Trevor Zegras needs to be mic’d up for every game.
The Anaheim Ducks’ forward was wearing a mic for his game against the San Jose Sharks on ESPN on Tuesday. The Ducks won a wild back-and-forth game by a 6-5 score in a shootout. The game even included Jakob Silfverberg sniping a shot past his own goalie.
Zegras was mic’d up for some hilarious moments on the ice Tuesday. The 21-year-old skilled forward appeared to be having the time of his life against the Sharks. One of the best mic’d up moments was an exchange between Zegras and San Jose backup goalie James Reimer.
Zegras came to the bench for a line change after hitting a Sharks player during his shift. The San Jose player was upset with Zegras, and the Ducks’ forward hilariously asked him, “What…because I hit you you’re upset? I’m 130 pounds”.

Here’s a transcript of the exchange:
Zegras: Ohh James!
Zegras: [speaking to the Sharks bench] What…cus I hit you you’re upset? I’m 130 pounds.
Reimer: Are you?
Zegras: [shaking head] 175
Reimer: Not bad
Zegras:…on a good day
Zegras was also mic’d up when he got hit hard into the glass from behind by Sharks forward Matt Nieto. “My tooth went into the glass!”, Zegras exclaims.
"My tooth went into the glass!" 🦷

Zegras also lost it when his teammate Adam Henrique scored a highlight-reel goal. Z’s usually the one scoring the pretty goals, so it was probably cool for him to see a teammate pull off a spectacular goal. Zegras’ reaction shows he was pretty stoked for Henrique.

The Ducks overcame a hat trick from San Jose defender Erik Karlsson to win 6-5 in a shootout. Zegras had an assist in the game to put him at eight points in 10 games on the season. His six goals lead all Ducks skaters.
Zegras has already been mic’d up twice on national TV this NHL season, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea to mic him up as much as possible the rest of the year. The NHL 23 Cover Athlete is always bringing laughs whenever he hits the ice.
