Nov 6 - 10:35 PM

Nov 6 - 3:19 PM

Detroit is optimistic that Gustav Nyquist's lower-body injury is not a long-term issue.

"I would say right now it's day-to-day," coach Jeff Blashill said. "I don't think it's a long-term thing but he might not be available for (Monday in Vancouver)." Nyquist couldn't put any weight on his leg following a knee-on-knee collision with Edmonton defender Eric Gryba on Sunday.
Nov 6 - 10:12 AM

Nov 5 - 5:30 PM

Gustav Nyquist found the back of the net in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Arizona.

Gustav Nyquist scored a goal in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Florida Panthers.

Nyquist provided the Red Wings with two huge moments in this one. His goal at the 10:46 mark of the second period tied the game at two, while his shootout goal proved to be the game-winner.

Gustav Nyquist earned an assist in Sunday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver.

Nyquist's second helper of the season came on a goal by Anthony Mantha late in the the first period. He has four points in nine games this season, but he has been held off the scoresheet in seven outings.
Oct 23 - 10:11 AM

Gustav Nyquist had two goals and an assist in Friday's 6-3 win over the Vegas Golden Knights.

The Red Wings mixed up their lines during the game, and the combination of Nyquist, Henrik Zetterberg and Anthony Mantha dominated the game. Nyquist's goals gave Detroit 1-0 and 5-3 leads. This was a welcomed offensive outburst from Nyquist, as the three points were his first three of the season. If this line keeps performing this way, they'll bring plenty of fantasy value to the table.
Oct 14 - 10:28 AM

Gustav Nyquist found the back of the net in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The 28-year-old had 28 and 27-goal seasons in 2013-14 and 2014-15, but he hasn't scored more than 17 since then. The Red Wings are a long shot to make the playoffs, but if they want to surprise the hockey world this year, they'll need to get a strong contribution from a player like Nyquist. Don't expect him to have much fantasy value in standard leagues.
Sep 29 - 10:51 PM

Gustav Nyquist scored two goals and two assists in Detroit's 6-5 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Nyquist was very productive tonight, but the Red Wings need him to bounce back after a couple of disappointing seasons. Last year, he netted just 12 goals and 48 points in 76 games. Don't expect him to carry any value in standard fantasy leagues.
Sep 20 - 10:12 PM

Gustav Nyquist has a no-trade clause that kicks in July 1.

He will probably be protected by Detroit at the expansion draft, but that doesn't mean that he won't be involved in trade talks. Detroit would like to make upgrades on the back end and Nyquist could be used as bait. He had trouble producing for most of the year before he heated up offensively down the stretch.
Jun 7 - 9:13 AM

Gustav Nyquist has been red hot down the stretch.

He has found the back of the net in each of his last two matches and he has racked up 16 points in the past 17 contests. Nyquist has registered 45 points in 73 games this season.
