Paul Zanette (born April 8, 1988) is a Canadian-Italian professional ice hockey player. He is currently playing under contract for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits of the ECHL. In 2011 Zanette was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year and was a selected as a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award.

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.

After his contract expired with Asiago, Zanette joined Scottish club, Edinburgh Capitals, of the Elite Ice Hockey League on a two-year contract.[4] During his first season with the Capitals, Zanette drew a close to his tenure in the EIHL after 35 games, opting to finish the season with previous club, HC Asiago.

On July 21, 2016, Zanette returned to North America in signing a one-year ECHL contract with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits.[5]
