Paul Zanette (born April 8, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for HCB South Tyrol in the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL).

Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Zanette previously signed with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League for the 2011–12 season, subsequently splitting the year between the IceHogs and the Toledo Walleye.[1]

With no substantial North American offers, he opted to continue his career in following his Italian heritage, with HC Asiago of the Serie A.[2]

After two successful seasons with Asiago, Zanette left as a free agent, along with brother Marc, to sign an initial trail contract with fellow Italian club HC Bolzano, who competed in the Austrian EBEL on August 9, 2014.[3] Zanette completed his trial and was signed to a one-year contract whilst Marc departed.
