At only 23 years old and with parts of three NHL seasons already under his belt, Zettler was arguably the Minnesota North Stars' biggest loss to the Sharks in the 1991 dispersal draft. He was viewed as a solid prospect for the Stars' aging blue line. While he didn't put up mind-blowing numbers during his career, he did hang around for 14 NHL seasons, retiring from the Washington Capitals in 2002. He has worked as a coach and television analyst since and currently serves as an assistant for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
