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

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.

Mar 6 - 1:13 PM

Gustav Nyquist will serve the last game of his suspension on Friday night.

He was banned for six games for a high-sticking incident on Minnesota's Jared Spurgeon. Detroit called up Mitch Callahan Wednesday to have 12 forwards after the team traded Steve Ott and Thomas Vanek prior to the deadline.
Mar 2 - 9:55 AM

Gustav Nyquist has received a six-game suspension for high-sticking Minnesota's Jared Spurgeon.

His lack of suspension history and the fact that Spurgeon was OK probably played factors in the decision. However, this is the low end of what most were expecting given how vicious the incident looked. Nyquist will be eligible to return March 4 against Edmonton.
