Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto is on the shelf.

According to the Flyers, Del Zotto suffered an upper-body injury and is day-to-day, and he missed last night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks.

Del Zotto has been the team’s top defenseman this season in terms of usage. He leads the team in average even strength minutes per game, and also plays on the team’s power play and penalty kill. Despite the heavy usage, Del Zotto has remained a positive puck possession player at even strength, posting a 52.37% on-ice Corsi For percentage.
