Philadelphia Flyers GM Ron Hextall expects Michael Del Zotto to bounce back after a rough 2013-14 campaign.
Del Zotto went from recording 41 points in 2011-12 and 21 points in 46 contests during the shortened campaign to scoring just three goals and 16 points in 67 games last season. In addition to his production declining, he saw his role with the Rangers reduced substantially and a trade to Nashville wasn't enough to turn his season around. The Predators didn't even think he was worth a qualifying offer to retain his rights, but Philadelphia eventually offered him a one-year contract in August. "We look at a young player like Michael Del Zotto coming into the NHL at his age," Flyers GM Ron Hextall said. "He has a lot of money. He's got fame, he's got people wanting to spend time with him and thinking he's a big deal. Any 20-21-22 or 23-year-old, it's pretty easy to get off the rails. I think that is what happened to him. I think in two years, he will look back and say, 'it was the best thing that ever happened to me. I regained my focus and what is important.'" Sep 2 - 12:15 PM
