Del Zotto, 28, in 2009 became the youngest defenseman in New York Rangers history to play on an opening night when he was just 19 years old.

In 2014, Del Zotto was traded by the Rangers to the Nashville Predators before becoming a free agent. He then played for the Philadelphia Flyers until 2017, when he signed a two-year contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

In the 2017–18 season, Del Zotto played in a career-high 82 games and collected 6 goals and 16 assists for 22 points.

Del Zotto was traded by the Canucks to the Anaheim Ducks a little over a month ago.
