Zucker's contract is for two years. The first year is a two-way contract, and the second year is a one-way deal.
Zucker, 22, was drafted by the Wild in 2010 while at the University of Denver, and made his NHL debut shortly after wrapping up his final college season in 2012. In 2012-13, he scored 50 points in 55 games with the AHL's Houston Aeros, and earned a call-up to the NHL late in the season. His 2013-14 season, split between the AHL Iowa Wild and Minnesota, was cut short by injury.
