Playing career[edit | edit source]
Undrafted, Vigilante was an Ontario Hockey League priority Selection for the Plymouth Whalers in the 11th Round (209th) in 2001. Vigilante was named the team captain of the Plymouth Whalers at the beginning of the 2005–06 OHL season. He represented the Whalers at the 2006 OHL All-Star Game, held in Belleville, Ontario. His season was cut short with a broken finger, after blocking a shot by the Barrie Colts, as they surged looking for a tying goal at the end of a game. Out for a month, "Vig" returned for the final three games of the regular season to help Plymouth win the West Division.
On July 8, 2008, Vigilante was signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets to a one-year deal. He was then assigned to affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, where he played with former Plymouth Whaler teammates Jared Boll and Tom Sestito. Midway through the 2008–09 season on February 21, 2009, Vigilante was re-assigned by the Blue Jackets when he was loaned to the Quad City Flames for the remainder of the season.
Vigilante is a 2003 graduate of Edsel Ford High School in Dearborn, Michigan.
On September 11, 2009, Vigilante signed with the Grand Rapids Griffins, the Detroit Red Wings AHL affiliate. After appearing in one preseason game, Vigilante was released from his tryout contract with Detroit and assigned to the Griffins.
