Mats Zuccarello injured in first game with Dallas Stars will miss four weeks By Peter Hassett  0 Comment

The Dallas Stars have acquired forward Mats Zuccarello from the New York Rangers to bolster their push for a playoff spot. The rebuild is officially on for the Rangers, who now sit 10 points shy of a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference.

Rangers GM Jeff Gorton, who was expecting a second-round pick and a prospect for Zuccarello, got creative with the Stars and managed to get some conditions that could make the deal a home run. The second rounder can become a first rounder if the Stars win two playoff rounds. The third-round pick in the 2020 draft will become a first-round selection if the Stars re-sign Zuccarello in the offseason.

"The message is we have to go do it now", Nill said. NY held Zuccarello out of Saturday's game.

Zuccarello, who will become an unrestricted free agent at season's end, was widely seen as one of the top trade chips ahead of Monday's trade deadline.
