According to Larry Brooks, in the NY Post, since Mats Zuccarello, Oscar Lindberg and Jesper Fasth are on the Rangers reserve list, they can play for the team following the end of their respective seasons in Europe.
Zuccarello would need to sign a contract but would not have to clear waivers to play for the Rangers.
Lindberg and Fasth signed contracts last spring.
In the KHL this season, Zuccarello has nine goals and 15 assists in 35 games.
Zuccarello signed a two-year deal in the KHL but the Rangers retained his contractual rights.
