New York Rangers re-sign Zuccarello for one year

One of the final pieces of the Rangers’ restricted-free agents puzzle is set in place, as the team announced that they have re-signed center Mats Zuccarello to a one year deal, worth a reported $1.15 million.

Zuccarello played an integral part in the Rangers postseason success, albeit only lasted to the Eastern Conference Semifinals, where they would fall to the Boston Bruins. He had six playoff assists and seven playoff points in just twelve postseason games this past season.

Looking at the season as a whole, Zuccarello didn’t perform poorly in the fifteen regular season games he played in, accounting for just three goals and five assists. But the New York Rangers knew that they wanted to keep him around, for at least another year.

The last and final piece of this RFA puzzle for the team is first-line center Derek Stepan, who had eighteen goals and twenty-six assists in 48 games this past season.
