Zibanejad, who has missed the first three days of training camp, is expected to be ready for the beginning of the season according to Rangers coach David Quinn. "I think that he's day to day and from all indications, he should be ready for opening night," Quinn said. "We're expecting him back soon. I'd be a lot more worried if we were three or four days away."
He exploded last season posting a career-high 41 goals and 75 points in only 57 games. Zibanejad should have another monster fantasy season while playing on a potent Rangers team.
