Zachery Stortini (born September 11, 1985) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger. He is currently playing for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms of the American Hockey League ). Stortini was chosen in the 3rd round, 94th overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He plays a physical game and is known as an enforcer.
He made his first NHL appearance on January 20, 2007, against the Calgary Flames. Stortini was a -1 and received a 10 minute misconduct penalty in the third period of his first game. Stortini was leading the American Hockey League (AHL) in penalty minutes at the time of his call up. He was brought up to add some toughness to the Oilers after they had been banged around in the previous few games. The Oilers also wanted a "heavyweight" in their line up to go against Calgary Flames tough-guy Eric Godard. He was sent back to the Hamilton Bulldogs after the game, but later was recalled. Stortini appeared in 29 regular season games for the Oilers during the 2006–2007 season. He went on to win the Calder Cup that season as a member of the Bulldogs.
Stortini scored the first goal in Iowa Stars (AHL) franchise history.
He signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Nashville Predators on July 5, 2011. Shortly after the beginning of the 2011–12 season, Stortini was placed on waivers by the Predators on October 11, before he was reassigned to AHL affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals.
With limited NHL interest, Stortini signed a one-year deal as a free agent to return for a second tenure with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL on September 21, 2012.
On July 7, 2013, Stortini regained NHL interest and was signed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Anaheim Ducks.
