The goal gives Nyquist 20 on the year, making it the first time since 2014-15 that he has reached that total. The 28-year-old Swede has seen his production decline since that season and a change of scenery might do him some good in the off-season. He has another year remaining on his contract at a $4.75 million cap hit and could be a trade target during the off-season. Tyler Bertuzzi scored his fourth goal of the season in the loss.

Gustav Nyquist scored a goal in a 4-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

After two-straight sub-20 goals seasons, Nyquist is just one away from his 20th this season. With the Red Wings looking like they will be heading towards a rebuild, they might be looking to move on from the 28-year-old forward in the off-season. That is something most fantasy general managers would appreciate considering it might allow Nyquist to get back to his 50+point potential he flashed between 2013-2015. The Swedish forward has 34 points in 71 games this season.
