BLOG: Zacha Back and Ready to Go

Pavel Zacha has returned to the team after being away with visa complications

by Sara Giles saratgiles /

Pavel Zacha missed most of the preseason due to visa complications but is finally back in Jersey for the rest of training camp. He hasn't played in an exhibition game yet, but will be in the final game of the preseason this Friday against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and is excited to get back on the ice. 

"I was really excited the whole time I was in Canada. It's great to be back practicing with the team, flying with them and spending time with them. It's just great to be back with new faces and making new friends. Just seeing all of the other guys and spending time with them," said Zacha. 


Zacha doesn't feel that he is behind after missing most of camp and thinks a few more practices and an exhibition game will get him ready for the new season. 

"I am happy I'm having a good skate, they are hard skates, but it'll probably take me a few more practices to feel 100%," said Zacha.
