The Ottawa Senators are still the front-runners to sign KHL defenseman Artyom Zub, reports TSN's Darren Dreger.

Zub, a 24-year-old right-handed shot, is coming off a season in which he posted a career-high 22 points in 57 games with SKA St. Petersburg.

His 2019-20 campaign prematurely came to an end after one playoff game as the KHL canceled the remainder of its season in late March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Zub has represented Russia on the international level in numerous events, highlighted by a gold medal win at the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang.
