Del Zotto (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve by the Flyers on Tuesday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Del Zotto has been ruled out for 4-to-5 weeks because of the lower-body injury, so his placement on long-term IR shouldn't come as a big surprise. It's an unfortunate start to the season for the Flyers but his absence may not be felt as much in the fantasy realm. The blueliner tallied just 13 points in 52 games for the club last season.
