Michael Del Zotto D PHI Aug 11 '78
Michael Del Zotto will play for Rapperswil of the Swiss National League A during the NHL lockout.
"It's gotten to the point now where I need to play," he told the Hockey Central @ Noon panel on Wednesday. "It just doesn't look like we have a willing negotiating partner right now, and that's frustrating." He'll join Ottawa's Jason Spezza on the roster and is hoping to "do some damage" with him. Del Zotto began the lockout as a restricted free agent, so he will be looking for a new deal once the NHL returns to action.
