Remembering Peter Zezel

A fan favorite in Philadelphia and elsewhere during a career that spanned 873 regular season games and 131 playoff games in the NHL,  the late Peter Zezel would have celebrated his 50th birthday on April 22. Zezel died at age 44 in 2009 from a rare blood disorder called Hemolytic Anemia.
 
As a hockey player, Zezel was best known as a hard-working forward who excelled on faceoffs and was an underrated offensive player in the early part of his career. He compiled 219 goals and a respectable 608 points during his NHL career. 
 
Off the ice, Zezel was known as a caring, generous and fun-loving person whose greatest passion was teaching hockey and soccer to children. One of the most popular Flyers players of the Mike Keenan era, Zezel was a heartthrob among many young female fans with his matinee idol looks but also a highly respected player among all Philadelphia fans.
