Ryan Kesler’s ‘Between Two Zambonis’ returns, Kevin Bieksa is his latest target

Ryan Kesler’s ‘Between Two Zambonis’ is back for a second season, and this time the Ducks center is taking aim at longtime teammate Kevin Bieksa. Bieksa has to answer the tough questions and even gets a pie in the face.

Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa have spent a decade as teammates. First, they played together with the AHL’s Manitoba Moose and, post-lockout, they both suited up for the Vancouver Canucks.

But in 2014-15, Kesler found himself in Anahiem playing for the Ducks. It just so happened, however, that the Ducks also coveted Bieksa and went out and acquired the blueliner this past off-season, reuniting Kesler and Bieksa, former roommates, once again.

Well, that familiarity has bred quite a relationship between Kesler and Bieksa, and it was on full display during the second season debut of Kesler’s “web series” ‘Between Two Zambonis.’ Come for the laughs between two good friends, stay for the jokes about Bieksa’s relationship with Corey Perry:

Bieksa’s explanation of his fight with Kyle Clifford is hilarious, and one that’s going to get some laughs in the dressing room once Perry sees the video. Awfully nice of Clifford to stick up for Perry, wouldn’t you say?

It’s great of Kesler to bring up the time Bieksa imitated him — when Bieksa pretended to be Kesler saying he said he had a distaste for Canada and Canadian hockey fans while both were playing in Vancouver — but the Ducks big off-season blueline acquisition didn’t take long to turn it around on Kesler.

It’s hilarious to watch the way the two longtime teammates interact with each other, but we’re excited at the potential of Perry being the next guest on the show.
