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.

Zuccarello Hands Out Two Helpers In Rangers' Win

News: Mats Zuccarello dished out a pair of assists, went plus-2 and grabbed a pair of PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Washington.
Analysis: Another strong effort from Zucc, who assisted on both of Rick Nash's goals -- in fact, it was his shot that deflected off Nash and into the net for the first goal of the game. Zucc has rounded into midseason form of late, having collected eight points -- two goals and six helpers -- over his last seven games. For some icing on the cake, he's also gone plus-8 in that span.

Rangers' Zuccarello: Assist And Shootout Goal

News: Mats Zuccarello picked up an assist in regulation time and then potted the only goal in the shootout to deliver a 3-2 victory over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: He's far off his pace of 59 points in 77 games from last season and has just 15 points in 28 games so far. We don't think last season was an outlier, but we clearly need to see more before we can fully trust him in anything but a deep league.

Rangers' Zuccarello Pots Pair Of Goals In Win

News: Mats Zuccarello potted a pair of goals in Saturday's win over the Canucks.
Analysis: The top-line winger now has six goals and 13 points in 25 games, to go with a plus-5 rating. While he likely won't match last season's career-high 59 points, he could hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career this season. Mats Zuccarello has some great games, but his inconsistency makes him unworthy of a look in most shallow leagues.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Zuccarello

News: Mats Zuccarello and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Mats Zuccarello to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Two Points For Rangers' Zuccarello On Saturday

News: Mats Zuccarello had an outstanding showing Saturday against the Maple Leafs, finishing with a goal, assist and a plus-2 rating while leading the Rangers with seven shots on goal and five hits.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello appeared well with new linemate Derek Stepan, who made his season debut Saturday after injuring his leg during training camp. The Norwegian has underachieved to this point with six points in 11 games, but if Saturday's game is any indication, the return of Stepan could allow his production to climb in the contests to come.

Rangers' Zuccarello Looks Set To Play Wednesday

News: Mats Zuccarello (lower body) was on the ice for morning skate and appears set to play Wednesday against the Red Wings, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: The Rangers didn't hold line rushes during the morning session, but Zuccareello's participation in power-play drills suggests he'll be available Wednesday evening. The winger, who missed only one game due to the injury, has compiled a goal and three assists over nine contests on the season.

Rangers' Zuccarello Could Return Wednesday

News: A decision on whether or not Mats Zuccarello (lower body) will play Wednesday against the Red Wings will be made following the Rangers' morning skate.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello was able to practice Tuesday after sitting out the game the night before, but he still has one more hurdle to cross before being reinserted into the lineup.

Rangers' Zuccarello (Lower Body) Not Warming Up

News: Mats Zuccarello (lower body) is not on the ice for pregame warmups, The Record's Andrew Gross reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello missed Monday's morning skate after limping to the locker room Sunday. He was considered a game-time call entering Monday's contest, but at this point it appears safe to assume he's out of action.

Rangers' Zuccarello Misses Morning Skate

News: Mats Zuccarello (lower body) was not present at the team's morning skate Monday, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello wasn't on the ice for Sunday's optional skate, and didn't make an appearance during Monday's mandatory one either. He was seen limping in the locker room Sunday, and should be considered a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Blues at this point.

Rangers' Zuccarello Scores Game Winner Monday

News: Mats Zuccarello potted his first goal of the season -- a game winner -- and added two assists as the Rangers beat the Wild 5-4 on Monday. He also skated to a plus-3 and fired four shots on goal.
Analysis: All three points came in the third period with his goal completing a thrilling comeback after the Rangers were down 3-0 at the second intermission. Perhaps this is just what the man they call the "Norwegian Hobbit" needed to snap out of his early-season funk (one assist in seven games prior to Monday), so keep an eye on him when the Rangers play again Saturday against Winnipeg.

Rangers' Zuccarello Gets First Point

News: Mats Zuccarello notched his first point of the season Thursday, assisting on Derick Brassard's tally in an eventual shootout win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: An early shoulder injury cost Mats Zuccarello a game and made him less effective in two others, but he seems to be feeling better now and should start finding the scoresheet more consistently going forward.

Rangers' Zuccarello To Play Tuesday

News: Mats Zuccarello (shoulder) will play in Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello missed the Rangers' last game due to the injury, but he will return to action Tuesday night in search of his first point of the season.

Rangers' Zuccarello Likely Back In Tuesday

News: Mats Zuccarello (shoulder) is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday night against the Islanders, reports Newsday's Steve Zipay.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello was back on the ice for morning skate and line rushes Tuesday, so it looks like his absence due to the shoulder ailment will be limited to one game. While he hasn't yet found the scoresheet, Zuccarello is coming off a 59-point breakout last season and could crack 60 this year if he stays healthy.

Rangers' Zuccarello (Shoulder) Out Sunday

News: Mats Zuccarello (shoulder) will not play Sunday against the Maple Leafs, The Record reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello sustained a shoulder injury in Saturday's game and is being held out as a precaution. He's yet to record a point on the year and has a minus-four differential.

Rangers' Zuccarello Questionable Sunday

News: Mats Zuccarello is dealing with a shoulder injury and his status is in question for Sunday's game against the Maple Leafs, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Mats Zuccarello has no points, four shots on goal and nine penalty minutes through two games this season, but sports a minus-4 goal differential as well. It's already confirmed that Kevin Hayes will dress Sunday, and if Zuccarello can't, Ryan Malone will likely dress as well.

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 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.
