Did you know that Michael Del Zotto had a broken nose? I didn’t, and apparently neither did Del Zotto.â†µ
Andrew Gross is reporting that Del Zotto has had surgery to realign his nose:â†µ
In January, Del Zotto recalls lining a player up for a hit along the boards in front of the Rangersâ€™ bench at Madison Square Garden, missing the check but hitting the opponentâ€™s foot and going face-first into the dasher. Del Zotto didnâ€™t think it was broken at the time, though it hurt. It wasnâ€™t until he returned to New York and saw the Rangersâ€™ training staff was the decision made to send him for a CT scan, after which surgery was recommended.â†µ
And now he can breath easy, and so can Rangers fans, since Del Zotto figures to be a huge part of the Rangers offense next year.
