Really excited to announce that PUCKLAND, a docu-series airing in late March on NBC Sports will be using five Zambonis tunes throughout the series. Puckland is about the journey of minor league players trying to get to the NHL and also about the challenges to get professional hockey back in Portland, ME. Check your local listings.
The third time the fine folks at NHL on NBC have reached out to us to write an original piece for them. This time they needed a song with good energy for the New YEar and a rockin chorus. We gave them “New Years Goals”
We are very excited to join our dear oldish pals Guster at the beautiful College Street Music Hall in New Haven CT on January 12th 2018. Also on the bill is the sweet and amazing Mates Of State. We like to call them Mates Of Skate. Tickets are selling fast so grab them quick. Ps GET THERE EARLY or you will miss us and The Mates. CLICK HERE FOR TICKETS

For the past 4 years we have been happily getting the fine Paul Lukas attending our shows when we play in NYC. Who is Paul Lukas some may ask?
Just sports journalism’s foremost uniform reporter, ESPN.com columnist since 2004 and the man behind one of our favorite blog sites in the world titled Uni-Watch.com Like us, Paul likes the details of things, some can say we are both a bit obsessive but we know we are simply “extremely focused”. NOW THE TEASER: We have something special planned that should happen around November-ish involving we Zambonis and Paul/Uni-Watch. CANNOT WAIT! STAY TUNED

As many of you may have heard, local HS senior and star-goalie, Charlie Capalbo, had recently been diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. It has truly been amazing to see this incredible community rally around him & support him and his family in this trying time. On Saturday, 4/29, The CAPALBO STRONG BENEFIT HOCKEY JAMBOREE! was had and it was INCREDIBLE. Family, friends, strangers, Mike Richter (NYR) Deb Placey (NJ Devils) Zambonis and so many more all chipped in to raise over $40,000 to help Charlie and his family get through all the hurdles ahead. PUCK CANCER!
We put the foil on and now, we can take it off. When our old friend Rob Perez from the show #DistilledTV admitted he never saw the classic Slapshot, he quickly went on NEtflix to watch it. SHOCKINGLY< it was not available. He immediately contacted us and together we slapped into action. We started a campaign to #SAVESLAPSHOT We reached out to our funny/famous hockey friend #ErikStollhanske from #SuperTroopers #Beerfest and so much more. He jumped on our Zamboni & we quickly had a movement. #Slapshot Is now available on Netflix! We would like to thank everyone who Shared and Liked and Retweeted and especially those who picked up the phone and called Netflix to tell them to please get this in the cue or else.
A special thank you to the legendary stars of the classic film and our friends #THEHANSONBROTHERS who can still intimidate with the best of them.
