Norway's lone NHL player, New York Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello, will not play in the team's qualification playoff game Tuesday against Russia (7:30 a.m., NBCSN, CBC) due to a hand injury.
Zuccarello has no points in three games, but is second on the team with 10 shots on goal. He also leads Norway's forwards with an average ice time of 22:25 per game.
The winner of the game between fifth-seeded Russia and No. 12 Norway plays Finland on Wednesday in the quarterfinals.
