Zolnierczyk made his NHL debut last season playing in 37 games with the Flyers, registering three goals and three assists for a total of six points.
The 24-year old endeared himself to the Philadelphia fan base by displaying a quick and scrappy style of play that appeared to put team before self. It also didn’t hurt that the few goals he did score were highlight reel gems, most notably, his first career goal in his first career NHL game against the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 18, 2011.
With the two-way nature of the contract, it’s almost all but certain that the Toronto native will be starting (and playing the majority of) the 2012-13 season with the Flyers AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.
With Zolnierczyk taken care of, Jakub Voracek and Marc-Andre Bourdon remain the only restricted free agents yet to come to terms with Philadelphia.
