Silver Nuggets: Moonlighting Edition

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:
