"Why?" Because I said so. Here's where you're going to start: it's an article by Cam Charron at The Leafs Nation.

The issue with Zigomanis last season was his save percentage on-ice on the penalty kill was .800, so he was very unlucky in that regard last season. Coupled with a single assist, his visual statistics were pretty poor last season, even if his underlying numbers weren't. He didn't play much last season, but he had good high-quality scoring chance numbers. For a team lacking in depth at centre, with limited cheap options available, Zigomanis is a viable third-line candidate, who does all the little things right that the media love: he kills penalties, he's a 30-year old NHL veteran among the youngest team in the league, and Don Cherry loves the guy.

Now, read.
