Welcome Jason Zucker!

Last night, the Wild lost to the Rangers 3-2, and are solidifying the fact they could end up with the #2 pick in June's entry draft. But on a very bright note, prior to Tuesday's game, the team announced that they have signed Jason Zucker (My #5 prospect in the Wild system) to an entry level contract. He will be in uniform Thursday night, wearing #16, as the Wild take on the Florida Panthers.

I like this move. Yes, Zucker does lose a year off his three year deal by playing the remaining 6 games, but it will give him some valuable experience. He is coming off a season in which he posted a line of 22-24-46 in 38 games played for the Denver Pioneers this season.

For me, Zucker is a very welcomed addition to this team for the final 6 games (Honestly, watching Warren Peters, Jed Ortmeyer, and Erik Christensen has gotten very old). It will be interesting to see what Zucker can bring to the table in a short time, and who knows? He could make an impression good enough to make him a favorite for a roster spot next year. We will just have to wait and see. But for now, welcome to the Team of 18,001 Jason Zucker!
