Here's a preliminary list I made using hockeydb. Each player has played in at least 100 NHL games:
Miles Zaharko Travis Zajac Zarley Zalapski Rob Zamuner Greg Zanon Richard Zednik
Larry Zeidel Valeri Zelepukin
Richard Zemlak Henrik Zetterberg
Rob Zettler Peter Zezel Alexei Zhamnov Nikolai Zherdev Alexei Zhitnik Sergei Zholtok (rip) Marek Zidlicky Mike Zigomanis
Rick Zombo Sergei Zubov Dainius Zubrus
Mike Zuke Andrei Zyuzin
The italicized players are currently active in the NHL or Europe. The bolded players are the players I believe should be included in this poll. My choice right now would be Zubov. Maybe Zetterberg down the road. If you eliminate current players, I would go with Zhamnov, with Zezel as a close 2nd.

Zubov but when I was 7 or 8 years old and Valeri Zelepukin was an Oiler, all my friends were huge fans of his name just because to us it was Zele-puke-in. Ah...to be in grade 3 again He was pretty good for an 11th round pick. A couple 20+ goal seasons and I think he hit 60 points once or twice.
