After nine seasons in the New York Rangers, the Norwegian ice hockey player Mats Zuccarello (31) goes to the Dallas Stars.
Dallas Stars confirms the transition in a press release night to Sunday Norwegian time.
Dallas manager Jim Nill says Zuccarello is one of the best players in the league and says he will improve their team in many ways.
It was TSN journalist Bob McKenzie who first posted a message about the transition on Twitter night to Sunday, and TSN followed up with case, first discussed by VG .
In exchange for Zuccarello, New York Rangers will have two choices in the NHL draft in 2019 and 2020.
The Norwegian has made 37 points in 46 games he has played this season. Throughout his Rangers career, he has accounted for 352 points in a total of 509 games.
Zuccarello had his last match for Rangers last week. According to the Norwegian Ice Hockey Network site nitten.no , the Norwegian can play for Dallas already in Chicago on Sunday, possibly against Las Vegas on Tuesday.
After 1-4 losses against New Jersey, Zuccarello told NTB that he has had very many years in the club. Asked about the ongoing contract negotiations, he said.
– There is not much uncertainty. There are three days left until I most likely won’t play here anymore.
