Rangers' Zuccarello Settles Arbitration Case

News: Mats Zuccarello settled Tuesday with the Rangers on a one-year, $3.5 million contract, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: The Rangers and Mats Zuccarello are still trying to reach an agreement on a long-term pact, but after Tuesday's settlement, a new deal cannot be reached until after Jan. 1. The forward is reportedly seeking a contract in the range of three or four years at about $4.5 million a season. He was one of the breakthrough stars of the 2013-14 season, tallying 19 goals and 40 assists over 77 games.

Zuccarello Headed For Big Payday From Rangers

News: Mats Zuccarello is headed to arbitration after filing before Saturday's 5 p.m. deadline, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: He's in for big pay increase after avoiding arbitration last summer and inking a deal worth $1.15 million. He then went out and led the Rangers in scoring -- at least until Martin St. Louis arrived in a trade -- with 59 points on the season.

Rangers' Zuccarello Gets Two Points

News: Mats Zuccarello snapped a six-game point drought with a goal and an assist in Saturday's 5-4, double overtime loss to Los Angeles.
Analysis: The Rangers could use more consistency from the Norwegian Hobbit. He has 13 points in 22 playoff games and eight of those have come in his 11 games. Unfortunately, those 11 points were tallied in just three contests, leaving eight with donuts.

Rangers' Zuccarello: Three Points, Top Team Scorer

News: Mats Zuccarello scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: He now leads the Rangers in postseason scoring with 11 points in 15 games.

Rangers' Zuccarello Helps Out On Three In Game 5

News: Mats Zuccarello notched three assists in Friday's Game 5 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: The three points were Mats Zuccarello's largest scoring output since Mar. 30, vaulting his postseason point total to eight. The line of Zuccarello, Derick Brassard and Benoit Pouliot did most of the heavy lifting offensively Friday, combining for seven points on the night.

Zuccarello Closes Out Rangers' With Point Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello registered an assist in Wednesday's series deciding victory over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello, who started the series with two points in as many games, went cold during the middle three games before closing out the series with two more points in Game 6 and 7. If his career stats (nine points in 10 career games) versus their next round opponent, Pittsburgh, prove prophetic, then the team should expect a nice series from their break-out Norwegian winger.

Rangers' Zuccarello Back In Goal Column

News: Mats Zuccarello scored a late goal in Tuesday's 5-2 Game 6 loss to the Flyers -- his first point since Game 2 of the series.
Analysis: Zucc had been pretty quiet overall in those three games, as he played a more physical style, but took just one shot in Games 3 and 5. He now has three points for the series -- a disappointing performance from a guy who was perhaps the Rangers' most dangerous offensive threat during the regular season.

Zuccarello Collects An Assist In Rangers' Loss

News: Mats Zuccarello logged an assist in just over 15 minutes of play in Sunday's Game 2 loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello, who has at least one point in 11 of his last 15 games played has been nearly an automatic point-getter since late-January. Despite a small-sampling, considering the Norwegian's career totals (six points in six games) versus the Flyers, we see no reason for the production to halt, at least in this series.

Rangers' Zuccarello Extends Point Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello collected a helper in Thursday's 2-1 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Fantasy owners have got to be pleased with the production out of this mid-rounder. In addition to his current six-game point (nine points) streak, Mats Zuccarello has had fantastic production throughout the year and as a result shattered his career-high in goals, assists and points. Through 75 games, The Norwegian Hobbit is a plus-11 with 19 goals and 40 assists.

Rangers' Zuccarello On Five-Game Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello picked up an assist Tuesday against Carolina, pushing his point streak to five games.
Analysis: He's totaled eight points -- evenly split between goals and assists -- in that span, adding a plus-2 rating and two PIM to boot. This has been a big breakout year for Zucc, , and it's perhaps worth noting that Zucc is following a career path not dissimilar to that of his now-teammate Martin St. Louis, another super-talented, but undersized guy who didn't start putting up big point totals until his late 20s.

Rangers' Zuccarello: Two Goals Stretch Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello scored both Rangers' goals in Saturday's loss to the Senators. The points extended his current point streak to four games and seven points (four goals, three assists).
Analysis: The Norwegian Hobbit has exploded this season and now has 19 goals and 38 assists (57 points) in 74 games. He also lays hits (113 overall). The little guy is a valuable fantasy asset. Use him well.

Rangers' Zuccarello Tallies Three Points

News: Mats Zuccarello scored two goals, including the game-winner and a shorthanded tally, and had an assist against the Oilers on Sunday.
Analysis: Despite missing a bit of time with injury, Mats Zuccarello has dwarfed his career numbers with 17 goals and 53 points.

Rangers' Zuccarello At It Again

News: Zuccarrello assisted on two of the Rangers' three goals in Friday's win over Columbus, the second consecutive game in which he grabbed two assists.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello had been quiet for three games before his recent four-point outburst, however he still hasn't scored a goal in almost two months, since the team's rout of New Jersey at Yankee Stadium. He's been racking up assists and has missed some time due to injury, but he remains an effective player, albeit one who could put the puck in the net a bit more.

Rangers' Zuccarello Helps Out In Win

News: Mats Zuccarello had a pair of assists and went plus-4 in Tuesday's 8-4 rout of the Senators.
Analysis: Zucc was the primary assistant on third-period goals by Derek Stepan and Derick Brassard that put the game out of reach. This busted a streak of three straight games without a point, but the Norwegian winger still doesn't have a goal since Jan. 26. Of course, he's been piling up very fine assist totals.

Rangers' Zuccarello Returns Friday Night

News: Mats Zuccarello, who had missed the last four games due to a hand injury, returned to the lineup Friday and recorded one assist and three shots on goal over 18:19 of ice time.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello suffered the injury while playing for Norway at the Sochi Olympics, but was insistent that it wouldn't keep him out for long. Coach Alain Vigneault said that Zuccarello "didn't miss a beat" and played a strong game, so it looks like he's safe to get back into your lineups.

Rangers' Zuccarello To Play Friday

News: Mats Zuccarello (hand) will play in Friday's game against the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: It was believed that a decision on Mats Zuccarello's status would not come until game time, but it appears he is feeling a little better than expected, and he will take the ice Friday for the first time since breaking his hand during the Olympics. Zuccarello will attempt to pick up where he left off; he notched two goals and six assists over the last six games he played in for the Rangers.

Rangers' Zuccarello A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Mats Zuccarello (hand) will be a game-time decision Friday vs. the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The general sentiment seems to be that Mats Zuccarello will be back in the fold Friday, and if he participates in morning skate without any setbacks, fantasy owners can probably feel comfortable rolling with him in their lineups. The addition of Zuccarello would only give further firepower to a Rangers lineup that acquired reigning Art Ross Trophy winner Martin St. Louis a day earlier.

Rangers' Zuccarello Close To Return

News: Coach Alain Vigneault said Mats Zuccarello (hand) has been upgraded to day-to-day and could return later this week, NHL.com's Jim Cerny reports. "Don't expect him, obviously, [Wednesday], but it's just a pain thing now," Vigneault said. "As soon as he can handle the pain, then he'll be good to go. It shouldn't be too much longer."
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello was told he'd miss three-to-four weeks after suffering his hand injury Feb. 16, but it looks like he'll reach the short end of the timetable, at the very least. The 26-year-old is enjoying a breakout season in which he's provided 43 points over 58 games, and he was especially hot over the 11 games before the break, potting four goals and adding six assists. If the forward isn't experiencing too much soreness over the next couple of practices, he could be an option for Friday's game against the Hurricanes.

Rangers' Zuccarello Resumes Skating

News: Though he won't play Thursday, Mats Zuccarello was on the ice for the Rangers' morning skate, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello still has limited functionality with his left hand, and is still at least an additional week away from returning to action. It seems his presence on the ice is for the purpose of staying conditioned more than anything.

Rangers Confirm Broken Hand For Zuccarello

News: The Rangers have confirmed that Mats Zuccarello suffered a broken hand during the Olympics, and he is expected to be out 3-to-4 weeks, TSN's Darren Dreger reports.
Analysis: Initial reports indicated Mats Zuccarello's setback may have been minor, but a closer look by the Rangers team doctor confirmed the fracture. Zuccarello has already begun the recovery process and will have about another week to recover without missing any games, but it's likely that he will remain sidelined for about 10-to-14 days once the action resumes next week.

Rangers' Zuccarello Breaks Hand

News: Mats Zuccarello has a broken hand, the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello will return to New York to be reevaluated, but at first glance, the injury doesn't appear too serious. Apparently, it's just a small, non-displaced fracture in his left hand, which he suffered during Norway's 4-0 loss to Russia on Tuesday. Zuccarello is expected to be able to suit up for the Rangers' first game back after the break Feb. 27 against the Blackhawks.

Rangers' Zuccarello Dealing With Hand Injury

News: Mats Zuccarello missed Norway's 4-0 loss to Russia on Tuesday due to a left hand injury, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With Norway now eliminated from the Olympic tournament, Mats Zuccarello's next chance to play will come when the Rangers return to action on Feb. 27 against the Blackhawks. At this stage, it's unclear whether the availability of the team's leading scorer (Zuccarello has 43 points in 58 NHL games to date) will be impacted at that time.

Rangers' Zuccarello Extends Point Streak.

News: Mats Zuccarello extend his point streak to five games with an assist in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Edmonton.
Analysis: The assist came on centerman Derick Brassard's third goal in as many games. The two, along with Benoit Pouliot, have found a chemistry that most owners and fans are hoping will continue after the Olympic break. Mats Zuccarello is a plus-7 with two goals and five assists during his current five-game point streak.

Assists Keep Trickling In For Rangers' Zuccarello

News: Mats Zuccarello provided two assists and finished with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello hasn't found the twine in three games despite firing off 10 shots, but he's continued to stay productive with four assists and a plus-4 rating over that span. The 26-year-old is enjoying a tremendous breakthrough season and deserves to be owned in just about every fantasy format.

Rangers' Zuccarello Scores Twice

News: Mats Zuccarello tallied two goals against the Devils on Sunday, including the game-winner.
Analysis: The fine effort gives Mats Zuccarello 15 goals and 37 points in 53 games; he continues to prove his ability to score successfully with regular playing time.
