Now that the 2014-15 season in over for the New York Rangers, a lot of information regarding injuries is surfacing on Media Break-Up Day. Here is what we know so far (will be updated throughout the day):

Mats Zuccarello suffered a brain contusion. He is healing and expected to make a full recovery.

He temporarily lost the ability to speak and move his arm, and needed the aid of speech therapy.

Zuccarello expects to be ready for training camp.

Ryan McDonagh was playing through a fracture in his right foot, while Dan Girardi was playing through an MCL sprain, both suffered in Game 4.

McDonagh will remain on crutches and in walking boot for 4 weeks, then will be re-evaluated. Doesn't think surgery is necessary.

Marc Staal played through an ankle hairline fracture suffered in the regular season.

Keith Yandle confirmed he suffered a sprained AC joint (shoulder) in the Pittsburgh series, but got better as playoffs progressed.
