Norwegian forward Mats Zuccarello missed Norway's qualification round playoff game against Russia on Tuesday with a hand injury. Following an MRI, it's been revealed the Zuccarello broke his hand in Sochi while representing his country:
Should Zuccarello miss any length of time as a result of his broken hand, it'll be a significant loss for the Rangers, who are only four points clear of a playoff spot. The Norwegian forward is a dominant possession player, and has logged the third-most minutes among all Rangers forwards. He's also the Manhattan-based team's leading scorer.
