Zuccarello To Miss 1-2 Weeks of Games; Staal Misses Practice With Back Spasms

The New York Rangers announced today that Mats Zuccarello's fractured hand will keep him out 3-4 weeks. However, because the Rangers don't play again until February 27th, he'll only miss 1-2 weeks worth of games.

…nothing really surprising here. We all pretty much assumed this timeline for Zuccarello.

…no word on any recalls at this time. The Wolfpack have two games this weekend, so maybe we'll see Miller recalled on Monday.

Meanwhile, Marc Staal missed today's practice due to back spasms. Jim Cerny of nyrangers.com says the injury is "no cause for concern."

…see, players can get hurt even if they don't play in the Olympics.
