Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Notches pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello scored a goal on two shots and added an assist in Friday's 5-1 win over the Coyotes.

Zuccarello opened the scoring at 4:27 of the first period. He also assisted on Nick Bjugstad's goal exactly 10 minutes later. The two-point effort helped Zuccarello end a two-game dry spell. The Norwegian winger is up to four goals and nine helpers through only 10 appearances this season.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Assist keeps point streak alive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello notched an assist and four shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 win over the Kings.

Zuccarello extended his point streak to five games with the secondary helper on Kirill Kaprizov's opening tally. In that span, Zuccarello has amassed three goals and seven helpers. The Norwegian winger is thriving in a top-six role for the Wild, and his return seems to have revitalized the team's offense as a whole. The 33-year-old Zuccarello will eventually cool off from this impressive pace, but he should be a steady contributor.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Stays hot with pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello scored a goal and dished an assist in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Avalanche.

Zuccarello opened the scoring for the third straight game with his tally at 9:44 of the first period. He also had a hand in Ryan Hartman's third-period tally. Zuccarello has been on fire with three tallies and six helpers in his last four outings. The Norwegian winger also reached the 400-point mark for his career in Wednesday's win -- he's at 401 points (132 goals, 269 assists) through 581 career games.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Pops off with four points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello scored a goal and supplied a trio of assists in Monday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.

Zuccarello's line with Kirill Kaprizov and Victor Rask combined for nine points in Monday's dominant win. The 33-year-old Zuccarello continued his torrid start to the season with seven points through four outings so far. Obviously, he won't keep up this pace, but the Norwegian winger is one of the hotter scorers in hockey right now, so fantasy managers should attempt to find room for him in their lineups.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: One of each Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello scored a goal on two shots and supplied an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Ducks.

Zuccarello opened the scoring at 15:07 of the first period. He also helped out on a Victor Rask goal in the third. Zuccarello's posted three points in as many games since returning from arm surgery. He's earned a top-six role based on the early returns -- the Norwegian winger could be a solid pickup in fantasy for his scoring potential.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Earns first assist of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello posted an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over the Ducks.

Zuccarello was playing in just his second game since he was activated from injured reserve. The Norwegian winger underwent arm surgery in December and is just getting back into action. He skated 16:31 on Thursday, up from 13:00 in his season debut Tuesday. The 33-year-old had a decent 37 points in 65 outings last year, so fantasy managers should expect him to land somewhere between 20 and 25 points in 2020-21 if he maintains a similar pace.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Activated from LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello (arm) was activated from long-term injured reserve Monday.

Zuccarello underwent arm surgery in December. He'll make his season debut in Tuesday's game versus the Kings. Last year, the 33-year-old posted 15 goals and 22 assists across 65 contests with the Wild. Zuccarello should play in the top six, supplemented by consistent power-play usage.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Season debut confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dean Evason said Sunday that Zuccarello (arm) will make his season debut against the Kings on Tuesday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Zuccarello has yet to play this season due to the arm injury, but he was finally cleared by team doctors to return to the ice. Last season the veteran racked up 15 goals and 37 points across 65 games for the Wild, after he signed a lucrative five-year, $30 million contract in July of 2019. The 33-year-old will likely be a huge boost to the offense, as he's expected to handle a top-six role while seeing power-play ice time. Zuccarello will still need to be activated off injured reserve and added to the roster ahead of Tuesday's game.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Could debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello (arm) could make his season debut Tuesday against the Kings, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Zuccarello has yet to play this season due to an arm injury, but it sounds like he's now close to 100 percent healthy. Once given the green light, the 33-year-old Norway native should slot into a top-six role as well as a spot on one of the Wild's power-play units. He picked up 15 goals and 22 helpers in 65 games last campaign.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Shifts to LTIR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello was placed on long-term injured reserve Sunday, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Zuccarello has yet to suit up this season after undergoing surgery on his arm in December. He's still skating alone in practice, and it's unclear when he'll be close to rejoining his team. The 33-year-old scored 37 points in 65 games with the Wild last season.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Continues skating solo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello (arm) was on the ice again Thursday but remains without a clear timeline to return, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

The fact that Zuccarello's recovery timeline remains unclear should be a red flag for fantasy players waiting for him to get back into the lineup. Eventually, the elite winger should be a lock for a top-six role and No. 1 power-play, which could warrant stashing him away.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Making progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello (arm) skated and stickhandled on his own Tuesday, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

Zuccarello remains without a definite timetable for his return after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right arm in mid-February, but he's clearly made significant progress in his recovery and could be cleared to join his teammates for practice sooner rather than later. The 33-year-old Norweigan will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2019-20 campaign in which he totaled just 15 goals and 37 points in 65 games.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Will miss start of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right arm in mid-February and won't be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

A definite timetable for Zuccarello's recovery has yet to be established, but he'll miss the start of the regular season at a minimum, and according to Russo, he "may be out a good bit longer" than that. Zuccarello was apparently playing with discomfort in his arm for much of the 2019-20 campaign, which might at least partially explain why he was limited to just 15 goals and 37 points in 65 contests. The 33-year-old vet was already going to be a late-round pick in most formats prior to this news, so now that he's expected to miss at least a significant chunk of the upcoming season, he can be left on the board in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues during this year's drafts.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Garners power-play assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello had a power-play assist in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Zuccarello was held to just one assist in four games after a disappointing 37 points in 65 regular-season contests. The Norwegian winger has four years left on his contract with the Wild -- if he can't make improvements in 2020-21, he might have the makings of an expensive third-liner.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Pedestrian output in St. Paul
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Breaks lengthy goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Just six points in last 16 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

February 22, 2020 03:48 PM
Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Garners helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Dishes pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Sets up overtime winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zuccarello recorded an assist and two PIM in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

Zuccarello had the primary assist on Matt Dumba's game-winning tally. The Norwegian winger has collected three goals and three helpers over his last five games. For the year, the 32-year-old is at 30 points, 80 shots and a minus-8 rating through 48 games. Zuccarello will likely fall short of 50 points this season, but 40 is an attainable level.
