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.
