Have you seen Jeff Zatkoff’s Escalade?

Good feature by NHL.com on former Reign goalie Jeff Zatkoff, who is on fire for the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings’ American Hockey League affiliate. He talks about some of the lessons he gained in Ontario that have allowed him to post a 0.75 goals-against average and .978 save percentage to start the season:

“The biggest learning experience for me last year was playing on a nightly basis, not just on weekends like in college,” he said.

A close second in the life lesson department was to keep an eye on his vehicle. On the morning of April 1, Zatkoff awoke to find that his 2005 Escalade was missing from its parking space outside his apartment.

Since it was April Fool’s Day, he assumed he was the victim of a prank. Zatkoff pressed all of his teammates, but none ‘fessed up. Turns out the car was really stolen, and Zatkoff reported it to the police.
