Travis over at Broad Street Hockey described Mr. Z as nothing more than a chippy, speedy fourth-line energy guy. He's a $600K cap hit (versus Rosehill's $550K) and will be restricted free agent at the end of the season.
Playing a majority of his time with the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL, Zolnierczyk appeared in 52 games and scored 9 goals and 8 assists on 105 shots. His plus/minus is a beauty at a minus-17. In comparison, Rosehill played in 33 games for the Admirals, with 16 shots on goal he earned 4 goals and 4 assists and was a minus-1. From reading Shawn's recaps, this guy beat the crap out of everyone that challenged him.
Zolnierczyk recently made headlines for earning himself a four game suspension for destroying Ottawa's Mike Lundin. (He and Perry should get along swell.)
My guess is he's headed straight for Norfolk.
My hunch is correct...
