*UPDATE* Looks like Tom is off to Freiburg of Germany’s 2.Bundesliga.

Tom Zanoski wore the jerseys of six different teams during the 2009-10 season. In 2010-11, the Ontario Hockey League grad has held the total to two, both in the same organization. Zanoski has, so far, split the current season between the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League and their ECHL affiliate, the Gwinnett Gladiators.

Zanoski played four seasons in the Ontario Hockey League from 2001-02 to 2004-05. Tom began his OHL career with the Owen Sound Attack and stayed with them until midway through the 2003-04 season when he switched to the Mississauga IceDogs. In 2003-04, the IceDogs made it to the Robertson Cup final before being swept by the Guelph Storm.

Tom had a two year stint with Dalhousie University after graduation from the Ontario Hockey League. The culmination of his university career came with a Gold Medal at the 2007 Universiade in Turin, Italy.

Zanoski is currently in his fourth year of professional hockey. He spent his first season with the Stockton Thunder and with exception to a three game stopover with the Dayton Bombers in 2008-09, has been with the Gwinnett Gladiators ever since. This past season, 2009-10, Tom was a frequent call-up to the AHL, appearing with the Binghamton Senators, Albany River Rats, Lake Erie Monsters, Toronto Marlies and Syracuse Crunch.

This season, Tom has spent more time with the Lake Erie Monsters than the Gladiators but currently is on the Gwinnett roster.

Tom Zanoski also appears in a previous post at OHL Alumni Central listing the OHL graduates who played for the Lake Erie Monsters during the 2009-10 season.
