1/22/2014 2:12:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have traded defenseman Michael Del Zotto to the Predators for defenseman Kevin Klein, according to Darren Dreger of tsn.ca.
Insight: Del Zotto did not earn the favor of new coach Alain Vigneault and was made a healthy scratch on many occasions this season. In 42 games, he has played a career-low 17:45 and generated two goals and 11 points in 42 games. The Predators have Shea Weber, Roman Josi and Seth Jones and aren't going to use Del Zotto on the power play, so he'll have limited fantasy appeal.
 
11/20/2013 6:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto will play Wednesday, according to the Bergen Record.
Insight: Del Zotto has been a healthy scratch in three straight games and could soon be traded. He won't be worth owning if he remains on the Rangers; he was replaced by Ryan McDonagh on the top power-play line.
 
10/29/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto logged his first point of the season Tuesday against the Islanders.
Insight: He assisted a Benoit Pouliot goal in the third period. Del Zotto had 37 points in 2009-10, 41 points in 2011-12 and 21 points in 46 games last season, but he went the first eight games without a point this season.
 
10/19/2013 3:45:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is out for Saturday's game against New Jersey. SOURCE: The Bergen Record
Insight: It looks like he'll be a healthy scratch. Head coach Alain Vigneault liked the defensive pairings New York used Wednesday in Del Zotto's absence and he's going to stick with them for at least one more game. Del Zotto hasn't posted a point yet in five games this season.
 
10/16/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto (flu) will miss Wednesday's game.
Insight: He didn't make the trip to Washington with the team. John Moore will take Del Zotto's place on the Rangers' top power-play line, reports the Bergen Record.
 
10/15/2013 2:13:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto didn't travel with the team to Washington due to flu-like symptoms.
Insight: He could still make it, but given his slow start (zero points, -6 rating), fantasy owners should probably sit him out for a while.
 
6/13/2013 10:06:00 PM
Description: New York defenseman Michael Del Zotto underwent hernia surgery on Thursday. SOURCE: The Bergen Record
Insight: He should be back to normal in about four weeks. Del Zotto led all Rangers defensemen with 21 points during the regular season.
 
3/19/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto had a shorthanded goal, one assists, three SOgGand a plus-2 Tuesday against the Devils.
Insight: Del Zotto has three goals and 12 points in 27 games, slightly behind last year's pace of 10 and 41 in 77 games.
 
2/28/2013 2:36:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) participated in Thursday's optional skate, according to the Bergen Record, but his status for Thursday is still uncertain.
Insight: Del Zotto has missed the last two games with a hip injury. He's the best fantasy option out of New York's top-four blueliners.
 
2/26/2013 5:41:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto will miss Tuesday's game with a hip injury.
Insight: Del Zotto has put up seven points in 16 games after a career-best 10 goals and 31 assists last season. He is the best fantasy option out of New York's defensive rotation.
 
2/26/2013 11:58:00 AM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is probable for Tuesday's game against Winnipeg. He practiced Monday. He's been dealing with a hip injury.
Insight: Del Zotto has put up seven points in 16 games after a career-best 10 goals and 31 assists last season. As long as he participates in the morning skate, you should put him back in your lineup.
 
2/23/2013 6:41:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto (hip) will miss Saturday's game. SOURCE: Steve Zipay, Newsday
Insight: Del Zotto has put up seven points in 16 games after a career-best 10 goals and 31 assists last season. His absence will mean more power-play time for Dan Girardi and Marc Staal.
 
2/23/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is questionable for Saturday's game against Montreal with a hip injury.
Insight: Del Zotto has put up seven points in 16 games after a career-best 10 goals and 31 assists last season. He'll be a game-time decision.
 
1/29/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto factored in on both of New York's goals in a 2-1 win over the Flyers Tuesday.
Insight: Del Zotto scored his first goal of the season and had a power-play assist, his fifth assist of the season but first with the man advantage. Del Zotto is the Rangers' best fantasy defenseman.
 
1/27/2013 11:11:00 AM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto had a pair of assists Saturday to help New York come back from a 2-0 hole to beat Toronto 5-2.
Insight: Del Zotto is the Rangers' most-used defenseman on the power play, but all four of his assists this season have actually come at even strength. The Rangers only have two goals on 22 power-play opportunities this season (9.1 PP%, 27th in NHL); once they start picking it up with the man advantage Del Zotto should produce even better numbers. He's a must-own defenseman.
 
1/13/2013 12:06:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto has agreed to "tentative terms" with New York and is expected in camp on Sunday. Aspects of the contract are still being hammered out. SOURCE: Bob McKenzie, TSN
Insight: Del Zotto was a mid-level defenseman last season, placing 155th overall in standard scoring Yahoo! leagues, 21st at the position. Initial reports said that a deal wasn't expected to get done prior to training camp, leaving the blue liner's status in jeopardy for the start of the season.
 
1/7/2013 2:46:00 PM
Description: Rangers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is listed as questionable for the start of the season while dealing with a sore back.
Insight: Del Zotto just returned from playing in the Swiss League and said he believes he will be fine with a few days rest, according to a Craig Custance report. Del Zotto set career highs last season in goals (10), assists (31), shots (113), penalty minutes (36) and had a solid +20 plus/minus rating. When healthy he's a top fantasy defenseman.
 
5/3/2011 2:49:00 PM
Description: Michael Del Zotto underwent sports hernia surgery on Tuesday. TSN
Insight: Del Zotto is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Even though he has some power-play upside, MDZ was held to just 11 points in 47 games this season.
 
1/3/2011 4:48:00 PM
Description: The New York Rangers have sent defenseman Michael Del Zotto to Hartford of the AHL and have recalled defenseman Ryan McDonagh. TSN
Insight: Del Zotto has just 11 points (2g-9a) in 35 games and was recently a healthy scratch for the Rangers. He is in the midst of a sophomore slump, so look for another defenseman if he still happens to be on your roster.
 
1/3/2011 3:02:00 PM
Description: Del Zotto returned for the first time in four games but was a non-factor in Sunday's loss to Florida.
Insight: The defenseman was twice a healthy scratch in his four-game absence. He doesn't rank in any category this season. (RapidDraft.com)
