Rangers defensemen skated off the ice after he finished his workout back home in Ontario yesterday, and when he reached his cell phone it contained more than 20 text messages---every single one of them informing him the Rangers had just made a major trade, acquiring Rick Nash from Columbus.
So what did Del Zotto do to confirm that, indeed, Nash was his new teammate?
"Everyone was asking if I heard anything about a big trade, and I hadn't heard anything" Del Zotto said on Tuesday. "So I did what any person would do now and go straight to the Twitter world! And that's where I saw the deal had been made!"
