Del Zotto Learned from Tough Season

delzottoAndrew Gross at Rangers Rants was able to speak with Michael Del Zotto about his injuries and struggles this season…

“My finger is still healing, it’s been almost 12 weeks, hopefully it’ll be good to go in another week and a half,” Del Zotto said. “The hernia surgery went well, it’ll take 3-4 weeks to heal up. I’m doing some cardio stuff, no lifting but I’m getting back into a routine and getting a workout. It kind of put an exclamation point on how the year went. It was a tough one. I learned a lot physically and mentally. I learned a lot about how I have to play to stick with New York. The biggest thing is, no matter what, keeping that confidence. I know I can help this team. I’m confident of my ability and what I can do on the ice. I have to have that mindset.”

…i still can’t figure out why Rangers fans want to trade this guy. He’s 20-years-old and has all the tools to run the Rangers power play for the next decade. And from the above comment it sounds like he’s learned from last year’s struggles.

Gross adds that Del Zotto’s had a couple of conversations with assistant general manager Jim Schoenfeld since the end of the season but has not spoken with coach John Tortorella since he was sent down to the AHL for the second time on Feb. 27.

…would have liked Torts to have maybe reached out to Del Zotto at some point to discussion last season and what he needs to work on this summer. But that’s just me.
