A distant memory now, but there was a time when Zack Stortini was cherished by Oilers fans (okay, at least some of them) and Barons fans alike. The Barons first round playoff exit might have been a tad swifter if it hadn’t been for the gritty play of Stortini. He brought to the table a strong dose of fight, tenacity, and well-weathered hockey play. For this, we are grateful.
As Stortini has since moved on, his legacy of fan interaction will live on. In the brief time on the farm he embraced the fans. His smiles and autographs were aplenty. And for this the fans will never forget him and always wish him luck.
Best of luck to you Storts!
