Zuccarello, a restricted free agent, was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing July 25.

Zuccarello, who was not drafted, turns 27 on Sept. 1. He played for Norway at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

Zuccarello was named the recipient of the 2013-14 Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award, given by the Rangers. The award, which is voted on by fans, is for the player who "goes above and beyond the call of duty."

The Rangers have arbitration hearings scheduled with forwards Chris Kreider on July 23 and Derick Brassard on July 28.

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
