He ranked third among AHL rookies and tied for fourth among league defensemen in power-play points (7-20=27) in 2011-12, while setting career highs in goals (10), assists (27), points (37) and appearances (61).

Zolnierczyk, 25 (9/1/87), was acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for left wing Jay Rosehill on Apr. 1, 2013 and appeared in nine games with Norfolk (AHL), scoring 2-0=2 points with 14 PIM.
