Gustav Nyquist had a frustrating 2015-16 season.
He racked up 54 points and 27 goals in 2014-15 and was expected to take on a larger role with Detroit, but his production slipped to 43 points and 17 goals this past season. "I have to do better," Nyquist said. "I didn't score as much as I wanted to. That's on me, and I just have to find a way to be better." His name could surface in trade rumors over the summer, but if he stays then he will have to step up his play next year. Apr 27 - 7:53 AM
