Everyone knows that Carl Hagelin and Mats Zuccarello are the best of buddies on the Rangers. This morning as I was scouring the Norwegian websites looking for any additional news on Zuccarello’s injury, I found this quote.

[su_quote cite=”Translated from” url=”″]The scoring was for Zucca. It is incredibly sad that he was injured, but the victory shows the character that is in our team, said Hagelin to NRK after the battle.[/su_quote]

Other Rangers commented on Zuccarello’s injury such as Henrik Lundqvist who said, It’s not good for us to lose Zucca. I hope he comes back after a few extra days break. He is an important player for us.”

J.T. Miller also expressed concern, telling the NYDN “Stuff like that happens unfortunately. You hope he’s OK first of all, but especially a big player, he’s a big part of the team.”

Rangers should announce an update on Mats Zuccarello’s condition before Monday as they have a day off today.
