Sport: The Minnesota Wild are not in this year’s NHL playoffs. Therefore, the calendar is free of national team assignments for the Norwegian. He has not played a WC for Norway since in Russia in 2016.

– It has been a long time since he has been able to represent the national team and he wants to now, confirms Zuccarello’s agent Kevin Skabo to nitten.no Friday afternoon.

Zuccarello played and scored in a loss to the Seattle Kraken in the last game of the regular season for the Minnesota Wild. They were never really in the fight for a place in the playoffs.

During Friday’s press conference, according to journalist Michael Russo, he made the following message that Russo has placed on X.

– He said he will play for Norway in the World Cup if he makes the team, writes Russo.

Just that hardly presents any problem.

– The NHL season is over for Mats. For the first time in a very long time, there will be no NHL playoffs on him. He is also injury-free, says Skabo.

This year’s WC in ice hockey will be played on 10-16 May in the Czech Republic.
