Mika Zibanejad is already an accomplished hockey player, but his second career as an EDM DJ and producer got a big boost over the weekend thanks to world famous DJ and producer, Tiesto.

Tiesto included one of the New York Rangers center's tracks in his set at the Summerburst festival in Stockholm. The festival was expected to draw more than 15,000 people.

Zibanejad posted the clip of Tiesto spinning his yet untitled and unreleased track to Instagram with a caption that said it was a "dream come true."

Zibanejad plans to release the track next year. He has previously released "Moves," in May, "Nobody" in 2018, "Forever" and "Can't Go Back Home" in 2017. Zibanejad took the stage at the Summerburst festival stop in Gothenburg in June.

"During the summer you miss the adrenaline rush from hockey, if you win, score a goal or anything like that," he told NHL.com in June. "You get it again while DJ-ing. It's something you miss, and it's nice."
