Flyers Sign Del Zotto

The Flyers signed free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto to a one-year, $1.3 million contract on Tuesday.

The signing came after the announcement that Kimmo Timonen is being treating in his country of Finland for blood clots in his right calf and both lungs.

In 67 games with the Nashville Predators and the New York Rangers last season, Del Zotto scored three goals and 13 assists. His speed, size and offensive ability will help fill the void left by Timonen's injury.
