Even after Nino Niederreiter returned from a broken fibula, he wasn't 100%.
"There was a lot of games he had played after his injury and he said it was still bothering him, but he played through it," Wild coach Bruce Boudreau revealed. "Only, I thought [Game 4] might have been the first time in a long time you could see him skate and the power he has when he’s working. You break your legs, it’s not easy coming back from it. And everybody wants to come back quick. These guys are not used to getting hurt, so they do and they’re just getting better now." After recording 57 points in 2016-17, Niederreiter finished the regular season with 18 goals and 32 points in 63 games. He had no points and a minus-four rating in the 2018 playoffs.

Nino Niederreiter is looking for his first point of Minnesota's first-round series versus Winnipeg.

Nino Niederreiter scored a goal in a 4-1 win over Nashville on Saturday.

Niederreiter extended his point streak to four games. He has 18 goals and 30 points in 55 contests this season. He'll finish well below his 2016-17 mark of 57 points, but perhaps he'll bounce back in 2018-19 if he can stay healthy. At least he seems to be finishing the campaign on a positive note.

Nino Niederreiter has generated seven points in his last 10 games.

Niederreiter has heated up this month after an unproductive February, which saw him record just two goals and one assist in 13 matches. "I thought he skated better the last couple games," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He's a streaky scorer, so he needs to get a couple in one game and then I think he'll be good to go." Niederreiter has also dealt with injury issues, but it's been a disappointing season for him. He has tallied 29 points in 54 appearances after he had 25 goals and 57 points in 82 contests in 2016-17.

Nino Niederreiter scored his 17th goal of the year in a 3-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.

The 25-year-old forward is now up to seven power play goals, which is one shy of his career high set last season. His numbers have dipped from 2016-17 but he has picked up a respectable 28 points in 53 games this season while battling ankle issues.

Nino Niederreiter picked up an assist on Sunday for his 200th career point.

Niederreiter's 100th career helper came on Zach Parise's game-winning goal against Detroit. He has dealt with plenty of injury issues this season, but isn't using them as an excuse for his recent struggles offensively. Niederreiter only has two goals and three assists in his last 16 outings.
