Zucker will make his Penguins debut on Tuesday.
Zucker, who was acquired from the Wild on Monday night, will make his debut on the Penguins' top line with Sidney Crosby. Zucker, who has scored 14 goals with 15 assists in 45 games this season, brings a ton of energy and skill to Crosby's wing, a spot where many have posted career years.
The Penguins have acquired Jason Zucker from the Wild for Alex Galchenyuk, Calen Addison and a 2020 first-round pick.
Zucker has scored 14 goals with 15 assists (29 points) in 45 games with the Wild this season. Zucker, who is a one-time 30-goal scorer, will get a huge fantasy boost because he will likely slot in the top-6 with Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin. After this year, Zucker has three years left with a $5.5M cap-hit (per PuckPedia).
