Zucker tallied two goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal, in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win versus Chicago.

The first-line winger, after going pointless in the season's first pair of games, recorded three points and a whopping 10 shots Thursday. He gave Minnesota the win when he beat Blackhawks goalie Cam Ward on a breakaway in overtime. The Wild have high hopes for the 26-year-old Zucker, who is coming off a career year that saw him produce 64 points in 82 games.
