PREDATORS ACQUIRE DEL ZOTTO FROM RANGERS FOR D KLEIN
The Nashville Predators have swapped defencemen with the New York Rangers, sending right-handed shooter Kevin Klein to New York in exchange for a lefty in Michael Del Zotto.
The Predators announced the trade Wednesday before heading to Vancouver for a four-game road swing.
“Michael gives us another young, gifted left-handed shooting defenceman with significant offensive upside,” Predators general manager David Poile Poile said in a statement. “We look forward to his presence on our already talented young blue line, further balancing our defensive corps.”
