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.

Rangers' Zuccarello Signs Extension

News: Mats Zuccarello agreed to a four-year, $18 million contract extension with the Rangers on Sunday, ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old Norwegian is now signed through 2018-19 for $4.5 million per year. He has 35 points (12 goals) through 59 games this season, after scoring a career-high 59 points (19 goals) over 77 games in 2013-14.

Rangers' Zucarello Snaps Two-Game Drought

News: Mats Zuccarello logged an assist in Thursday's 4-3 victory over the Coyotes.
Analysis: The point snaps a mild two-game point-scoring slumber for the Norwegian Hobbit. While the pending unrestricted free agent has consistently turned things up a notch since early December, his slow start will likely leave him shy of matching last year's career high of 59 points. Mats Zuccarello has 12 goals, 35 points and is a plus-16 through 58 games played.

Rangers' Zuccarello Scores, Pushes Streak To Seven

News: Mats Zuccarello found twine for the second straight game Thursday against Colorado, and in the process extended his point streak to seven games.
Analysis: Zucc is shooting with more confidence, and linemate Rick Nash seems to be focused on setting him up for some more goals lately. Free agency is looming, and Mats Zuccarello has expressed a desire to remain in New York. Putting together a big finish could help convince the Rangers to hold onto him for the long term.

Rangers' Zuccarello Extends Streak With Two Goals

News: Mats Zuccarello scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner in the final six minutes, Tuesday in a 5-4 victory over Toronto.
Analysis: Usually, Zucc does the distributing, but on this evening, Rick Nash set him up nicely twice. The diminutive Norwegian now has a six-game point streak during which he's racked up three goals and five helpers. It's nice to see him coming around after an uneven first half.

Rangers' Zuccarello Coming Around

News: Mats Zuccarello collected an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Predators on Saturday.
Analysis: The helper extends Zucc's modest point streak to four games. After a slow start to the year, he's been looking more active on the offensive end since the All-Star break.

Rangers' Zuccarello Turning Things Up

News: Mats Zuccarello collected an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Boston.
Analysis: That's a goal and three assists in his last three games for the Norwegian Hobbit. The pending unrestricted free agent is starting to turn things up a notch now, though his season line remains a relatively modest 27 points in 47 games.

Rangers' Zuccarello Collects Goal And Assist

News: Mats Zuccarello tallied a goal and an assist in Monday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello hasn't turned in a repeat performance from last season when he notched 40 assists and grabbed 59 points, but he does have a respectable 26 points through 46 contests. The 27-year-old has been more productive of late since a slow start to the season, and has been collecting points at a more consistent rate.

Rangers' Zuccarello To Play Thursday

News: Mats Zuccarello (illness) will play Thursday against the Canadiens, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello fought through Wednesday's practice with the illness, but as expected, he was back on the ice for Thursday's morning skate. He might not be completely healthy, but he's still expected to see a normal minutes load as a member of the Rangers' second line.

Rangers' Zuccarello Feeling Under The Weather

News: Mats Zuccarello reported that he was feeling ill Wednesday, according to Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault noted that he still expects Mats Zuccarello to play Thursday against the Canadiens. In the meantime, Zuccarello will attempt to pick up some rest before aiming for a return to the ice Thursday morning.

Zukes Breaks Drought In Rangers' Win

News: Mats Zuccarello contributed an assist in Sunday's 5-2 victory over Pittsburgh
Analysis: After busting out of his slump in early December, Mats Zuccarello and averaging nearly a point-per-game over the next 14 games, Zuccarello (23 points in 41 games) had been shutout while registering a minus-3 rating his past three games combined. While it doesn't appear he'll approach the 59-point total from last season, there's quiet speculation the pending free agent could get moved at the deadline, causing a change (for good-or-ill) in fantasy value. Keep an eye on The Norwegian Hobbit as we near the trade deadline.

Zuccarello Contributing To Rangers' Wins

News: Mats Zuccarello logged an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over San Jose.
Analysis: The team is on high gear and his 12 points (three goals) over the last 14 games has certainly helped. The Norwegian Hobbit's plus-12 with 22 points in 36 games should make him a target for owners in deeper formats

Rangers' Zuccarello Scores In Win

News: Mats Zuccarello netted his seventh goal of the season in Wednesday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: It's good to see Mats Zuccarello back in the goal column, as Wednesday was the first time the veteran winger had tickled the twine since Dec. 13. Despite the lack of goal production, the winger has been hot lately, registering eight points in his last 10 games.
