A history of Michael Del Zotto and his saxophone

His wrist has healed, so he can play again!

Naturally, hockey players have interests outside of hockey. It's difficult to eat, breathe, and sleep just one thing; especially when that one thing is, ultimately, your job. Sure, it's fun - but people tend to need more.

Something else Michael Del Zotto is interested in? The saxophone - which, now that his wrist has healed, he can play again. Give him a listen!

Not bad with four months off, especially since it's only been about a year since he first showed us his sax.

Here's where it all began:

A couple of months later, we got a little more:

With the season starting back up, Del Zotto understandably went quiet for a while - at least until this offering, which came just a month before he injured his wrist, and had to put the sax on the shelf for four months.

Which brings us to his most recent offering: a return to music that's also special because it's the first time he's actually filming himself playing, rather than a black screen or a spot on the floor.

And it's awesome. Glad you're back, MDZ.
