  • Zibanejad picked up a power-play assist to counter a minus-2 rating and eight empty shots on goal in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime home loss to the Penguins. The seventh-year Swede is a legitimate threat to score or set one up on any given night -- he's collected five goals and a helper through his first give games -- but Zibanejad has skated to a minus-6 rating in the early going and he's really struggling with his own-zone play. The silver lining is that the plus-minus stat isn't counted in select formats; here's hoping that applies to you if you've been relying on the top-line pivot donning the blue shirt.

  • Zibanejad scored a power-play goal in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Blues. Zibanejad continued his torrid start to the season with his fifth goal and fourth power-play tally in four games just 2:22 in. The 24-year-old pivot's having no trouble adjusting to the first-line center role in the wake of Derek Stepan's offseason trade to Arizona, but he hasn't gotten much help from his teammates yet. Zibanejad played at a career-best 54-point pace last year after seeing his point total rise in each of his first five NHL campaigns, and it appears his growth has continued this season.

  • Zibanejad potted his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's win over Montreal. Zibanejad has started the season with a bang, finding twine in all three contests thus far. The 24-year-old only netted 14 goals in an injury-riddled debut season with the Rangers, but he's showing he means business this time around. Zibanejad has always had a lethal shot, so given his top-line role and extensive power-play time, the former Senator is worth looking at in almost every league right now.

  • Zibanejad pocketed two first-period goals, both on the power play, in a 4-2 loss to the Avalanche on Thursday. Both goals came from powerful one-timers by the 24-year-old Swede, including one off a wonderful pass by Kevin Shattenkirk in his team debut. After missing 25 games last season, Zibanejad's presence on New York's top line will be vital to the team's success this season. The Rangers will need him to replicate his production Saturday, as they are faced with a tough road matchup against Toronto.

  • Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Secures long-term contract
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zibanejad put pen to paper Tuesday on a five-year deal with the Rangers worth $26.75 million. Zibanejad will earn an average annual value of $5.35 million -- on par with the deals given to Tampa Bay's Ondrej Palat and Detroit's Tomas Tatar. In his first year with New York, Zibanejad was limited to 56 appearances after suffering a broken fibula in mid-November. When he was healthy, the center racked up 14 goals and 23 assists. If he can suit up for a full 82 games -- or at least 70-plus -- the 24-year-old should get back to being the 20-goal scorer he was with the Senators.
