Jason Zucker has finally recovered from last season's leg surgery.
There were complications after a minor procedure Zucker had to his right knee in January which led to another surgery to repair a tendon in his right quadriceps that kept him from returning to the ice for the balance of the season. The good news is that the speedy Zucker is fully recovered and has been skating with his teammates for a few weeks. He will attempt to grab a third or fourth line job with the Wild this season but he has the potential to move up if everything breaks his way. Sep 6 - 11:04 AM
