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.
