Teal Tinted Glasses 50 – Prospect Scrimmage with Zakk
Teal Tinted Glasses 50
Ian, Hockey Jerk, and Zakk DeVine sit down to talk about the recent Sharks summer prospect scrimmage. We looked at who impressed, who didn’t, and who might threaten for roster spots this fall. We discuss the shake-up in the Sharks hockey ops department and what it means going forward. Also discussed was the extension for Dylan DeMelo and what it means for Tim Heed.
My thanks to Zakk
At the end of the podcast, Zakk announced that he was hanging up his skates when it came to covering the game. I want to thank Zakk for the countless hours he gave to Pucknology/Teal Town USA and Teal Tinted Glasses over the last few years. I met Zakk on Twitter when I released a Sharks prospect rankings on Pucknology. He critiqued some of my rankings and seeing the body of work he had done in prospect coverage it was amazing to get his insight on my list. It was not long after that I invited Zakk to come on a show and was ecstatic when he said yes.
I remember thinking at the time that this was not a guy who was going to waste his time on us. I am so thankful that I was wrong about that. Zakk became someone I consider a close friend and changed the way that I watched hockey, especially at the Jr. level. Sometimes this hobby can be pretty cutthroat, but Zakk was always willing to share his knowledge and advice on the way. Zakk did everything the hard way by putting in the time and effort to get his work out there culminating with a spot on The Athletic and should be an inspiration to anyone who aspires to collect a paycheck in this business.
Thank You, Zakk, and if you so choose there is always an empty chair waiting for you on Teal Tinted Glasses
