  • Wild's Jason Zucker: Protected by Minnesota

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/18/17) Zucker (hernia) ended up on Minnesota's protected list, meaning he won't be an option for the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, the Star Tribune reports.

    Zucker is fresh off a banner season with the Wild, as he dropped in 22 goals, 25 assists and an outstanding plus-30 rating over 79 regular-season games. He sputtered a bit in the playoffs with Minnesota eliminated from contention in the conference quarterfinals for the second straight year, but losing a point-packing forward to an expansion franchise for no return understandably wasn't in the cards for GM Chuck Fletcher.

    Wild's Jason Zucker: Told to scale back recovery efforts

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/17/17) Zucker has looked so good following bilateral core muscle surgery that GM Chuck Fletcher told the winger to "slow it down," the Star Tribune reports.

    Considering that he is only four weeks removed from surgery to repair a sports hernia, the big boss has pumped the brakes on Zucker's activity level. "It's amazing a surgery like that can get you back in four weeks now," Fletcher said. Remember, Zucker played through the injury, and with positive reports early in the offseason, his fantasy stock shouldn't be negatively affected.

    Wild's Jason Zucker: Undergoes successful surgery

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/4/17) Zucker's operation to repair a sports hernia went as planned, and he's expected to be healthy for the start of training camp.

    The Las Vegas native had a bounceback season in 2016-17, tallying career bests in games played (79), goals (22), assists (25), points (47) and plus-minus (plus-34). It's unclear how long Zucker played through the injury, but it makes you wonder how much more productive he could've been if fully healthy and if he averaged more than 16 seconds of power-play time per game. Should his recovery follow the announced timeline, Zucker is definitely a player to keep an eye on in 2017-18.

    Wild's Jason Zucker: Going under knife due to sports hernia

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/17) Zucker will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia Thursday, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

    An official recovery timetable is expected to be released by the Wild following the surgical procedure itself, but this latest report notes that Minnesota players who have undergone a similar operation have generally recovered in time for training camp. Zucker recorded just one point in the conference quarterfinal round against the Blues -- a clutch marker in Game 5 to force overtime in what still culminated as a series-ending loss.

    Wild's Jason Zucker: Game-tying goal proves fruitless

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/23/17) Zucker forced overtime with a beautiful goal in Saturday's Game 5 against the Blues, but the Wild ended up losing in overtime.

    Zucker jumped out on a rush and did a little shake-and-bake maneuver on goalie Jake Allen to record his first and only goal of the series. While certainly no consolation for his team losing in Round 1, the tally was nice for Zucker after the California native went scoreless in six games of the playoffs last year.
