Mika Zibanejad scored a goal and picked up an assist in a 3-2 win over the Edmonton Oilers.

Mika Zibanejad posted a goal with a plus-1 rating on four shots in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win in Vancouver.

Zibanejad added a blocked shot, a minor penalty and a hit over 18:05 of ice time and he had a great night in the faceoff circle with 13 wins in 19 chances. He snapped a four-game scoreless skid, and he entered with just one goal and no assists over his past eight outings. Even with the goal he is only worth a look in the deepest of fantasy formats at this point.
Mar 1 - 1:52 AM

Mika Zibanejad scored his 14th of the season but coach Alain Vigneault was not happy with his line.

That's because the Islanders put Mathew Barzal, Jordan Eberle and Anthony Beauvillier against Zibanejad, Mats Zuccarello and J.T. Miller and they were annihilated by the trio, striking for 12 points. "I got three of my top players there and they were dominated the whole game," Vigneault said. Zibanejad has 25 points in 35 games this season and should be active in deeper pools.
Jan 14 - 8:38 AM

Mika Zibanejad scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights.

Zibanejad took a feed from Michael Grabner before firing off a rocket in behind Marc-Andre Fleury to open the scoring 13:05 into the game. Zibanejad has been cold lately with just two points over his last nine games since returning from his concussion that cost him nine games. The 24-year-old Swedish center has 24 points in 33 games so far this season but the Rangers need more from him moving forward if they want to secure a playoff spot over the second half of the season.
Jan 8 - 12:20 AM

Mika Zibanejad scored a power play goal in a 5-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Pavel Buchnevich teed up Zibanejad for a perfect one-timer with a beautiful cross-ice pass. It's Zibanejad's first goal since Nov 22 and it breaks a run of six games without a point. The Swedish forward has 12 goals and 23 points in 31 games this season. Nick Holden also scored in the loss.
Jan 3 - 10:53 PM

Mika Zibanejad scored a shootout goal in a 1-0 shootout win over the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.

The center saw only one shift in the third before coach Alain Vigneault decided that enough was enough.

He has 11 goals and 22 points in 27 games and has been pointless since his return three games ago.
