Jason Zucker’s good hockey friend defenseman Deryk Engelland of the Calgary Flames is now with the NHL Vegas Golden Knights.
Jason and Deryk each summer skate in a Firefighters charity game at the Sobe Ice Arena on North Rancho Drive. Both sign sticks and jerseys which are auctioned for charity on game night and they each sign autographs for the fans who pack into the arena. It’s been a big summertime event for the past several years.
Deryk is listed at 6’2, 215. He is from Edmonton, Canada. He has a home in Las Vegas.
Jason’s best hockey friend is teammate Charlie Coyle who was the best man at the wedding of Jason and Carly.
Jason – the first Las Vegas player in the NHL – is staying with the NHL Minnesota Wild this coming season. The Wild put him on its protected roster list.
