Zeiler! Zeiler! Zeiler!
John Zeiler is not a particularly good ice hockey player. If the NHL didn’t have 30 teams, he wouldn’t be on an NHL roster. He’s the kind of player that brings fans together… to goof on him. And after wearing #73 the last few seasons… this year, Zeiler is rocking #13.
Shoot from the knee!
I’ve never understood what Andy Murray, John Torchetti (whoops… Zeiler didn’t play for them, that was Jeff Guilano.. same difference) Marc Crawford and now Coach Murray liked about Zeiler’s play. Sure, he’s an “energy” player, but most of the time he misses the player with a check and hits the boards instead… at top speed of course. And he usually jumps in the air to make those checks. So if he does hit the player… it’s a charging call.
It figures that the one time Zeiler actually connects with a body… he gets suspended.
