Flyers Prospect Breakdown: Brian Zanetti, LD, Langnau, NL

The Player

Brian Zanetti is a 21-year-old defense who was born on Mar. 15, 2003. He was drafted 110th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 4th round of the 2021 entry draft. At 6 foot 3 Zanetti looks like an NHL Defenseman. He is a slick skater, an extremely aware player. Who demonstrates leadership skills on the ice at times. The problem is he has been unable to put all those attributes together to date.  


Zanetti is nothing more at this point than a project. The Flyers will keep an eye on him but the likelihood of him ever wearing orange and black is slim.
