Del Zotto, meanwhile, will have his parents in the stands among the screaming Igloo patrons on banner night Friday, and also for the Garden opener Saturday and Game 3 on Monday in Newark. The 19-year-old says he has tried to lay low a bit and hasn't spoken much with his old junior teammates in London (the Knights, who had Nazem Kadri, the No. 7 overall pick of the '09 draft to the Maple Leafs, returned to them for the season, are off to a 4-3 start in Del Zotto's absence). "I've actually tried to keep my phone off as much as possible," Del Zotto said.
"Right now he has made the club - based on his play, he has made the club. It has nothing to do with minors or junior. He's had a good camp. Again, like I told you, we're not looking at age or anything like that; we've felt he's had a good camp. Are there going to be some bumps in the road with him? No question there will be. But right now we feel he's played well enough to be with the National Hockey League team."
Mike didn't scalp his tickets for the Penguins game?
