Known for his offensive contributions from the blue line, Zalapski had several seasons where he posted impressive point totals, especially during his time with the Hartford Whalers.
In addition to his NHL experience, Zalapski had a significant international career. He represented Canada in various tournaments, most notably at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, where he was part of the Canadian national team.
Brian Boucher was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. He began his NHL career with the Flyers, where he quickly made a mark during his rookie season by helping the team reach the Eastern Conference Finals in 2000.
