Report: Mats Zuccarello to return to New York Rangers.

The New York Rangers are reportedly bringing back Norwegian forward Mats Zuccarello.

According to multiple sources, Zuccarello has agreed to terms on a contract with the Rangers. The club will now await his release from his current team in the KHL, the Magnitogorsk Metallurg.

The 5-foot-7, 161-pound wing produced 11 goals, 28 points and a plus-5 rating in 44 games for Metallurg this season. He played 42 games with the Rangers in 2010-11, posting six goals and 23 points, and 10 more games the following season when he compiled two goals and three points.

Zuccarello, born in Oslo, Norway, was originally signed to a two-year, entry-level contract by the Rangers in May, 2010. He's also spent 73 games with the Rangers' American Hockey League affiliate, the Connecticut Whale, posting 25 goals, 65 points and a plus-7 rating.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
