Mats Zuccarello recorded three assists in a 7-6 loss to Dallas Tuesday night.

Zuccarello hasn't found the back of the net since Dec. 15, but he's still been held off the scoresheet in just two of his last 12 games. He has eight goals and 35 points in 45 contests in 2016-17.

Mats Zuccarello has not scored against a goalie in two months.

Zuccarello has one goal in his last 27 games but that was an empty netter as the last time he found the back of the net with a goalie in the crease was November 15th against Jacob Markstrom. He has been an assists machine with 12 in his last 11 games however. "I’ve never evaluated my game by goals or even points," Zuccarello said. "I feel like I can have my best game and not score a goal and then struggle in the next game and get two or three. I feel like I’m creating chances at one end and I think I’m doing the job in the defensive zone, blocking shots and doing what I can there. It’s about the team, not any one individual." Zuccarello has eight goals and 32 points this season and is worthy of being on someone's fantasy squad in most pools.

Mats Zuccarello picked up a pair of helpers during Saturday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.

It's been a bit of a down season for the veteran winger, who's now up to 10 helpers and 17 points in 26 games. Then again with that kind of rate, who's really complaining.

Mats Zuccarello may sit out all the pre-season games for the Rangers this season.

Zuccarello has gotten into plenty of action in September and at a high caliber as he was a big part of Team Europe at the recent World Championships as well as on Norway in Olympic qualifying. The talented Norwegian set a career mark last season with 26 goals and 61 points. Look for a slight regression if anything from Zuccarello this season.

Mats Zuccarello has seen two of his best friends get traded away during the last two summers.

Last year, the Rangers traded Carl Hagelin to Anaheim and this year, they shipped Derrick Brassard to Ottawa. "Don’t be friends with me," Zuccarello said. "Or else you might be traded. I know it’s the business, I understand that. Management is doing what they think is best for the team to make us better. But as a human being and a friend, I don’t appreciate it. I’ve lost my two best friends, and in that way I don’t think about hockey. Personally, I’m really sad to lose them." It'll be interesting to see how the loss of Brassard affects Zuccarello on the ice.
