Highlights and interviews from Jones v Zatkoff in Manchester

Former Kings goaltending prospect Jeff Zatkoff left the club in July, signing as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins organization.

Last night, he made his return to Manchester – where he had called home the last few seasons while spliting time starts with Martin Jones. The two developed quite a friendship and were even roommates at one point.

Now on opposite sides of the ice, Zaktoff and his Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins defeated the Monarchs.  As an added bonus for Zatkoff, he picked up the shutout – stopping all 33 shots he faced.

Here are some game highlights followed by comments from Monarchs coach Mark Morris, Jones and Zatkoff…

Recently, many Monarchs players have been on the MayorsManor radio show -check out the free replays at the links below:
