Mike Zigomanis is a Canadian center on the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Zigomanis was drafted by Buffalo in 1999, but did not sign a contract with the Sabres, and was re-drafted by Carolina in 2001. He saw his first NHL action with Carolina in 2002-03, and spent parts of the next few seasons between the AHL and the Hurricanes’ NHL roster. He played 2 games with St. Louis in 2005-06, but saw his first regular NHL action with the Phoenix Coyotes. In 2006-07, he played 75 games, compiling 14 goals and 23 points. He saw his ice time tail off in 2007, playing only 33 games, but was traded to Pittsburgh at the beginning of the 2008-09 season, where he has been one of the Pens’ top faceoff men.
Zigomanis played for Team Canada at the 2001 World Junior Championships.
