“He’s a real good skater, I liken him to Darroll Powe a bit,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “He’s skates a lot like Darroll, he’s a hard-working kid who gets on top of people quickly. We’re excited to get him signed.”
Zolnierczyk is nearing the end of a three-year probation. He was sentenced in a Canadian court in June of 2008 to three years probation and given a conditional discharge for his role in a pornographic video involving an underage girl.
Holmgren said his probation did not affect him being drafted.
“He wasn’t a very big guy back then,” Holmgren said. “We had our eye on him last year and he wanted to finish school. He’s a good kid. He made a mistake as a young kid in life and he’s paid his dues.”
