Gwinnett Gladiators Re-Sign Casey Pierro-Zabotel

DULUTH, Ga. – The Gwinnett Gladiators announced that they have agreed to terms with forward Casey Pierro-Zabotel.

Pierro-Zabotel will return for his sixth season in the ECHL after posting 28 points (7g-21a) in 36 games with Gwinnett last season. Prior to rejoining the Gladiators in mid-January, Pierro-Zabotel had a brief stint with the Lausitzer Foxes of the DEL2 in Germany, where he had 22 points (5g-17a) in 33 games.

Pierro-Zabotel led the Gladiators during the 2012-13 season in both goals and points, averaging over one point per game on his way to earning a spot on the All-ECHL First Team. In 66 regular season games, he contributed 75 points (22g-53a), and was a team high +19. A third-round selection (80th overall) by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, the British Columbia native spent two seasons in the Penguins organization with Wheeling and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Pierro-Zabotel furthered his tenure in the ECHL with Cincinnati and Bakersfield before finding a home with Gwinnett.

Over the course of his ECHL career, Pierro-Zabotel has 233 points (67g-166a) in 289 games. He has also played in 14 AHL games, split between the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Charlotte Checkers.

Prior to turning pro, the 6’2", 207-pound forward played in 190 British Columbia Hockey League and 121 Western Hockey League games. From 2004 to 2007 with the Merritt Centennials (BCHL), Pierro-Zabotel had 92 goals and 118 assists, and from 2007 to 2009 with the Vancouver Giants, he had 55 goals and 108 assists, averaging well over a point per game in both leagues.
