Mats Zuccarello is still out of action with a concussion.

The Rangers winger suffered the injury a month ago today and while he skated with the team on Thursday, he did not do so Friday. Don't count on him the remainder of the series and likely the Cup Final as well, if the Rangers make it that far.

There have been signs of improvement here and there, but as of Saturday, it sounds like Mats Zuccarello's still out indefinitely.

The New York Rangers have managed to tie their series with the Tampa Bay Lightning at 2-2, but they'd likely welcome his creativity in what has been a high-scoring few games. It's difficult to imagine him being back anytime soon, however.

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) skated Thursday with the extras, but he still isn't ready to join the team for practice.

Obviously, he won't be able to return until he does so. Zuccarello hasn't taken part in a full practice or played since Apr. 24.
May 21 - 2:54 PM

Earlier today, New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault noted that he "doesn't expect" forward Mats Zuccarello to skate while the team is in Tampa Bay.

Zuccarello has traveled with the team to Tampa, and the Rangers will play games three and four in Tampa on Wednesday and Friday respectively before returning to New York. Often injured, sick, or simply banged up players need to practice in order to return to the lineup and it appears Zuccarello will not fulfill this requirement through Sunday.
May 19 - 6:44 PM

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) skated on his own for about 15 minutes on Monday.

"Just going through the process of getting healthy," coach Alain Vigneault said. "He skated a little bit on his own today and I'm assuming that's going to get a little longer here as we move forward." However, he is still out indefinitely and is expected to miss his ninth straight game Monday night when the Rangers host Tampa Bay in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) isn't taking part in the Rangers' practice on Sunday.

The 27-year-old has played in just five playoff games because of the injury. Zuccarello hasn't been ruled out of the Eastern Conference Final, but his presence for Game Two is extremely doubtful.
May 17 - 12:10 PM

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) has yet to skate but has not been ruled out of the Eastern Conference Final.

Zuccarello suffered the injury on April 24. The Rangers say that Zuccarello is progressing and apparently has been working out off the ice. Stay tuned.

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) has begun to work out.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault hasn't ruled out the possibility of Zuccarello returning at some point during the Eastern Conference Final. That being said, it doesn't sound like he's close to playing. Zuccarello has been out since he was struck by a slap shot on April 24.
May 15 - 10:36 AM

Mats Zuccarello (upper body) could be available for the Eastern Conference Finals against Tampa Bay.

"He's coming along," coach Alain Vigneault said Wednesday night. Zuccarello hasn't played since Apr. 24 when he took a slap shot by teammate Ryan McDonagh to the head.

Even though he went with the Rangers to Washington, Mats Zuccarello (concussion) will not play.

Zuccarello is going to give his teammates a boost off the ice but the Norwegian is only doing some light work on the stationary bike and has not even begun to skate. Consider him out indefinitely at this time.
May 10 - 7:36 AM

While he hasn't made any definitive progress, it's an OK sign that Mats Zuccarello is at least with the New York Rangers in DC as they hope to extend their series against the Washington Capitals.

Again, though, it doesn't sound like he's any closer to playing, so keep expectations in check.
May 9 - 5:00 PM

Mats Zuccarello (concussion) watched Game 5 in Madison Square Garden but no update was provided.

Zuccarello was injured in Game 5 of the Pittsburgh series when he took a puck to his head and has not been able to play since. According to VG Sporten in Norway, Zuccarello is doing some work on the stationary bike but he still has to be considered out indefinitely at this time.
May 9 - 7:00 AM

Mats Zuccarello (upper body) didn't travel with the Rangers to Washington.

The Rangers will play Game 3 of their second round series on Monday. Zuccarello is out indefinitely with a suspected concussion and a recent report from the New York Post suggested that he won't return before the end of New York's current series. Zuccarello has two assists in five playoff contests.
May 4 - 10:09 AM

The New York Post is reporting that Mats Zuccarello will not be available for the second round of the playoffs.

The Post is citing "several sources" for the story. Zuccarello is sidelined indefinitely with an upper-body injury. Coach Alain Vigneault hadn't ruled him completely to play against the Capitals earlier this week.
