Pat Leonard at the Daily News reports that Mats Zuccarello has filed for salary arbitration.
The Rangers can still negotiate with Zuccarello until the arbitration hearing. Teams can't walk away from arbitration decision under $3.5 million.
…you had to figure it was going to get ugly with at least one of the RFAs. Glad it's Zuccarello instead of Stepan. I think ultimately they'll settle on a deal before the hearing.
Derek Stepan is not arbitration eligible.
