Playing career

Zamuner played junior hockey for the Guelph Platers of the Ontario Hockey League and was drafted 45th overall by the New York Rangers in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. He played only briefly for New York, spending more time on their AHL affiliate in Binghamton.

In 1992 he signed as a free agent with the expansion Tampa Bay Lightning when the Rangers showed little interest in re-signing him. In Tampa he developed a reputation as a competent, hard working, defensive-minded forward, and was named team captain in 1998. The next year he was traded to the Ottawa Senators for Andreas Johansson and the right to sign General Manager Rick Dudley, who was still serving as GM of the Senators. He played in Ottawa for two seasons, playing regularly on the third line in a defensive role. In 2001 he moved on, signing as a free agent with the Boston Bruins.

During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, Zamuner went to play with HC Basel in Switzerland. With his scoring deteriorating, no NHL team willing to sign him he stayed in Europe the next season, signing with Bolzano HC in Italy. On June 6, 2006, Zamuner signed to play the remainder of the 2006 season with the Brisbane Blue Tongues of the Australian Ice Hockey League, after which he retired.

Internationally, Zamuner played twice on Canada's world championship teams, and surprised many by being selected for Canada's 1998 Olympic men's hockey team.

Post-playing career

Zamuner is currently employed with the NHLPA as their Northeast Divisional Representative.
