The 2019 Stanley Cup champ Michael Del Zottos’ girlfriend & dating status is the center of fans’ query, especially after his not-so-well connection with adult film actress Lisa Ann came forth in 2014.
Ann took to Twitter to shame & mock Zotto, who reportedly asked her to be an escort for dates with other girls, even though they were dating then.
The relationship talks of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks star don’t end here.
He was once rumored to be in a relationship with Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, wife of Prince Harry.
A bitter yet controversial past of the ice hockey player surged curiosity over his current girlfriend- if he is dating.
With that being said, there are no questions about his abilities in the rink, though.
Currently, Michael Del Zotto is under contract with the Anaheim Ducks of the NHL. He played the 2022-23 season with its AHL affiliate San Diego Gulls.
Zotto previously played for other NHL teams: Philadelphia Flyers, New York Rangers, St. Louis Blues & Vancouver Canucks.
Born on June 24, 1990, the Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ontario native is the youngest of two sons of Steven Del Zotto & Lee Del Zotto.
His father, Steven, is a former collegiate football player who played at York University & was the 1986 CFL Draft pick of the Toronto Argonauts.
It explains where the athletic trait of the St. Andrew’s College attendant Zotto comes from.
Michael Del Zotto Girlfriend: Is He Dating Anyone?
A successful ice hockey player with a toned physique, Zotto undeniably, is a heartthrob of many.
There are lots of assumptions that the NHL defenseman has a girlfriend & goes on Instagram post-spree about their dating. But it seems the truth is far from that.
It’s possible that, given his controversial past relationships, Michael Del Zotto likes to keep his romance away from the spotlight.
As far as the evidence from his social media posts & online sources suggests, the Canadian ice hockey star is not dating anyone or has had a girlfriend in recent years.
Previously, the 6 feet tall Anaheim Ducks player was in a relationship/rumored romance with three girls: Meghan Markle, Lisa Ann, and Amber Ryne.
Rumored Link With Meghan Markle- Did It Break Markle’s First Marriage?
In 2013, the Canadian ice hockey star was linked with Megan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex & wife of Prince Harry.
Amid the rumored relationship between Markle & Michael, she divorced her then-husband Trevor Engelson, a film director, in August 2013. They were married for only two years.
It raised criticism & queries if Mrs. Markle cheated on her beau to be with the NHL star.
The concerns about the alleged liaison came as Megan attended Zotto’s game two times a few months before her divorce.
The first game was on April 8, 2013, in Toronto vs the Maple Leafs. On April 22 that year, she flew to New York to attend Zotto’s game & called him “the best.”
However, the representatives of both Michael and Meghan denied their relationship.
Meghan’s spokesman added: “In fact, she was never alone with him, and Mr. Del Zotto has absolutely nothing to do with the end of her marriage.”
Interestingly, when asked about Meghan’s alleged affair with Del Zotto, her ex-husband Trevor said, “Who? Oh, him. I don’t have anything to say about it. I just can’t”.
Even though these claims & subtle indicators bring no truth forward, it did cause a lot of commotion in the media then.
Adult Film Star Slammed Zotto On Twitter
The Canadian ice hockey player had also been associated with adult film actress Lisa Ann.
According to Lisa’s Tweet, the two met at an event where he reached out to a promoter to meet her- a story of 2012.
After that, they went on a date, but about a week later, Zotto asked his date, Ann, if she could hook him up with other girls.
As a result, Ann & Michael would part ways, but upon their rekindling their romance after a year, the NHL star would do the same.
So, Lisa Ann took to Twitter in November 2014 & shamed the then-Flyers defenseman by posting a series of embarrassing messages, he reportedly asked her to arrange dates with other girls.
The adult film actress even said that since she tweeted his story, hundreds of girls had come out to tell her he did the same thing to them as well.
Moreover, her account got support from another adult film star named Amber Ryne.
Amber Ryne tweeted saying, “Hahaha, he did this to me too.. not appreciated.”
Sadly, there is not much information about his dating life with Amber Ryne.
