Travis Zajac

Travis Zajac (born May 13, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently playing for the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected 20th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils and made his NHL debut on October 6, 2006 when the New Jersey Devils beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4–0. He scored his first NHL goal in his second NHL game on October 7, 2006, a 3–1 loss to the Dallas Stars. On April 19th 2009 Travis Zajac would score his second career playoff goal and lift the new jersey devils to a 3-2 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes in Carolina and would give the Devils a 2-1 lead in the series. He centered the Devils' second line with fellow University of North Dakota alumnus Zach Parise (they were not teammates at North Dakota) on his left and Jamie Langenbrunner as his right wing. The line was referred to as the "PZL" or "ZZ Pop" line by many Devils fans. For the 2008-09 NHL Season, Travis will again centre the "ZZ Pop" Line, reunited with Parise and Langenbrunner. He is of Polish ancestry and his last name (originally Zając) means hare in Polish. The rumour around the practice arena is that practical joker...
