The Rangers have signed Mika Zibanejad to a five-year extension worth $26.75M ($5.35M AAV).
Rangers hopeful Zibanejad (hand) will play on Thursday.
Zibanejad was a late scratch from last night’s game due to a hand injury, but the Rangers are hopeful that he will be able to play on Thursday. Monitor his status during tomorrow’s morning skate.
Zibanejad (fibula) will return to the Rangers lineup on Tuesday.
Zibanejad missed the last 26 games with a broken fibula, but will be back in the lineup on Tuesday. Zibanejad centred the second line with Pavel Buchnevich and Rick Nash on his wings and enters Tuesday with five goals and 10 assists (15 points) in 19 games.
Zibanejad will miss 6-8 weeks with a broken fibula.
Zibanejad broke his fibula after sliding awkwardly into the boards during the Rangers’ shootout loss to the Panthers on Sunday. Zibanejad has enjoyed a great start to his Rangers career, having collected 15 points (5G / 10A) in 19 games, but that will be put on hold for at least six weeks. Expect Kevin Hayes to take on a bigger role in the Rangers’ offence with Zibanejad out.
The Rangers acquired Mika Zibanejad and a 2018 second-round pick from the Senators for Derick Brassard and a 2018 seventh-round pick.
Zibanejad (illness) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Zibanejad missed Monday’s practice and Tuesday’s morning skate with an illness and is listed as a game-time decision. If Zibanejad can’t play, Nick Paul, who was recalled from Binghamton (AHL) this morning would make his NHL debut.
Zibanejad (head) will not play on Thursday.
Zibanejad suffered a head injury on Tuesday and will be held out of the lineup on Thursday. With Zibanejad and Milan Michalek out, the Senators will be forced to go with six defensemen. Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Shane Prince will play in the top-6.
Zibanejad (upper-body) is doubtful for Thursday.
Zibanejad left Tuesday’s game with an apparent head injury after taking a hit to the head by Flyers’ defenseman Radko Gudas. Zibanejad was reportedly feeling better on Wednesday, but remains doubtful for Thursday’s game.
The Senators signed Mika Zibanejad to a two-year contract worth $5.3M.
Zibanejad, 22, had the best season of his career in 2014-15. The former 6th overall pick tallied his first ever 20-goal season to go along with 26 assists (46 points) in 80 games for the Senators. It was another step in the right direction for Zibanejad, who will be in the Sens’ top-6 for at least the next two seasons.
Zibanejad is a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
Zibanejad was not on the ice for pre game warmups and was confirmed as a healthy scratch, so he is not dealing with an injury. He has one goal and two assists in his last five games and six points (3G / 3A) on the year. Erik Condra is in the lineup for Zibanejad.
Zibanejad (upper-body) will return to the Senators lineup on Friday.

Zibanejad (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday.
Zibanejad must have been injured in Monday's win over the Lightning. He did only play 10:18, which suggest that he left early (averages 14:17). He will be replaced by Matt Kassian.
Zibanejad (illness) will be a game-time decision tonight.
Zibanejad has missed the last two games, but is likely to return tonight vs. the Bruins. Zibanejad has four assists in his last eight games and has a total of 15 points (8G / 7A) in 29 games. If he does play, Matt Kassian will come out of the lineup.
