Del Zotto (lower-body) has been activated from IR; will make his season debut on Saturday.
Del Zotto has missed the first 12 games of the regular season, but will be in the lineup on Saturday. The 26-year-old, who will be paired with Shayne Gostisbehere, had 13 points (4G / 9A) in 52 games a season ago.

Del Zotto is expected to miss at least the first month of the regular season, so his move to IR simply opens up a roster spot for an extra player to make the Flyers roster out of training camp. Del Zotto’s injury means that rookie Ivan Provorov will play huge minutes to start his NHL career.
Del Zotto will miss 4-5 weeks with a lower-body injury.

Del Zotto left Saturday’s game, but was able to return and finish the game. Despite being able to finish the game, he will be held out of tonight’s game in New Jersey. Brandon Manning will take over for MDZ.

With Kimmo TImonen out indefinitely after being treated for blood clots, the Flyers were seeking help on the blueline. They sign the 24-year-old, who had three goals and 13 assists (16 points) in 67 games between the Rangers and Predators. The former first-round pick (20th overall in '08) has seen his play slip in the last few seasons, but comes to Philadelphia on a low-risk one-year deal.

The Rangers had been trying to move Del Zotto for awhile now, but finally pulled the trigger this afternoon. Del Zotto carries a $2.55 million US cap hit but is a pending restricted free agent at the end of the season. Del Zotto has regressed since his 2011-12 season when we saw him total 41 points (10G / 31A) in 77 games. He has developed some bad habits in his own end of the rink which the Predators will attempt to fix. He has 11 points (2G / 9A) with a minus-5 rating in 42 games this season.
