Timonen headed to U.S., will see Flyers doctor

For as helpless as Flyers GM Ron Hextall felt at the beginning of the month when he found out his best defenseman was stuck in another country with blood clots in his leg and both lungs, he was much more subdued Tuesday. That’s because Kimmo Timonen was en route back to the United States after he learned of the scary diagnosis a couple weeks earlier in his native Finland. Doctors...

Philadelphia Flyers give Michael Del Zotto another chance

Michael Del Zotto is getting another chance. The 24-year-old defenseman once had a world of promise playing for the New York Rangers and looked as though he was finally delivering on it with a breakout 2011-12 season where he posted 10 goals and 31 assists. Two years of struggle later and he found himself shipped off to Nashville for fellow defenseman Kevin Klein. Things didn’t...
