I was just over at nhl.com and looked him up..

He has 1 goal and 3 assists...

So his 2 penalty goals doesn't count in the stats? Shouldn't he have like 3+3 ?
if they did then guys like PaP, Korp, and Christensen would have 40 goals a season

Its the same thing as a penalty shootout in soccer. In the World Cup or Champions League, goals scored in a penalty shootout doesnt count towards the top scorers title in the tournament. Only goals scored in active play counts towards the stats. Both in soccer and hockey.

IMHO As soon as he was called up he immediately upped the skill / creativity on the team. Would be very difficult to send him down for that reason alone.

Guys have their sticks on the ice and are looking for the passes from anywhere.

The biggest surprise to me so far is how well Zuccarello back-checks and gets back on defense.

There is a separate stat that tracks shootout attempts/saves/goals, but these aren't added to a player's regular season totals, as stated above.
except by players agent when contract negotiations commence

Hm if 36 was his number with Modo I think I'll go ahead and assume he'll keep it. Debating on a Zucca jersey

He uses number 36 (did in both Frisk and Modo, and now in the Rangers). On the national team he uses number 48.

I dont see him changing it unless management wants him to.

He's helping the team a lot these days, but Torts says he's not comfortable with playing Zuccarello against some heavy lines, and he has to keep changing his own lines during games because of this. So they don't know yet how things will settle down. I hope the lack of size will not be a problem for Zuccarello in the future, I'm sure he remains in the lineup as long as he plays like he does now.

Yeah, this worries me a bit too.

Is he really that bad defensively though? Can't say I've noticed him being particularly bad in that regard since he got called up.

He said on NHL Live that Tortorella was "nicer than he thought". He had watched Youtube videos before he met him.

Zuccarello's girlfriend makes good tacos. Don LaGreca was in Dallas with the Rangers. He heard that Zucca's girl is a good cook. McDonagh told the media the story about eating the tacos. Maybe they were roommates in Hartford.

Thats from white plains, new york. when mcdonagh was called up. apparently the first thing he did was to visit Zucca. the pic is from a home intervju by the norwegian newspaper VG
http://www.vg.no/sport/ishockey/arti...artid=10028858

Most of Whales players live in the same apartment building, so i guess thats how they got to be friends.
