He is a pure goal scorer – Period says Eels Elite team head coach Frankie Scarpaci. Zac dominates on the ice. He is lethal on the power play and equally deadly on the penalty kill where he not only completely suffocates opposing power play units by shutting them down, he scores short handed goals that break other team’s backs.
Zac has played 34 games this season. He has 27 goals and 27 assists for 54 points. Zac is just 3 goals shy of breaking that record of Eels alumni sniper Josh DELEZENNE who had 29 goals last season with 25 assist for 54 points in 40 games played. Now if you think that is impressive look at these stats:
Zac has a career total this far of 53 goals 69 assists in only 99 games for 122 total points. He surpassed DELEZENNE’s career total of 58 goals and 46 assists for 104 points.
Zac is even 7 points shy of breaking Eels Alumni Jonathan Carlson record who in 117 games scored 29 goals, 100 assists for129. Earlier this season, , Zac surpassed long time friend, Eels Alumni Alec Sanchez’s record , who in 116 games scored 31 goals and 88 assists for 119 points.
As GM I can tell you Zac does this without fan fare. He does it the way it is suppose to be done. Voted assistant captain this year by his teammates. He is a great leader on the ice and in the locker room. He scores like it is just another day at the office. He makes it look so easy. He is a workhorse in games, at practice and in the gym. He is a very determined and dedicated young man. He is a consummate competitor. When head coach Frankie called him about returning to the Eels this season, Zac did not give it a second thought. He is and has always been committed to the Eels. He has received quite a few looks this season form NCAA Men’s college hockey programs and no doubt we will see him playing college hockey next season.
