Zach Tsekos is a Montreal, QC native. He joined Florida at the beginning of this past season, marking his third season as a professional. He played in 27 games before sustaining a season-ending injury. He joins the Dundee Stars in the ten-team EIHL based in Scotland for the 2024-25 season, and the Everblades will retain his rights should he return to play in North America.

I write for and photograph the Florida Everblades for ITR. I am a retiree that has turned my hobby of photography into a business. I currently live in Sarasota, Florida with my wife, Christy, but I'm originally from California. My previous career has taken me all over the US and the world and I definitely enjoy traveling. I've played hockey for over 30 years, learning as an adult, and love the game.
