Zac Rinaldo (born June 15, 1990) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger currently playing for the Philadelphia Flyers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Minor HockeyEdit

Rinaldo grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and played his minor AAA hockey for the Hamilton Reps, Cambridge Hawks, Notre Dame Hounds, and Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs of the OMHA.

Junior HockeyEdit

After his minor midget season with the Jr. Bulldogs, Rinaldo was drafted as an after thought by the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors of the OHL in the 14th round (270th overall) in 2006. He spent the following season with the Hamilton Red Wings Jr.A. club in 2006-07 before suiting up for the Majors in 2007-08.

Philadelphia FlyersEdit

Rinaldo was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 6th round (178th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a three-year entry level contract with the Flyers on August 11, 2009.[1] Rinaldo started the 2010–11 AHL season playing with the Flyers' top AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

Rinaldo made his NHL debut on April 22, 2011 in Game 5 of the first round of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Buffalo Sabres despite having more suspensions (4) than goals scored (3) for the Phantoms in the 2010-11 season. He again made the line up for Game 1 of the conference semi-finals versus the Boston Bruins, registering 2 shots.

At the conclusion of the Flyers training camp in October 2011, Rinaldo made the Flyers' opening night line-up, sharing enforcing duties with veteran Jody Shelley. Rinaldo receives fourth line duty centered by either Maxime Talbot or, more frequently, by fellow rookie Sean Couturier.

Rinaldo signed a two-year contract extension worth $1.5 million on April 17, 2013.
