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.

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.

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.
Apr 4 - 10:13 AM

Gustav Nyquist registered an assist in Friday's 2-1 OT loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mar 25 - 10:19 AM

Gustav Nyquist said he's fine to play on Friday.

That's not surprising, but we're making note of it because Nyquist skipped Thursday's practice for maintenance reasons. He has 10 goals and 37 points in 66 games this season.
Mar 24 - 11:13 AM

Gustav Nyquist had the day off on Thursday, but is still projected to play on Friday against Tampa Bay.

Mar 23 - 1:43 PM

Gustav Nyquist snapped his five-game goal drought during Saturday's 5-1 win over the Avalanche.

Mar 18 - 4:54 PM

Gustav Nyquist has been red hot lately with six points in his last four games.

Unfortunately it's been a bright spot in what is likely going to be seen as an underwhelming season for Nyquist as he has nine goals and 35 points in 61 contests. Nyquist had 28 goals in 2013-14 and 27 markers in 2014-15, but his shooting percentage has faded heavily as his career has progressed. His 2016-17 shooting percentage is 6.7% against his career average of 12%. His 2013-14 mark of 18.3% was unsustainable so it's not surprising to see him dip, but his current 6.7% could be seen as a deviation as well from the other end of the spectrum once his career as a whole is played out.
Mar 13 - 10:02 AM

Gustav Nyquist scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

He hadn't found the back of the net in any of his last 12 games. The Red Wings were trailing 3-0 in the second period when Nyquist finally got his team on the board with less than a minute remaining in the middle frame. The Wings forward added another goal in the third period to cut the lead to 3-2, but that's as close as Detroit would come to tying the game. Nyquist has nine goals and 31 points in 58 games this season.
Mar 7 - 11:07 PM

Gustav Nyquist (illness) will be in the lineup on Tuesday night.
