Jason Zucker netted a goal for the Wild in their 3-1 win over the Coyotes on Saturday night.
Zucker could very well develop into a 30-goal scorer, but it’s hard to believe it’s this season unless he picks up his shooting rate. He has 16 goals on just 99 shots. Zucker has 21 points this season. Charlie Coyle and Zach Parise (empty net) got the other goals in the win. Marco Scandella had a plus-three rating. Jan 17 - 11:48 PM

Jason Zucker has been a responsible two-way player for the Wild.

He's played mostly on the fourth line, but he was recently promoted to a line with Mikko Koivu. Zucker isn't seeing any power-play time even though he leads the team with five goals and he's contributed seven points in 10 games.

Jason Zucker scored two goals in Saturday's win against Tampa Bay and now leads the Wild in goals so far this season.

It's still early but Zucker has four goals and has done his damage while playing mostly on the fourth line. The Wild have several talented forward on their team so it's unlikely Zucker will continue to lead them in any offensive categories, but Zucker's production in a welcomed surprise for the Wild.

Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo says the team needs more from forward Jason Zucker.

Zucker sent a pass into teammate Matt Dumba's skates that led to Corey Perry's game winning goal on Friday. "With his speed, it’s just kind of a minor thing and these are learning moments," Yeo said. "If he can have a bit of a shoulder check, he can realize that he has a little bit more time and space, that he’s part of the attack as opposed to just moving it to somebody. It’s just trying to get his feet going and with his speed, that could be such a factor for us. We saw it on his goal. As much as anything else, I wanted to make sure he knows that one mistake, that’s part of the game, that’s part of the process for a young player and he’s still developing and you’ve got to move on from that and learn from it."

Jason Zucker scored his second goal of the season on Friday night, beating Anaheim's Frederik Andersen.

Albeit it was a softy. Andersen probably should've had it as he wasn't settled yet when Zucker snapped one from the left dot off a rush. Then again, perhaps Zucker deserves credit for shooting before he got set. Either way, a goal is a goal and this one counts just the same.
