Mats Zuccarello's brother signs with the Flyers

New, comments

The Valencia Flyers. Of the Western States Hockey League!

Mats Zuccarello has already had himself a pretty distinguished career for an undrafted player. He's already got 303 games played in the NHL; he's got 203 points to go with them. He's a half a point per game player in the playoffs. He'll be 29 to start next season, but he only just got his NHL career started when he was 23, only playing in New York.

Enter: his younger brother, Fabian. Fabian Zuccarello is also undrafted. Like Mats, he's a relatively small guy: 5'10 and 157 lbs. (Taller, but lighter!) He's only 19 years old, and has been playing hockey only in Norway to date.

He'll join his brother in the States next season, though. Well, kind of: he'll be on the opposite side of the country, as a member of the Valencia Flyers of the Western States Hockey League.

Fabian doesn't look to be quite the level his older brother, but it's still awesome that America will now have two Zuccarellos playing in it.
