Gross: Michael Del Zotto posts photo of gruesome neck injury

Regardless of what you did on New Year’s Eve, it’s safe to say your day was better than the one enjoyed by Michael Del Zotto. The Flyers defenseman was cut by a skate blade during his team’s game against the Colorado Avalanche. Del Zotto was forced to leave the game, but later returned sporting a nice row of stitches. If you were curious what the wound looked like, Del Zotto...

Michael Del Zotto a pleasant surprise for Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers don’t exactly have too many positives going around the locker room these days, outside of perhaps the offensive excellence of Jakub Voracek. They currently sit 13th in the lackluster Eastern Conference, and their 19 points on the year have them just three ahead of the lowly Buffalo Sabres. Nonetheless, there is at least one pleasant surprise for this...

Adult film star Lisa Ann puts Flyers' Del Zotto on blast

Porn star Lisa Ann has become well known among the sports community in recent weeks after she went on a date — and much more — with Notre Dame wide receiver Justin Brent. Apparently the 18-year-old freshman wasn’t the first athlete she dated, which has led to Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto being put on blast. Over the weekend, Ann took to Twitter in an...

The irony of the Flyers signing Del Zotto

Recently, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall talked about his team’s signing of former Rangers defenseman and scapegoat Michael Del Zotto to the NY Post. He basically chalked up Del Zotto’s struggles with the Rangers over the past two seasons to him being easily ‘distracted’ by the big lights of NYC since he’s a young player: “We look at continue reading...

Mailbag: Del Zotto and Girardi rumors; Surging Rangers; Playoffs and more

Received three good questions over the past few weeks, so hopefully I can provide three good answers as the Rangers continue to surge in the standings. Bruce Bennett/Getty Images North America Do you think the Rangers will trade both Dan Girardi and Michael Del Zotto? What can they bring back in a trade? This really depends on how the Rangers are playing both at the Olympic roster...

Could Del Zotto’s return to form represent a dilemma?

If Del Zotto finds form, can the Rangers afford to let him go? With Michael Del Zotto back in the line-up consistently and finally cobbling together some consistent form the likely trade suitors will increase as Del Zotto starts to rack up the assists (3 in his last 4 games). Of course, with Del Zotto improving in recent weeks (as has most of the roster) the Rangers stand to benefit...

Dan Girardi’s uncertain future could hold up a Michael Del Zotto trade

Dan Girardi’s struggles may extend Michael Del Zotto’s tenure in blue Despite all the recent trade rumors swirling around Michael Del Zotto, the young D-man may remain a Ranger beyond this year. I’ll spare you the argument that Del Zotto is still very young for a defenseman at just 23 years old, because frankly I don’t buy that as an excuse for his erratic play any more either...

Why the Rangers should consider moving Michael Del Zotto

Del Zotto has fallen on hard times in New York For anyone that watches NHL Tonight, this week you’ll have seen Darren Dreger discuss the Rangers apparently having had contact with ‘five or six teams’ interested in acquiring Michael Del Zotto. The moment Del Zotto’s regression offensively caught up with Alain Vigneault’s lack of trust in his defensive game, this kind of...
