Penguins' Jason Zucker: Goals in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker potted a power-play goal on five shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3.

Zucker has tallied in consecutive games. The California native has added 11 shots in three contests during the series in his second-line role alongside Evgeni Malkin and Bryan Rust.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Tallies game-winner Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker netted a goal in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

Zucker tapped in a cross-crease pass from Conor Sheary in the third period. The tally gave the Penguins some breathing room, as it extended the lead to 2-0. Zucker had 12 points in 15 games after being traded from Minnesota to Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old winger is capable of producing solid offense in a top-six role.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Bags goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's exhibition matchup with the Flyers.

Zucker picked up a rebound in front of the crease to tie the game and force overtime. Originally brought in to play on the wing with Sidney Crosby, Zucker is set to join Evgeni Malkin on the second line instead now that Jake Guetnzel is healthy. Still, playing with either of the Pens' world-class centers will give Zucker plenty of chances to find the back of the net during the postseason.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Three-point performance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Senators.

He continues to thrive alongside Sidney Crosby. Zucker has racked up six goals and 10 points over the last 10 games, and while he might not stay hot enough to match his career-best campaign from 2017-18 (33 goals, 64 points), the 28-year-old figures to be very productive down the stretch.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Tallies both goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored two goals -- one on the power play -- in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.

Zucker was good, but his teammates didn't add anything to the offense. He's racked up five goals and two helpers in nine games since he was traded to the Penguins from the Wild. The 28-year-old winger is up to 19 tallies, 36 points, 100 shots and a minus-4 rating in 54 contests this year.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Scores goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored a power-play goal on six shots against Toronto on Tuesday.

Zucker has been on a tear since joining the Penguins, as he is riding a three-game point streak during which he's registered three goals, one helper and nine shots. Paired up on the top line with Sidney Crosby, the 27-year-old Zucker should be a near lock to reach the 40-point mark for the fourth straight year.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Grabs assist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker recorded an assist in Sunday's 5-1 win over Detroit.

In just three games with the Penguins, Zucker has already racked up two goals, one helper and eight shots while averaging 17:14 of ice time. As long as the 27-year-old continues to feature on the top line with Sidney Crosby, he will be an elite fantasy option the rest of the way.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Pots first two as Penguin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored two goals in Friday's 4-1 win over the Canadiens.

The two tallies came 102 seconds apart late in the second period, and the first proved to be the game-winner. Zucker, as many wingers have before him, is flashing immediate chemistry with Sidney Crosby, needing only two games to make his first impact on the scoresheet in a Pittsburgh jersey. On the season, Zucker has 16 goals and 31 points through 47 games, but he could pick up the pace in a significant way down the stretch.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Set to play with Crosby
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker will be in Pittsburgh in time for Tuesday's clash with Tampa Bay and is expected to play on the first line with Sidney Crosby, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

Coach Mike Sullivan will immediately throw Zucker into the mix on the top line and could even give him a look on the power play. In 45 games with the Wild, the winger racked up 14 goals and should be a near lock for a fourth straight 20-plus goal campaign. With Crosby as his center, the 27-year-old Zucker figures to be a top-end fantasy option the rest of the year.

Penguins' Jason Zucker: Headed to Steel City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker was traded to Pittsburgh from Minnesota on Monday in exchange for Alex Galchenyuk, Calen Addison and a 2020 first-round pick, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

The 28-year-old had been subject to trade rumors since last season and a trade finally came to fruition Monday. Zucker had been one of the more dynamic forwards for the Wild, racking up 14 goals and 29 points through 45 games this season. Zucker will add a veteran presence to the lineup and could slot into the top-six right away for the Penguins.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Churns out power-play helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker registered a power-play assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

The 28-year-old winger has five points in his last five games. For the season, Zucker is at 29 points (nine with the man advantage), 71 shots on goal and 33 hits in 42 outings.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Drains go-ahead goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored a goal on four shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Red Wings.

Zucker scored just 1:07 after Mats Zuccarello tied the game for the Wild. Zucker's tally would stand as the game-winner, his second such goal this season. He's up to 28 points and 70 shots on goal in 40 contests.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Paces offense with three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker scored a power-play goal and added a pair of assists in Saturday's 7-0 win over the Stars.

Zucker had been held off the scoresheet in three games since returning from a broken fibula, but he made up for lost time with Saturday's outburst. The 27-year-old has 27 points (eight on the power play), 65 shots on goal and a minus-4 rating through 38 contests this season. Zucker usually plays in a top-six role, so he's worth a look in most fantasy formats.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower leg) will return to the lineup for Sunday's clash versus Vancouver, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Zucker will return to the lineup for the first time since the injury occurred on Dec. 15 against Chicago. The 27-year-old will be a welcomed addition to the lineup, especially considering he's racked up 24 points in 34 games this year. He's expected to assume the top-line left wing role for Sunday's game.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Game-time decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower leg) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Canucks, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.

Zucker returned to practice Saturday in full capacity, so he's trending in the right direction. However, he hasn't been medically cleared yet, per Michael Russo of The Athletic, so he could be eyeing a return Tuesday in Pittsburgh if he doesn't gain clearance for Sunday's tilt.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Participates in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower leg) suited up for Saturday's practice, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

It was the first time Zucker joined the Wild for practice since undergoing leg surgery Dec. 20. It's unclear if he'll be ready to suit up for Sunday's game against the Canucks, but the 27-year-old is nearing his return.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Nearing return to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Bruce Boudreau, Zucker (lower leg) could resume practicing as soon as Friday, Rachel Blount of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Friday will mark the three-week point of the 4-6 week recovery timetable Zucker was assigned Dec. 20, so his rehab appears to be right on schedule. The 27-year-old winger will need to participate in a number of full practices before rejoining the lineup, but a return to game action within the next week or so certainly isn't out of the question.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Undergoes surgery for broken fibula
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower leg) will miss four to six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured fibula.

Zucker was injured in Sunday's game versus the Blackhawks and is now facing an extended absence. He'll likely be moved to injured reserve at some point in the near future. Ryan Donato and Jordan Greenway have the best chance at competing for the second-line job that's opened up with Zucker unavailable.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Labeled week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower body) is week-to-week and will return to Minnesota, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

Zucker wasn't able to play in Tuesday's game against the Golden Knights, and he'll also miss Thursday's contest versus the Coyotes. Based on the week-to-week timeline, it would be shocking to see Zucker back in action before the league's holiday break. Jordan Greenway played in a top-six role Tuesday and may continue to do so while Zucker is out of action.

Wild's Jason Zucker: Won't play in Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zucker (lower body) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Golden Knights, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Wild will be without two top-six forwards since Mikko Koivu (lower body) is headed back to Minnesota. Zucker has been quite productive this year, as he's tied for second on the team with 12 goals through 34 games. It's unsettled who will fill into Zucker's role, but Jordan Greenway and Ryan Donato figures to be the leading candidates
