New York Rangers fans know Mats Zuccarello is a star on the ice — but that’s not the only sport the forward can play.

Mats Zuccarello is an assist machine wherever he plays. And that’s not limited to the ice —  that includes the soccer field, too. While playing in a charity soccer event in Norway,  Zuccarello, in typical fashion, made a great play to assist on a goal.


The clip that was tweeted out by @aj_ranger noted in its comments that Zuccarello played on none other than the Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg’s squad.

Zuccarello has had a busy off season, as it has been documented on his Instagram and Twitter accounts. From attending Carl Hagelin’s wedding to hiking mountains with his friends to soccer, it looks like Zuccarello will be coming into training camp in great shape and focused on leading the Rangers back into the playoffs.
