Setzinger was selected by the Nashville Predators in the 3rd round (76th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. After a short-lived experience in the AHL, he moved to Switzerland in 2007, where he played with HC Davos and SC Langnau Tigers in the Swiss National League A before signing a one-year contract with an option for two more seasons with Lausanne HC in National League B in 2010.
He extended with Lausanne to a new three-year contract in December 2010. LHC and Setzinger went on to win the National League B title and to get promoted in April 2013, upsetting Langnau in the promotion-relegation game, after many unfruitful attempts including 2 promotion-relegation games lost to EHC Biel over 8 years spent playing in second division. In the 2013–14 season, he tallied 34 points in 50 games and contributed to LHC clinching a playoff spot in the Swiss elite league for the first time in the club's history.
After two successful seasons in Klagenfurt, Setzinger left as a free agent in agreeing to a three-year deal with fellow Austrian club, Graz 99ers, on July 4, 2016.
Setzinger took part in the 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2009 and 2011 IIHF World Championship as a member of the Austria men's national ice hockey team as well as the 2002 and 2014 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and Sochi.
