Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Zach Bogosian
Zach Bogosian was born on July 15, 1990 in Massena, New York and played his junior hockey for the Peterborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League. While with the Petes, Zach would make a name for himself as a solid all-around defender and was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers , third overall in the 2008 NHL entry draft.

Showing much promise, Zach made the Thrashers out of his first training camp and never one to shy away from the spotlight, in his first NHL game, he dropped the gloves with heavyweight Donald Brashear.

Though his first season in the NHL was cut short because of a broken leg, Bogosian managed to appear in 47 games for Atlanta and establish himself as a force on the Trashers back end.

Prior to the 2011-12 season, Bogosian and the rest of the Thrashers moved to Winnipeg to become the Winnipeg Jets.

In Bogosian's seventh year with the Jets organization, he was traded, along with Evander Kane and Jason Kasdorf, to the Buffalo Sabres for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia, Brendan Lemieux, and a first round draft pick.

On the international stage, Bogosian has represented the United States once at the 2009 IIHF World Championships, leading the U.S. to a fourth place finish.
