While the Philadelphia Flyers continue fighting for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, their defensemen and ice time leader this year, Michael Del Zotto, will be off the ice for three to four months after wrist surgery.
While Zotto hasn’t played since February 13 during the team’s loss to the New Jersey Devils, this week it was released that Zotto would require ligament surgery on his injured wrist.
According to General Manager Ron Hextall, the hockey injury didn’t occur at any one moment. “It’s been an ongoing thing,” he said in regards to Del Zotto’s injury.
Del Zotto, 25, has four goals and nine assists in 51 games for the Flyers.
