Mats Zuccarello is apparently aiming to sign a long-term contract.
The pending unrestricted free agent is looking for a five-year pact, The Athletic's Aaron Portzline reported Thursday.
Zuccarello produced 11 points in 13 playoff games with the Dallas Stars this spring. He broke his arm blocking a shot in his Stars debut after being acquired from the New York Rangers before February's trade deadline, and ultimately posted a goal and two assists in two regular-season contests with his new club.
The crafty forward, who'll turn 32 in September, spent more than eight seasons with the Rangers, collecting 37 points in 46 contests in 2018-19 before the trade.
He's coming off the four-year, $18-million extension he inked with New York in March 2015.
