Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Four-point effort in win
Zuccarello collected a goal and three helpers in Monday's 10-7 win over the Canucks.
With the Wild down 5-2 in the second period, Zuccarello scored his only goal of the game by deflecting a shot off his skate into the back of the net on a pass from Kirill Kaprizov. Not only did his goal cut the lead to two, but it started an onslaught of Minnesota goals as they scored six unanswered on Vancouver. All of Zuccarello's points, including three straight power-play assists, were during that barrage. He also added two PIM, one shot on net, a hit and a minus-2 rating in 18:14 of ice time....

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Nets power-play marker
Zuccarello scored a power-play goal on three shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.
This was Zuccarello's first goal in seven games and his first point in three outings. He converted on a pass from Kirill Kaprizov midway through the first period. Zuccarello's recent dip in offense has seen him land on the second line at even strength, but he remains on the top power-play unit. The 36-year-old winger has racked up nine goals, 40 points (21 on the power play), 106 shots on net and a minus-1 rating as a strong top-six playmaker for the Wild through 43 appearances....

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Two points in loss
Zuccarello registered two assists, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks.
Zuccarello will likely get credit for two points either way -- his assist on the Wild's second goal may eventually be changed to his tally given that it looked like his shot never touched Jon Merrill. With nine points over his last seven outings, Zuccarello is in fine playmaking form on the top line. For the season, he's produced 39 points, 101 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 40 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Under the weather
Zuccarello (illness) was not at practice Friday, leaving his status for Saturday's game against Anaheim in doubt, according to Michael Russo of The Athletic.
The Wild will see how Zucc feels Saturday before making a decision on his status. Zuccarello has seven points in his last six games, giving the Norwegian winger nine goals and 37 points in 39 games this season. He plays on the top line with Kirill Kaprizov and Marco Rossi as well as seeing first power-play time. Should Zuccarello not play against the Ducks, look for Matt Boldy to take his spot on the top line, with Marcus Johansson filling in for him on the power play.... See More ... See Less

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Designated for IR
Zuccarello (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Zuccarello was deemed week-to-week ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Boston, so his designation for IR shouldn't come as a surprise. Thanks to the Christmas break, the IR tag won't impact his availability, as he will already have missed the required number of days when the Wild face the Red Wings on Dec. 27. However, whether he'll be ready to for that contest remains in doubt at this point.... See More ... See Less

Wild's Mats Zuccarello: Delivers helper in win
Zuccarello logged an assist in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Kraken.
Head coach John Hynes made his first bold move in his new role, splitting up Zuccarello and Kirill Kaprizov at even strength. It worked this time, with Zuccarello getting back on the scoresheet after a two-game slump following his 10-game, 14-point streak. The 36-year-old winger has six goals, 22 assists, 68 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 26 contests overall. He remains on the first power-play unit, so a short-term change at even strength is unlikely to have a significant negative impact on his offense.... See More ... See Less
