Zuccarello suffered the injury blocking a shot on Feb. 24, a day after being acquired by the Stars from the New York Rangers. The 31-year-old was expected to miss about four weeks after undergoing surgery.
Before breaking his arm, Zuccarello had a goal and an assist with a plus-3 rating in over 13 minutes of ice time in his Stars debut.
“Just have to take it one day at a time,” Zuccarello said Saturday via NHL.com’s Mark Stepneski. “Still hurts a little bit and it’s early, like I said, so just take it one day at a time and see how it feels in the next week or so.”
According to Stepneski, Zuccarello will travel with the Stars on a four-game road trip across Western Canada against the Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks.
The Stars are in the middle of a fight for a playoff spot, currently holding the first wild-card spot in the Western Conference ahead of a Saturday night clash against the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Stars are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games.
