Wild's Zucker Out 3 Months With Ailing Shoulder

News: Jason Zucker will require surgery on a broken clavicle suffered in Monday's game against the Canucks and will be out for three months, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Barring an unexpected deep playoff run by the Wild, Jason Zucker will have his second consecutive season end early due to surgery, after requiring a procedure on his left quad tendon last March. This setback is arguably more troubling for Zucker, as it comes in the midst of what has been a highly impressive season for the 22-year-old. After not being guaranteed of an Opening Night roster spot heading into training camp, Zucker played his way into a top-six role for the Wild, tallying 18 goals over 48 games. In Zucker's absence, Nino Niederreiter is set to join the Wild's second line of Mikko Koivu and Jason Pominville.

Wild Place Zucker On IR

News: Jason Zucker (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, KSTP.com reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo indicated Jason Zucker would be in line for an extended absence after leaving Monday's game against the Canucks with the injury, and his placement on IR would seem to verify that. Zucker won't be eligible to return to action until the Wild's Feb. 18 game against the Flames, but he would probably need to practice a few days before that date to have even a shot at playing. It doesn't sound like the Wild are optimistic on that front, so it's possible Zucker might be out for multiple weeks.

Wild's Zucker Suffers Upper-Body Injury

News: Jason Zucker suffered an upper-body injury during Monday's game against the Canucks and is expected to be sidelined for extended time, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: An official timetable for Jason Zucker's return to the ice has not been released, although coach Mike Yeo said that he doesn't expect Zucker back on the ice in the near future. As a result, the 23-year-old should be considered out until further news is released by the Wild.

Wild's Zucker: Goals In Back-To-Back Games

News: Jason Zucker potted his 18th goal of the season in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Jason Zucker has scored in back-to-back contests and trails only Zach Parise for the team goal lead. His sniping abilities should keep him locked into a second-line role ahead of fellow youngsters Charlie Coyle and Nino Niederreiter, neither of whom have matched Zucker's production of late.

Wild's Zucker Scores Game-Winner

News: Jason Zucker netted the game-winning goal Saturday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The goal was Jason Zucker's 16th of the season and his first point in five games. The 23-year-old is currently playing on the top line with Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise, making him an appealing fantasy option. He's among the league's top-30 goal-scorers this season and has been credited with a solid 99 shots on goal. He won't post whooping overall point totals, but Zucker could reach 30 goals this season, making him worth a look in deeper formats.

Wild's Zucker A Smash Hit On Top Line

News: Jason Zucker bagged his 15th goal of the season and attempted five shots in Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Jason Zucker has been stellar during his two-game trial on the top line in place of Zach Parise. He's now tallied three goals, an assist and 13 shots, allowing him to overtake Parise and Nino Niederreiter for the team goal lead. If he's still floating around on the waiver wire, Zucker is probably worth scooping up -- at least while he retains a cushy role on the top trio.

Zucker's Three Points Not Enough For Wild

News: Jason Zucker factored into all three Minnesota goals Tuesday, scoring two and notching the primary assist on Jared Spurgeon's tally, but it wasn't enough in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: Well, you can't blame Jason Zucker, who went plus-3 on the night and unleashed eight shots on goal (his second-highest total of the season) over nearly 19 minutes of ice time. An impressive way to bounce back from the minus-4 rating he posted in a disastrous loss to Dallas on Saturday.

Wild's Zucker On Track To Play Saturday

News: Jason Zucker (illness) is set to rejoin the lineup Saturday against the Stars, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jason Zucker seemed on track to play Friday after taking part in line rushes at the team's morning skate, but coach Mike Yeo likely chose to keep him out with the team kicking off a back-to-back set. With more time off to recover following Saturday's contest, Zucker should be in line for his usual 15 minutes of ice time. The winger has bagged 12 goals in 32 games this season, good for third on the team.

Wild's Zucker (Illness) Out Friday

News: Jason Zucker (illness) will not play Friday against the Maple Leafs, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jason Zucker's illness will hold him out of the lineup until at least Saturday's contest against the Stars. Tyler Graovac will draw into the lineup in his place, making his home debut for the Wild.

Wild's Zucker A Game-Time Decision Friday

News: Jason Zucker (illness) will be a game-time decision for Friday's tilt with the Maple Leafs, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Though Jason Zucker was able to take part in line rushes at the team's morning skate, coach Mike Yeo said the forward was "definitely an if" for Friday's game. He's logged only one practice in the eight days, so Yeo could opt to sit him out another contest to afford him more recovery time.

Wild's Zucker (Illness) Skating Thursday

News: Jason Zucker (illness) took part in Thursday's optional skate.
Analysis: Jason Zucker has missed the last three games, including Wednesday's matchup with Columbus, with a stomach virus, but his presence at Thursday's session indicates he could be set for a return Friday.

Wild's Zucker Prepared To Sit Again Wednesday

News: Jason Zucker (illness) is projected to miss Wednesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Coach Mike Yeo said Tuesday that Jason Zucker is still lacking energy while continuing to battle the illness. He's set to miss his third straight game with what is being classified as a stomach virus.

Wild's Zucker Out With Illness

News: Jason Zucker (illness) will not play in Monday's game at Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He missed Saturday's game with a stomach ailment and it's not clear when he may return.

Jason Zucker

Wild's Zucker Out With Illness

News: Jason Zucker will miss Saturday's game against Winnipeg due to the flu, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: The Wild have been hit hard by both the mumps and stomach flu this season, but fortunately for Jason Zucker, it looks like he has the latter condition. It doesn't sound like a long-term ailment at this point, and he hasn't been ruled out from playing in Monday's rematch with the Jets.

Wild's Zucker Scores In Win

News: Jason Zucker notched a goal in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: The winger opened the scoring just 19 seconds into the first period, and now has 10 goals and three assists in 24 games this season. With five points in his last five games, he'll turn out to be a really valuable fantasy player if he can keep up his current pace.

Jason Zucker

Wild's Zucker Scores Again

News: Jason Zucker scored his ninth goal of the season in Friday's win over Dallas. He played despite skating with a charley horse, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Jason Zucker's surprising strong to the season just keeps going as it's his fifth goal in his last five games.

Wild's Zucker Snipes Two Monday

News: Jason Zucker potted a pair of goals -- his seventh and eighth of the season -- while skating to a plus-2 and firing a career-high nine shots on goal in Monday's 4-1 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Looking at the stat line, you'd think it was star winger Zach Parise firing that much rubber on net, not a third-liner in Jason Zucker. It's hard to imagine the fourth-year NHLer continuing to put pucks in the net at this rate, but the fact that he has more goals than teammates (and fantasy mainstays) Jason Pominville, Mikael Granlund, Mikko Koivu and Thomas Vanek shows that he's earned fantasy relevance this year.

Wild's Zucker Snaps Slump With Goal

News: Jason Zucker finally put an end to his eight-game scoring slump Thursday by potting the game-winning goal against the Flyers with 46 seconds remaining in the third period.
Analysis: Well, if you're only going to score once in the month of November -- his last point was an Oct. 30 assist -- you'd better at least make it a big goal. Jason Zucker did just that. He still occupies a fairly sizable role for Wild, so the points should come with a bit more frequency going forward.

Wild's Zucker Gets Assist In Second-Line Debut

News: Jason Zucker assisted on Marco Scandella's game-winning tally in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Bruins.
Analysis: Elevated from a bottom-six role to the Wild's second line with Mikko Koivu and Charlie Coyle, Jason Zucker saw a season-high 15:38 of ice time and certainly seemed to hold his own against a tough Bruins squad. While Zucker still hasn't received much of an opportunity on the power play, his increased minutes at even strength with higher quality linemates has his fantasy value clearly on the rise.

Wild's Zucker Bags Another

News: Jason Zucker tallied his fifth goal of the season in Monday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Three of Jason Zucker's tallies have come in the last two games, allowing him to claim the team lead in that category for the season. It's a pretty remarkable feat, given Zucker's standing in the Wild's bottom six, a role that he may not have much longer if he continues to produce this well in limited minutes. Rather than moving him up a line or two, the Wild may be more interested in first giving Zucker more run on their power play, which is currently tied with the Sabres for dead last in the NHL.

Jason Zucker

Zucker A Wild Man With Two Goals

News: Jason Zucker scored two goals in Minnesota's 7-2 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday night. One of those goals came while short-handed.
Analysis: He's on his way to a Cy Young season with four goals and no assists in six games. More importantly, he has now equaled his career mark of four goals in a season.

Jason Zucker

Wild's Zucker Scores Again

News: Jason Zucker had his second goal of the season in 7:49 of ice time in Friday's loss to Anaheim.
Analysis: Jason Zucker is getting less than ten minutes of ice time per game on the fourth line, but he's made the most of it so far with two goals in three games.

Wild's Zucker Scores Goal

News: Jason Zucker had a goal on two shots in 9:41 of ice time in Saturday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: A strong game for Jason Zucker, but his upside is limited because he won't get a ton of ice time on the fourth line.

Wild's Zucker Makes NHL Roster

News: Jason Zucker has made the final NHL roster for the Wild, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Wild's Zucker Back To Full Speed

News: Jason Zucker had an assist in 21 minutes of ice time in Monday's preseason loss to Winnipeg.
Analysis: It was Jason Zucker's first game since season-ending knee surgery. He looked back to full speed and will compete for a spot on the fourth line.
