  • Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Secures long-term contract

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/25/17) 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.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Opts for salary arbitration

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/6/17) Zibanejad decided to file for arbitration Wednesday.

    Despite missing 25 games with a broken leg, Zibanejad still managed to tally 14 goals, 23 helpers and 119 shots on goal while averaging 17:04 of ice time. If not for the injury, the 24-year-old almost certainly would have registered a third straight 40-plus-point campaign and could have challenged his career-high 51 -- facts that no doubt will be presented to an arbitrator if the two sides can't reach an agreement ahead of the hearing date.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Mixed results in first season on Broadway

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/24/17) Zibanejad finished the 2016-17 campaign with 14 goals and 37 points in 56 games, then added nine points in 12 games during the Rangers' playoff run.

    He was off to a big start -- 15 points in 19 games -- but a broken leg cost him nearly two months, and Zibanejad wasn't nearly so productive upon returning. Still, his return gave the Rangers much-needed help at the faceoff dot as well as strong two-way play from their second-line center. A fully healthy 2017-18 should see Zibanejad exceed his career-high 51 points from two seasons ago.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Turns in solid Game 6 performance

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/17) Zibanejad scored a goal and added an assist with three shots on net during Tuesday's Game 6 loss to Ottawa.

    While it was Zibanejad's third multi-point outing of the playoffs, and he posted two goals and nine points through 12 games, he also missed the scoresheet entirely six times. The Rangers needed more offensive consistency from their entire lineup, but Zibanejad was also handed a scoring role between New York's best two wingers. There were still a lot of positives, though. Zibanejad was on the ice for the most high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes (12.9) of all Rangers during the playoffs. Capitalizing on those opportunities more frequently is the next step in becoming more than just a competent fantasy asset.

    Rangers' Mika Zibanejad: Records two assists in overtime loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/17) Zibanejad collected two assists in Saturday's Game 2 overtime loss to Ottawa.

    The pivot has been dangerous in the postseason, and he's found the scoresheet in three of the past four games (one goal, four assists). Zibanejad's been on the ice for 10.64 high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes at five-on-five, which is the highest mark among New York forwards. He's also presenting nice value as a mid-priced target in daily contests.
