On March 26, 2015, the Chicago Blackhawks signed Paliotta to two-year contract,[1] and on April 11, 2015 he made his NHL debut skating against the Colorado Avalanche in the Blackhawks' final game of the 2014–15 regular season.[2] Paliotta was among the Blackhawks train on squad during the playoffs, in which the Blackhawks claimed their third championship in six years.

His tenure with Chicago was short-lived as on June 30, 2015, he was included in the trade of Brandon Saad to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Jeremy Morin, Marko Dano, Artem Anisimov, Corey Tropp and a fourth-round draft pick in 2016.[3]

After one season with the Blue Jackets, and having completed his entry-level contract, Paliotta was not tendered a qualifying offer to remain with the club. As a free agent Paliotta was signed to a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Rangers on July 1, 2016.[4] He spent the duration of the 2016–17 season, with AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack.

On July 14, 2017, Paliotta signed as a free agent to a one-year AHL contract with the Toronto Marlies.[5] He appeared in 8 scoreless games with the Marlies to start the 2017–18 season before he was traded to the Texas Stars on January 11, 2018.[6]

Paliotta went un-signed from the Texas Stars over the summer, before agreeing as a free agent to a one-year AHL contract with the Stockton Heat, affiliate to the Calgary Flames on September 14, 2018.[7]
