The St. Louis Blues acquired defenseman Michael Del Zotto from the Anaheim Ducks for a sixth-round draft pick in 2019.

What does it give the St. Louis Blues
The Blues have been a major comeback story this season, and now are in pretty solid playoff position. Adding Del Zotto here provides some of the depth that went missing when Carl Gunnarsson went down with injury.

What does it give the Anaheim Ducks
The Ducks have been in a massive funk since the early portion of 2018-19, so it is no surprise that they decided to move on from pending UFA defenseman Del Zotto (who was acquired from Vancouver earlier this season).

Fantasy impact
Del Zotto has not been much of a fantasy factor this season, and that will probably not change with the move to St. Louis (who are playing very well right now, so they may not want to make a big change on the back line). Pass on Del Zotto.
