It appears as though Norwegian scoring sensation Mats Zuccarello-Aasen is Broadway bound.

The Toronto Stars' Damian Cox is reporting that the diminutive winger has signed with the New York Rangers as a free agent.

Listed at 5'7", Zuccarello-Aasen starred for Norway at the Vancouver Olympic Games and led the Swedish Elite League in scoring this season with 64 points in 55 games (23 goals, 41 assists) while playing for MODO.

The 23-year old was reportedly heavily pursued by the Toronto Maple Leafs, Detroit Red Wings, Edmonton Oilers and Chicago Blackhawks.  The Maple Leafs offered Zuccarello-Aasen a two-year entry level contract.

The deal will likely not be announced until after the World Hockey Championship due to the International transfer agreement.
