Zuccarello produced 15 goals and 37 points in 65 games prior to the suspension of play in mid-March. Zuccarello's first season with the Wild has gone rather unspectacularly. He recorded 37 points in 46 games with the Rangers last year before being shipped to Dallas and suffering a season-ending injury in just his second game with the club. The Norwegian is a ways off the 61, 59 and 53 points he put up in the three prior campaigns, so it might be worth adjusting your expectations as he enters his age-33 season.
Zuccarello scored a goal in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ducks. Zuccarello hadn't scored since Feb. 1, a span of 17 contests during which he amassed seven helpers. The Norwegian winger is up to 15 goals, 37 points, 96 shots and a minus-9 rating through 65 games. He's always been more of a play-maker than a finisher, but Zuccarello is likely going to miss the 50-point mark for the second straight year.
Zuccarello picked up two assists Saturday in a 7-3 loss to the Kings. He has just six points -- all assists -- in his last 16 games. Zuccarello has gone 17 games without a goal and has just 36 points in 64 games this season. Minnesota has not been kind to the Norwegian Hobbit. He can't be trusted in fantasy right now.
Zuccarello recorded an assist in Friday's 5-3 win over the Oilers. Zuccarello now has three assists over his last two games, which followed a six-game drought. The 32-year-old has posted 33 points in 56 contests this year. He seems to be meshing well with Alex Galchenyuk on the opposite wing -- Zuccarello can contribute enough to interest fantasy owners in deeper formats.
Zuccarello managed two assists and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks. Zuccarello also kept the Wild alive with a tally in the third round of the shootout. The Norwegian snapped a six-game point drought with his two-point effort. He's at 32 points (14 goals, 18 assists) and 86 shots in 55 contests. While somewhat streaky, Zuccarello should have a good chance of reaching the 40-point threshold for the seventh straight year.
