‘I Hated the Game Last Year,’ Real Jason Zucker Finally Arrives for Penguins (+)



Pittsburgh Penguins, Jason Zucker

In just a few months, Jason Zucker will celebrate the third anniversary of the Pittsburgh Penguins finally acquiring him. The Penguins first traded for Zucker in the summer of 2019, but Phil Kessel vetoed the deal. On Feb. 10,  2020 former GM Jim Rutherford finally got his man, and Zucker’s Penguins odyssey began.

This season, Zucker is celebrating finally arriving with the Penguins. He saluted past Penguins great Jaromir Jagr and got a chirping video in return. And the opening stanza of the 2022-23 season has been Zucker’s best stretch with the team.

By a wide margin.
