  • Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Scores goal in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:22 am ET) Zibanejad found the twine during a 7-4 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

    Zibanejad has been skating on both the top line and power-play unit lately, and although he's scored four goals in his last 10 games, he hasn't recorded any assists to complement his scoring touch. That could be due to his shoot-first mentality as he's launched 32 shots on goal during that span, and his 143 on the season is second on the Rangers, only trailing Rick Nash. The Swede should continue to find himself in advantageous offensive situations, and is just five goals away from setting a new career high in the category.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Picks up two points, elusive shorthanded apple

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Zibanejad generated a pair of assists -- including a shorthanded helper -- in Tuesday's 6-3 road loss to the Ducks.

    Zibanejad is vital to the success of the Blueshirts, as he's deployed in all situations and averages close to 18 minutes of ice time per game. He's equally adept at scoring and setting up goals of his own, as illustrated by his 14 goals and 14 assists apiece through 40 games this season. However, a major downside is that Zibanejad can be maddeningly streaky from one game to the next.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Gets power-play mojo back

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/4/18) Zibanejad netted a power-play goal in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Chicago.

    Zibanejad's timing had been off since he returned from a concussion two weeks ago, and a New York power play that relies on feeding the right-handed shot one-time opportunities had been paying the price. The extra space created by a 5-on-3 situation was exactly what Zibanejad needed to regain the confidence in his shot, as he buried a rocket to tie the game 2-2 in the second. Half of his 12 goals in 31 appearances have come with the extra man.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Unremarkable return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/20/17) Zibanejad threw a single shot on goal and delivered one hit in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over Anaheim.

    Tuesday was Zibanejad's first time in the lineup since Nov. 26, as he was forced to miss nine games while dealing with the effects of a concussion. Head coach Alain Vigneault used caution when deploying Zibanejad on Tuesday, as the second-year Ranger saw 13:32 of ice, which is substantially less than his season average of 18:07. Zibanejad was enjoying a breakout season prior to the injury, scoring 22 points in 24 contests, and should get back to top form as he continues to settle back into the lineup.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Ready for Tuesday return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/19/17) Zibanejad (concussion) will be in the lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Ducks, NHL.com reports.

    Zibanejad makes his long-awaited return to action after a nine-game absence and is slated to center the Rangers' first line with Chris Kreider and Pavel Buchnevich on his wings. The 24-year-old was nearing a point-per-game pace prior to going down with the injury, so he'll look to pick up where he left off against a Ducks team that has allowed eight goals in its last two contests.
