So, this is the Jason Zucker that former Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford chased for almost a year before finally getting the LW on Feb. 10, 2020. Zucker brings energy, intense puck pressure, a bit of grit, now a fair amount of points, and apparently a lot of mouth, too.
On Tuesday night, he stood barefoot in front of his locker stall. There was a shortage of Pittsburgh Penguins to chat with the media, and Zucker made a late appearance. Zucker had not yet stopped yapping, chirping, mocking, teasing, and trash-talking after the Penguins’ 3-2 win over intense rival the New York Rangers.
Zucker began by poking fun at the Penguins’ PR staff for not protecting him from the media.
