Silver Nuggets: Moonlighting Edition

I can't wait for the Silver Nuggets: Die Hard 2: Die Harder Edition - USA TODAY Sports

Sadly, this post isn't in honour of the classic 80s dramedy starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. Happily, it is in honour of Mika Zibanejad, Ottawa's 20-year-old hope for the future and his second career as a DJ. He'll be performing Friday night at the Junxion on George Street in Ottawa and it's for a good cause - proceeds go the Boys & Girls Club of Ottawa!

So in honour of DJ Z-Bad, a look at some other Senators who have moonlighted over the years:

  • Eugene Melnyk: producer, Law & Order
  • Jared Cowen: Comedian, see stand-up and sitcom work
  • Robin Lehner: motivational speaker/threatener
  • Erik Condra: Defense Attorney
  • Colin Greening: Hip Hop back-up dancer
  • Chris Kelly/Erik Condra: SWAT sharpshooters
  • Pascal Leclaire: Contortionist
  • Anton Volchenkov: Crash Test Dummy
