Buzz: Michael Del Zotto Is Preparing Like Normal

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto is in NY and preparing for the start of training camp with 13 other players at the Rangers training facility according to Andrew Gross.

Del Zotto, a RFA, told Gross that he is preparing for the season as he normally does and that the contract stuff “is out of my control.”

He added that he knows that it’s a business.

Reports last month suggested that Del Zotto and the Rangers were far apart on a new contract.

The deal is expected to get wrapped up before the CBA expires on September 15th.
