Mats Zuccarello Understands He May Not Be In The Future Plans For The New York Rangers

from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,

 In a moment of candidness, Mats Zuccarello said what most others are thinking: It’s likely he will be traded by the Rangers.

The winger recently went on a hockey podcast with Roy Kvatningen, a respected journalist from his native Norway, and spoke about what it’s like to be in the final year of his contract and the likelihood he is going to be dealt before the Feb. 25 deadline. At 31 years old and finishing a four-year, $18 million deal, Zuccarello understands his situation in relation to the Rangers organization, which is committed to its on-the-fly rebuild.

“A trade appears to be most likely,” Zuccarello said, according to Kvatningen’s translation, sent to The Post and which went along with the audio posted online. “I guess am prepared for it. Basically, I’m just waiting for it to happen. It’s a tough spot to be in, if I’m being honest.”
