Mats Zuccarello has been one of the most popular New York Ranger players since making his debut in 2010 and he’s coming to iPlay America in Freehold on Saturday, February 9 for a Meet & Greet which will be hosted by yours truly.

A native of Oslo, Norway Zuccarello has been a regular in the lineup for the past 7 seasons and something is bound to happen when the 5’7, 179lb right wing hits the ice. Known for his high-octane skating and fierce determination the undrafted free agent is loved by Ranger fans who greet him with a chorus of “Zooooook” when he scores a goal which he has done 110 times time since putting on the red, white and blue sweater.  Zuccarello is one of only eight players to have led the team in scoring four times.

Now fans will get a chance to meet #36 up close and personal during a Meet & Greet at iPlay’s Event Center on Saturday, February 9.  There are various packages available that will allow ticket holders into a question & answer session with Zuccarello and to get an autograph and photo.  I’ll be doing some hockey trivia and more during the event.  Doors open at 2:30 and it should be a great day for those who love the Blueshirts.
