Mats Zuccarello is skating with Ken Andre Olimb and former NHLer Patrick Thoresen.

When asked about Norway, Pierre McGuire said “I just watched the Norwegians practice and their best player is Mats Zuccarello. He is a nice player but he would have no chance playing for Team Canada. He wouldn’t play on Team Canada two….and that isn’t meant with any disrespect, that is just the reality of where the Norwegian program is right now. “
