After reports surfaced earlier this morning about a possible reunion between the New York Rangers, and Mats Zuccarello, there appears to be more steam behind these rumors. According to Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News, representatives of Mats Zuccarello will be in New York City tomorrow to speak with the New York Rangers about a possible return of the gritty Norwegian forward.
Zuccarello, who is currently in the playoffs with his KHL club Metallurg Magnitogorsk, must finish out the year before eyeing a return to the NHL with the Rangers. Because the Rangers still own Zuccarello's rights, they have the option to re-sign him after the conclusion of the KHL season, and bring him in for the remainder of the season.
