Jason Zucker

Last season’s runner-up for the NHL’s version of the Cy Young award to the Florida Panthers’ Brandon Pirri, whose 24 points included 22 goals, Zucker played only 51 games but scored 21 goals. That’s over a 30-goal pace for the diminutive, yet rambunctious, left winger.

Zucker, 23, may be only 5-foot-11, 188 pounds, but plays an aggressive game that sees him drive hard to the net and often lay far-bigger players on their rears. Unfortnuately for the Wild, this style may lend to him missing time fairly consistently due to injury. When healthy, there’s no reason Zucker shouldn’t be making an impact on both the ice and in your fantasy lineup.
