Frans Nielsen has excelled in the shootout over his career.
Nielsen has the most career shootout goals in the NHL with 47 over his 94 attempts. This season specifically he's three-for-four in the skills competition. Those numbers might not get a lot of attention most of the time, but it's a meaningful part of his upside to Detroit. "It’s an asset. It gives you points, and they’re big points," Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. "Here, and the course of his career, I’m sure he’s accumulated a lot of points for us and the (New York) Islanders. Last year our fortunes changed a lot in shootouts and a large part of it was because of Frans." Unfortunately, he hasn't been as desirable offensively outside of the shootout as he has nine goals and 14 points in 37 contests this season. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 05:04:00 AM
