Rangers' Zuccarello To Play In Charity Game

News: Mats Zuccarello (head) is slated to play in a charity game in his native Norway on June 19, The Hockey News reports.
Analysis: It will mark the first time Mats Zuccarello takes to the ice since suffering a brain contusion in the first round of the playoffs, which resulted in the forward temporarily losing his ability to speak and move his arm. Zuccarello has since recovered from the scary incident without many complications, but he's not going to be subjected to much contact in the charity game that will also feature four of his Rangers teammates. Still, it appears that Zuccarello will fortunately enjoy a normal offseason before reclaiming a top-six role for the Blueshirts in 2015-16.

Rangers' Zuccarello Suffered Brain Contusion

News: Mats Zuccarello suffered a brain contusion in Game 5 of the Rangers' first round series against Pittsburgh, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: The injury occurred after Mats Zuccarello was hit in the head by a slap shot from teammate Ryan McDonagh, and kept him out of the rest of the Rangers' playoff run. A brain contusion is without a doubt a frightening injury, which is made apparent by the fact that Zuccarello was reportedly unable to speak for four days following the incident. Though Zuccarello still remains in speech therapy, he 's expected to be fully recovered by time the Rangers open training camp in September, when he'll kick off the first season of a four-year, $18 million extension he inked in March.

Rangers' Zuccarello Practices Without Contact

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) briefly joined the Rangers during the non-contact portion of Thursday's practice, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: As soon as coach Alain Vigneault blew the whistle for the start of full-contact work, Mats Zuccarello left the ice, suggesting that he's not a candidate to play during Friday's Game 7 against the Lightning. Zuccarello could receive clearance to take contact in the coming days, and should have a decent shot at reentering the lineup in the Stanley Cup Finals if the Rangers are able to advance.

Zuccarello Traveling With Rangers

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) made the trip to Tampa Bay on Monday, but won't play in Tuesday's Game 6, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello is still considered day-to-day and has yet to join the team for a full contact practice. As such, he'll be forced to remain out Tuesday, but he could return later in the playoffs if the Rangers are able to stave off elimination.

Rangers' Zuccarello (Upper Body) Still Day-To-Day

News: Zucarrello (upper body) will not skate Sunday and remains day-to-day, but coach Alain Vigneault indicated he's "getting better," Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello continues to work his way back from an upper-body injury that occurred against the Penguins in the first round. While he won't play Sunday, the fact that he's day-to-day doesn't rule out a return at some point in the series.

Rangers' Zuccarello Remains Out

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) was on the ice Thursday, but has yet to join the team for practice, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The winger hasn't practiced in nearly a month, and he'll have to do so before he has any chance to return during the Rangers' playoff run.

Rangers' Zuccarello Likely Out Next Two Games

News: Coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday that he doesn't expect Mats Zuccarello to be available for the Rangers' next two games in the Eastern Conference Finals series with the Lightning, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello started skating on his own Monday as he looks to return from a probable concussion, but he isn't expected to receive clearance to skate with his teammates over the next several days, ending his chances of a mid-series return. The Rangers will continue to monitor Zuccarello's condition on an ongoing basis as they look to identify a realistic target return date.

Rangers' Zuccarello Skates Monday

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) skated "lightly" on his own Monday, but remains out indefinitely.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello suffered the upper-body injury -- likely a concussion -- in the first round of the playoffs, and didn't play at all in the second round. He's finally making some minor progress, but light skating is far from what will be required to rejoin the lineup.

Rangers' Zuccarello Yet To Start Skating

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) has yet to resume skating, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: The Rangers haven't ruled Mats Zuccarello out from returning during the Eastern Conference Finals series with the Lightning, but his chances of playing don't appear promising at this point. Zuccarello is believed to be dealing with a concussion, though the Rangers haven't confirmed as much.

Rangers' Zuccarello Not Ruled Out For ECF

News: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said there is hope Mats Zuccarello (upper body) will be available at some point during the Eastern Conference finals, the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello recently resumed working out, but he still won't be ready for the start of the upcoming series against Tampa Bay. He hasn't played since Game 5 of the first round, after taking a puck to the side of his head.

Rangers Rule Out Zuccarello For Second Round

News: Mats Zuccarello (upper body) will not be available for the entirety of the Rangers' second-round series against the Capitals, Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: The Rangers were listing Mats Zuccarello as "out indefinitely" after he likely sustained a concussion when he was accidentally struck on the left side of the head by teammate Ryan McDonagh in Game 5 of the team's first-round series with the Penguins. With Zuccarello out of commission for the second round and potentially beyond, the Rangers will turn to Martin St. Louis to replace him on their top line.

Rangers' Zuccarello Sidelined

News: Mats Zuccarello is out indefinitely due to an upper-body injury, according to NHL.com's Dan Rosen.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello was among the Rangers not on the ice for Monday's optional practice, with the forward's playing status for the second round of the playoffs looking murky at this stage. It seems a likely possibility that the injury is a concussion, as Zuccarello left Friday's Game 5 after being struck in the head by a puck.

Rangers' Zuccarello (Undisclosed) Will Not Return

News: Mats Zuccarello (undisclosed) will not return to Friday's Game 5 against the Penguins.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello should be considered day-to-day moving forward until the Rangers shed some light on what exactly the 27-year-old is dealing with after getting hit in the head with a puck in the first period Friday. His next opportunity to play will be in the potential Game 6 on Sunday, or in the second round.

Rangers' Zuccarello Leaves With Injury

News: Mats Zuccarello (undisclosed) left Friday's Game 5 against the Penguins in the first period due to injury, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello was forced from Friday's contest after taking a puck directly to the head from a slap shot. The nature of the injury is unclear at this point in time, but any time a player takes a puck up high is cause for concern. It remains to be seen if Zuccarello will be able to return.

Rangers Rest Zuccarello On Thursday

News: After missing practice on Thursday, Mats Zuccarello is set to dress in Game 5 against Pittsburgh on Friday, reports Pat Leonard of The Daily News.
Analysis: The team has not been hesitant to give Mats Zuccarello rest days as the season has worn on, so there's no reason for concern here. Perhaps the thought process is to unravel the Norwegian Hobbit from his small two game point-scoring drought. After posting a modest 49 points through 78 regular season games, the fifth year right-winger is a plus-1 with two points in four playoff tilts.

Rested Zuccarello Logs Assist In Rangers' Loss

News: Mats Zuccarello logged an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: With an assist in each of his first two games, it appears the two game respite Mats Zuccarello got before the playoff started have got him re-charged. Though no one should be surprised about his production against the Penguins as the Norwegian forward has now registered 12 points in 14 career games against Pittsburgh.

Rangers' Zuccarello Looks To Be In Saturday

News: Mats Zuccarello (general soreness) was on the ice for pregame warmups and looks to be ready to play Saturday against the Capitals, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After missing the previous two games, Mats Zuccarello was said to be a game-time decision for Saturday's finale upon his return to practice Friday. It looks like the winger experienced no further complications with his injury overnight, clearing the way for him to get in a tune-up game before the playoffs begin. Expect him to occupy a third-line role for the Rangers.

Rangers' Zuccarello A Game-Time Call Saturday

News: Mats Zuccarello (general soreness) will be a game-time decision for Saturday's game against the Capitals.
Analysis: After missing the Rangers' previous two games, Mats Zuccarello returned to practice Friday to give himself a shot at playing in the regular-season finale. Coach Alain Vigneault said that Zuccarello will suit up Saturday if he checks out OK heading into the pregame warmups, so expect a ruling on his status to be made prior to the 12:30 ET puck drop.

Rangers' Zuccarello To Rest Thursday

News: Mats Zuccarello (body soreness) is slated to sit out Thursday's game against Ottawa, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: The report further relays that Rick Nash and Marc Staal are in line to be rested Thursday, but given that Mats Zuccarello also missed Tuesday's game with body soreness, his status for Saturday's regular season finale against the Caps also looks cloudy.

Rangers' Zuccarello Out Tuesday With Soreness

News: Mats Zuccarello will miss Tuesday's game against the Devils due to body soreness, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The Rangers are listing Mats Zuccarello as day-to-day, giving him a good chance at returning to the lineup Thursday against the Senators. Jesper Fast is slated to move up to Zuccarello's spot on the top line during Tuesday's match, while James Sheppard will enter the lineup on the fourth trio after serving as a healthy scratch the last few contests.

Rangers' Zuccarello On Late-Season Hot Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello scored a goal and helped out on another Thursday in Ottawa, pushing his point streak to four games.
Analysis: Zucc remains short of last year's pace, but he's still heating up late in the season here for the Rangers, with a pair of goals and four assists over his last four. He's still likely to clear 50 points for the second straight year, though, as he's only got three to go to reach that milestone.

Zuccarello Dishes Pair Of Helpers In Rangers' Win

News: Mats Zuccarello picked a pair of points in Sunday's shellacking of Anaheim.
Analysis: Well off last year's career pace, the points (43 in 69 games) have come in clumps for most of Mats Zuccarello's campaign. But three points -all assists- in his last two contests and four games this week is enough reason to glance twice when you pass him in the free-agent pool, if he's there.

Rangers Zuccarello Nets Shootout Winner

News: Mats Zuccarello picked up an assist in regulation and then scored the only goal in the shootout to lift the Rangers to a 3-2 win over Carolina.
Analysis: The Norwegian Hobbit is in a 13-game goal slump, but does have seven helpers in that span. We'd honestly hoped for more given his 59-point outburst last year. Right now, he stands at 41 points in 68 games and that's only valuable in large or deep leagues.

Rangers' Zuccarello Extends Point Streak

News: Mats Zuccarello logged a second period assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Isles.
Analysis: The gritty forward, who was also on ice for Rick Nash's game-winner, extends his current point streak to four games. The Norwegian Hobbit led all Rangers' forwards with nearly 20 minutes of total ice time -including three minutes on the man advantage- also registered a plus-2 rating to go along with two shots on goal. Mats Zuccarello is a plus-17 with 40 points through 63 games played.

Rangers' Zuccarello Contributes In Win

News: Mats Zuccarello dished out two assists in Monday's 4-1 win over the Predators.
Analysis: In his first game since signing an extension on Sunday, Mats Zuccarello turned in another productive night as he also finished with a plus-2 rating to bring him up to plus-15 on the season. The winger could log his second consecutive 50-point campaign with a strong finish.
