Now everything is under control, but we do not know when he’s back.[/su_quote]

Mats has been out of action since Game 5 of the Rangers 1st round series against Pittsburgh. According to Skabo, Zuccarello really got his bell rung from the Ryan McDonagh slapshot.

He is on the mend and in light training, but like all other damages must be very careful and make sure that you take one step at a time, says Skabo.[/su_quote]

Skabo also added that the Rangers have not said anything since it will be doctors that will make the call when he can return.

Mats has been long in peace now, but has begun to be allowed to train small and quiet. He’s on the bike and stuff like that, says Skabo.[/su_quote]

So there you have it. Now, when you see or hear someone else spread rumors on Zuccarello’s health…point them here.
