Michael Del Zotto previously played for Nashville but this year he will be making the long trip over to Philadelphia in order to play for The Philadelphia Flyers for one year. The defensemen has been added to the team as a early replacement for the famed Kimmo Timonen. Mr. Timonen being one of the best defensemen in the league who is now currently being hospitalized due to a series of blood clots in his lower right leg as well as both of his lungs. The Flyers aren’t sure if Kimmo will be able to play for the first half of the season or if he will even be able to play at all in the 2014-2015 Season. In order to ensure themselves that they’d have a powerful defensemen they hired on Michael Del Zotto for a one year term.
Mr. Del Zotto was a first round pick for the New York Rangers back in 2008, he played with the rangers for five seasons where he then moved to Nashville to play for the predators. He played with the Nashville Predators for one year. Throughout his years as a professional hockey player he has had twenty six goals, ninety five assists and 121 Points during the 292 games he’s played. He is considered to be one of the stronger defensemen in the league but he nowhere near the level of Kimmo Timonen which can prove to be an issue for the Flyers come the beginning of the 2014-2015 season.
Either way you can expect some great moments from The Philadelphia Flyers this upcoming season.
