Michael Del Zotto’s Deal In Vancouver

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has signed defenceman Michael Del Zotto to a two-year, one-way contract worth an average annual value of $3,000,000.

"Michael is a mobile, playmaking defenceman who adds depth and scoring to our blue line," said Benning. "His ability to log big minutes and contribute in all situations will help our team be competitive every night."

Del Zotto, 27, ranked tied for second in goals (6) and tied for fifth in points (6-12-18) among Flyers defencemen during the 2016.17 season. His 6.7% shooting percentage and 173 hits also ranked first and second respectively among Philadelphia blue liners during the year.
