goals, four assists and a plus-5 rating over that final 10-game stretch. The Canes then proceeded to sign the 23-year-old Russian to a two-year, one-way deal in June, making him a good candidate to earn a full-time roster spot with the big club in 2018-19. Zykov led the AHL in goals last season with 33 in 63 games, so he should be a good fit on a mediocre Hurricanes squad that needs all the scoring help it can get.
Zykov's a strong, puck-possession forward who isn't afraid to go to the net. His second year in the QMJHL might not have gone as well as some were hoping, but he still put up 63 points in 53 games and then added 22 points in 22 playoff games for good measure. He's certainly worth keeping an eye on in dynasty formats, but won't impact the Kings for a few more years.
