Pat Leonard reports on the details of Mats Zuccarello’s now completed four year extension:
The full, done Zuccarello deal: 4 years, $18 million, full no-trade in 1st season, nothing in final 3yrs. Salary $4.5 per yr, as is cap hit

Pretty team-friendly deal Zucc gave the Rangers. Very happy to have him at those terms.
Leonard also reports that James Sheppard will not play tonight as he’s still traveling. Jesper Fast will make his return to the lineup.
Glen Sather said Pavel Buchnevich will be available to the Rangers. When asked if it will be this season, he responded, “We’ll see.” It’s probably unlikely, however. The World Championship team, for whatever reason, has priority over Buchnevich for this season.
