Rangers Trade Zuccarello to Dallas for Draft Picks

The Rangers traded right wing Mats Zuccarello to Dallas Saturday, receiving two draft picks in return; a 2nd round pick in 2019 and a 3rd round pick in 2020.

Each of those picks could improve, due to the conditions in the deal: the 2019 2nd rounder could become a 1st round pick if the Stars win two rounds in the upcoming playoffs, and the 2020 3rd rounder could become a 1st round pick if Zuccarello signs new contract with Dallas in the off-season.

Zuccarello’s contract is expiring at the end of the current season and he is to become an unrestricted free agent. He can sign with any team July 1st.
