It seems Zuccarello is putting pressure on his NA agents to get him out of the AHL
Zucca needs to chill. Relax. He signed a 2 year ELC and he is bound to the terms of the contract.
There is no out-clause in Mats Zuccarello’s contract that would require the Rangers to allow the 24-year-old winger to leave for Europe if he is still a member of the AHL Whale by a certain date, the Norwegian’s representatives and general manager Glen Sather told The Post late last week.
And though Craig Oster, one of the winger’s agents at Newport Sports, told The Post the subject is likely to be raised with management within the next few weeks if Zuccarello remains in Hartford under his $67,500 AHL contract, Sather doesn’t seem to have much interest in obliging.
“Why would we agree to anything like that?” is how Sather phrased it in an email response to the Post’s inquiry whether the club would set the Hobbit free. “There’s no such agreement.”
Oster said the Rangers verbally agreed to consider other options when Zuccarello signed his ELC if it didn't make sense to have Zucca playing in the AHL. It's not in writing. Which party determines it doesn't make sense for him to play in the AHL?
