Rangers' Mats Zuccarello: Enjoying big minutes early

Zuccarello skated 20:08 in Saturday's loss to the Blues, though he went without a point. He has one goal through two games to start the 2016-17 season.

The Rangers' top line of Zuccarello, Derek Stepan and Jimmy Vesey has been roundly outproduced by the second line, but it's still very early. With a 61-point 2015-16 in his back pocket and premium minutes nearly guaranteed all year long, the wizardly Norwegian remains a strong fantasy play.
