Michael Del Zotto Playing With Confidence In Philadelphia

from MArc Narducci of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

Del Zotto now has seven points (3 goals, four assists) in his last eight games.

“I thought he played a really good game,” coach Craig Berube said. “He’s doing an all-around great job.”

Then Berube expanded on the subject.

“He is playing against top lines, defending well and that’s the biggest thing for me,” Berube said. “You know, he’s defending well and then he’s jumping in the play when he can and making good plays with the puck.”

Del Zotto, who turns 25 in June, says this is possibly the most confidence he has had as an NHL player.. He was with the Rangers beginning in the 2009-10 season until being traded to Nashville on Jan. 22, 2014.

In the offseason he signed with the Flyers.

“In the past couple of days the coaching staff has showed a lot of trust in me, throwing me in all situations, the first penalty kill, power play, 5-on-5,” he said. “Anytime that happens it helps with your confidence and it’s going well right now”.
