Mats Zuccarello met Britney Spears

He is having a good off-season. Mats Zuccarello is awesome. We all know this. But good news: now Britney Spears knows it, too. Thanks @PHVegas and @britneyspears for a great show here in vegas #britney #b**** pic.twitter.com/r4jSVA0pTz — Mats Zuccarello (@zuccarello36) June 23, 2016 Spears is currently performing in Las Vegas. It just so happens Zuccarello was there for the NHL Awards, in which he was a finalist for the Masterton Trophy. And while he didn't win it - though he certainly embodies everything the trophy is about - it looks like he's making excellent use of trip no...

Henrik Lundqvist will play in Mats Zuccarello's charity game

When Zuccarello says it's an all-star game, he isn't kidding. Last year, Mats Zuccarello's charity game as huge news. Not just for Right to Play, the charity he supports in order to help spread sport and build programs in countries that may not have it, but because he himself was playing in the game: the first time he'd take to the ice since suffering brain damage during the 2015 Stanley Cup playoffs. It wasn't a hard-hitting game, so Zuccarello was able to make his way back onto the ice for it, along with several New York Rangers teammates: at the time, Derick Brassard, Carl Hagelin,...

Mats Zuccarello: policeman

He totally looks the part! Mats Zuccarello is one of the best parts of the New York Rangers. Not only is he a fantastic story - small, undrafted player out of a country not particularly known for hockey, and one of the few Norwegians to actually play in the NHL - but he's damn good at the game, too. It's kind of impossible not to love him. So going several months without him any capacity whatsoever? That kinda sucks; the off-season can be cruel that way. So if Zucc is inclined to share bits of his off-season life with us, who's going to say no? Most recently, he seems to be showing some...

Mats Zuccarello is the face of a chocolate bar

Because when you think of Norwegian chocolate, you think of-- wait, this is getting away from me. A couple of months ago, Mats Zuccarello shared a rather interesting little video on his Instagram. It comes from a time of shooting commercials - specifically, commercials for Lion Bar, a chocolate bar that's evidently popular in Norway. Always lots of action working with Lion A video posted by matszuccarello (@matszuccarello) on Mar 30, 2016 at 6:02am PDT But they didn't stop there. In fact, there's a series of adds featuring Zuccarello and... well, a lion that appears to be his...

Rangers player evaluations — Jesper Fast

Sometimes you think a player like Jesper Fast is an acquired taste, and one who would go unappreciated by fans. But when we did our poll to see who the fans thought should win the Steven McDonald Extra Effort award — which was won by Mats Zuccarello — Fast was our leading vote-getter with more [...] The post Rangers player evaluations — Jesper Fast appeared first on Rangers Report.

Rangers player evaluations — Derek Stepan

Before we resume our series today, I just want to try to make it clear again. The grades are based on my expectations of each player. So I’m not comparing Jesper Fast to Mats Zuccarello or Dylan McIlrath to Ryan McDonagh, OK? Also, FWIW, the grade is actually an afterthought. Completely meaningless, in my opinion.
