A 6’9”, 256 pound behemoth, Zdeno Chara is one of the most feared fighters in the NHL and in a pinch, he could just take his skates and slice off a zombie’s head.
The 6’6”, 240 pound Giancarlo Stanton was a three sport star as a kid, and he’s one of the biggest, strongest athletes in any sport in the world.

Every zombie fighting team needs a leader, and there may not be a better general in all of professional sports than Steve Nash.
