On top of his duties as center for the Anaheim Ducks, Ryan Kesler is the host of "Between Two Zambonis" an online talk-show parody in which he gets to know his teammates.

Kesler is preparing to represent Team USA at the World Cup of Hockey 2016, and his talk show was picked up nationally by ESPN. In the first episode, Kesler gets to know some of his Team USA teammates ahead of their World Cup opener against Team Europe on Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET; ESPN2, SN, TVA Sports), and it's hilarious.
