Zuccarello is a Star

Yesterday we talked on Dallas Stars Nation about trades and I brought up how Mats Zuccarello would be a perfect fit for the Dallas Stars. Now Mats has been traded to the Dallas Stars.

The Stars have received Zuccarello for a 2nd and 3rd conditional draft picks. The Rangers will retain 30% (around $304,839) of Zuccarello’s salary.

The 2nd round pick is in 2019. The 2nd round pick can become a first round pick if Dallas plays 2 rounds of the playoffs and Zuccarello plays in 50% of those games.

The 3rd round pick is in 2020 and becomes a first round pick of Zuccarello resigns with the Stars. 

This is a brilliant move for Dallas, they need Zuccarello’s speed and smarts. Zuccarello is amazing to have on the power play, 3 of his 11 goals this season were scored on the power play.

With this move, the Stars are also placing Martin Hanzal on the Long Time Injured Reserve. It’s a logical move with the health scares he’s had this season.
