Oliver Seitzinger started his career with the Vienna EV Juniors. He moved to Finland at the age of only 16 years. After spending some years with the junior teams of Ilves Tampere, Setzinger was nominated to represent Austria at the Salt Lake City Olympics. After supporting the EHC Linz in the Austrian Playoffs, Setzinger returned to Finland, to join his first full SM-League season with the Lahti Pelicans.
Setzinger is a good skater with fine balance and a great acceleration. He is a typical Nashville prospect, who works hard and has good hockey sense. Nice stick-handling and a very good shot. His physical presence and his good passing make him a good team player.
