Pineault was drafted 46th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Pineault originally was a product of the U.S National Development Program. He then played collegiate hockey in 2003–04 with Boston College before moving on to the Moncton Wildcats of the QMJHL.
Pineault made his professional debut in the 2006–07 season with the Blue Jackets affiliate, Syracuse Crunch. Pineault made his NHL debut in the 2007–08 season on April 3, 2008, against the Detroit Red Wings.
On January 10, 2009, Pineault was traded by the Blue Jackets to the Chicago Blackhawks for Michael Blunden. He was then assigned to the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League for the remainder of the 2008–09 season.
Unable to attract an NHL contract the following season and a free agent, Pineault left for Europe and signed during the 2009–10 season to trial with HC in the Czech Extraliga on November 2, 2009. After appearing in ten games with Pardubice, Pineault established himself offensively and was offered a contract to remain on the team on December 8, 2009. Adding a physical presence and scoring 10 goals and 20 points in 31 games as a role player, Pineault was given an extended multi-year contract to stay in the Czech Republic on May 14, 2010.
