Mats Zuccarello Aasen (24) is back in training after ankle injury he suffered in early December.
VG Nett follows NHL
Swede gathered well with points for Connecticut Whale, before the accident occurred in a game against Hershey Bears.
24-year-old was promised a break of four to six weeks.
It's getting better now.
I have started to train on ice again, says Zuccarello Aasen told VG.
The statement came Monday night, Norwegian time.
Just prior, he had seen the NHL team he wants to return to New York Rangers beat Philadelphia Flyers in what some on the other side of the pond is referred to as the best "Winter Classic" game ever. "
Because he's 5'9 160 pounds and i've never seen him play with or against NHL talent.
He is 5'9 175lbs, not 160lbs.
Either way he is on the smaller side, but he is smart. He can, and will bulk up.
I am not saying he is a blue-chip prospect, but considering the Rangers have Lee Baldwin and many others under contract who are absolutely horrible, I am wondering why they haven't given him a contract as of yet.
