Mika Zibanejad (broken fibula) skated on his own Friday morning.

Jan 7 - 9:12 AM

Mika Zibanejad is looking for a mid-late January return from his broken fibula.

Zibanejad broke his fibula on November 20 after starting the season off strong with 15 points in 18 games and the Rangers really miss his play at center. He is no longer in a walking boot or using crutches and that's a major step but it should still take some time before he is wheeling on the ice. He is a definite keeper in a lot of pools and should be the Rangers top pivot for a long time.
