Nino Niederreiter tallied his fifth goal of the season in Tuesday's 5-3 win against Winnipeg.

He opened the scoring in the match with assists going to linemates Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker. The Wild have been leaning on that trio since Zach Parise was injured, but Thomas Vanek's big night versus the Jets after his promotion could take some pressure off of them.

Nino Niederreiter is dealing with some "lower-body tightness," according to coach Mike Yeo.

Nino Niederreiter (upper-body) did participate in Friday's practice.

Niederreiter left Thursday's game against Colorado in the third period and did not return. The intriguing part about this situation is that the Wild were upset at the Avalanche's medical staff for not going to see Niederreiter in the Wild's locker room. Had he been cleared, the 23-year-old would have returned to the game. The Wild contacted the NHL about the situation, and the league said they are looking into the "unusual delay".

Nino Niederreiter is expected to tested alongside Jason Zucker and Mikko Koivu at training camp.

That could drop Thomas Vanek to the third line with Charlie Coyle to start the season. Niederreiter netted a career high 24 goals last season and he earned 37 points in 80 games. He would certainly benefit from the larger role with talented players, as he averaged just 14:32 of ice time per contest last year.

Nino Niederreiter put home his fourth goal of the postseason, cutting the Wild's deficit to 4-3 with 87 seconds to go. Unfortunately, they'd still fall to the Blackhawks.

Nino Niederreiter feels much more comfortable in the playoffs this year.

"I definitely feel so much better with one playoff under my belt," he said. "I just know how important every game is and if you lose 6-1 [as in Game 4 of the Blues series], you put it behind you as quickly as possible and respond and win 4-1 [in Game 5]. Last year, I always was thinking about the game before and what happened. This year, it definitely feels different and I want to help lead us to something special." Niederreiter contributed three goals and three assists in 16 postseason games a year ago and he posted three goals and one assist in the last four contests of Round 1 during this playoffs.
