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. Mar 30 - 1:32 PM

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

He's now skating and shooting pucks with the other injured Wild players and has looked good doing it. That said, Zucker is not expected back in action until May 7th at the earliest. The Wild would have to advance a few rounds in the playoffs for Zucker to play again this season.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Feb 10 - 5:00 PM

Jason Zucker left Monday's game against Vancouver because of an upper-body injury.

Nino Niederreiter took his place on the second line with Mikko Koivu and Jason Pominville. Zucker has been a pleasant surprise for Minnesota in 2014-15, with 18 goals and 23 points in 48 games. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Feb 10 - 10:03 AM

Jason Zucker tallied his 18th goal of the year on Tuesday.

He has scored in consecutive games for the Wild and cashed in on a breakaway in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Chicago. Zucker entered the 2014-15 season with eight goals and four assists in his previous 47 NHL appearances, but in 46 games this year he has 23 points.
Feb 4 - 1:16 PM

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

Jan 9 - 11:36 AM

Jason Zucker registered a pair of goals and an assist for the Wild in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to San Jose.

Stepping up to play on the top line in place of the absent Zach Parise (personal), Zucker had a fantastic night with eight shots on goal and a plus-3 rating to go along with his three points. Jared Spurgeon also netted his fifth of the season in the losing effort.

JFYI as neither player is major impact entity in fantasy.
