Zanon, a product of the University of Nebraska - Omaha, is well acquainted with Todd Richards, having played for Richards as a member of the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL.
Zanon is considered to be a defense-first blue liner. He has a knack for playing solid positional defense, taking the body and blocking shots, something the Wild sorely need.
