As soon as I heard Michael Del Zotto was traded, the first person I thought of was Liam Traynor. We all met Liam during HBO’s 24/7 series in 2011-12. It was meant for us to see John Tortorella’s softer side, but it did so much more. It introduced us to a special young man and a great NY Rangers fan. 

Fortunately for me, Liam and I became friends on Twitter and I consider myself lucky and honored that he would let me post his thoughts on his buddy, Michael Del Zotto. Enjoy everyone.

I am proud to call Michael DelZotto my best buddy. I can remember the day I met him in January 2010 and that day I knew he was someone special. He came back with pucks and sticks for me and my twin sister. 

When Coach Tortorella invited me down to the locker room, Michael would always spend time with me. We would sit on the bench by the ice and talk about the game. Then out of the blue he texted me getting my phone number from Torts. 

I would always text him before and after the games, wishing him best of luck and great job. When Torts sent him down I did call him pleading to bring him back up. Well Torts explained to me the process that players go through and I need to support him. That's just what I did and it made our friendship stronger. I even spoke to Glen Sather at coach’s (Torts) dog walk to get his contract done. 

In anyway I would support my buddy. We would joke around that I was his #1 fan after his family. Not only did I support Michael, but he supported me. This past summer I had surgery. Michael came and played xbox to lift my spirits. I joked and said I don't know who you are going to be on xbox, but I'm Del Zotto! He laughed and (we) played USA Vs Canada. I have to admit he did beat me, but it was a great day. I was very sad to see him traded, but know this is a good decision for him and his hockey career. I know where ever he goes we will be best buddies. 

Liam Traynor

Thanks again Liam for letting us share your thoughts and Good Luck to Michael Del Zotto!
