Apr 7 - 2:30 PM

Jason Zucker (broken clavicle) may be back in the lineup on Thursday.

He is hoping to play one or two games before the playoffs. Zucker has been sidelined since Feb. 9 with a broken clavicle, but he ramped up his work with contact drills on Sunday.
Apr 6 - 12:42 PM

Jason Zucker (collarbone) might return before the end of the regular season.

That would be big for the Wild as Zucker was previously expected to be out until May. If he can return soon, he'll have a change to shake off some of the rust before the playoffs begin. He has 18 goals and 23 points in 48 contests in 2014-15.
Apr 3 - 2:01 PM

Jason Zucker hasn't been cleared for contact yet, but he feels his recovery from a broken clavicle is going very well.

"I feel perfect. I feel great," said Zucker after an optional practice on Friday. "I don't feel I have any restrictions shooting or passing or definitely skating. But it's the docs. They know what’s best and what's right and the right timeline. And whatever they say goes. Nothing else matters." He's hoping to be back in the playoffs.

Jason Zucker is making progress in his recovery from surgery to repair a broken collarbone.

X-rays revealed that the bone is healing well. That said, it will be at least another month before Zucker will be able to suit up in an NHL game. Optimistically, the Wild are hoping Zucker can play in a game before the playoffs. Don't count on that, though.
Mar 14 - 12:09 PM

Jason Zucker still may be a month from returning, but his timetable appears to have been pushed up after he had surgery to repair a broken collarbone.

He was shooting pucks on Tuesday and he has a doctor's appointment scheduled for Wednesday. Zucker was initially slated to be out until about May, but he could be back before then now.
Mar 11 - 12:45 PM

Jason Zucker will miss the next three months with a broken clavicle after a routine hit by Vancouver's Lucas Sbisa on Monday.

Terribly unfortunate for both the Wild and Zucker, as his season is potentially ended a year to the day when his last season was ended with knee surgery. The 23 year old Zucker is second on the team in goals with 18, and was enjoying quite the breakout season.
Feb 10 - 8:27 PM

Jason Zucker (upper body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

Zucker sustained the ailment during Monday's contest. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined for, but the fact that the Wild have already put him on the IR is obviously a bad sign. It's believed that his injury is related to his shoulder or collarbone.
