Nino Niederreiter (upper body) returned to action on Saturday.

Niederreiter suffered the upper body injury on Monday against the Kings and missed only one game before his return Saturday. He had a couple of hits but otherwise was held off the scoresheet in a 4-0 win over Pittsburgh. He has had a good first season with the Wild as he has 13 goals and 34 points in 77 games with a plus-10 rating. Look for more of the same next season for the native of Switzerland.

Nino Niederreiter (upper body) skated Thursday morning, but he won't play in Chicago.

"It'd be silly on our part to rush him back. This time of year, let's make sure we give him a chance to fully heal and get ready for the next one," coach Mike Yeo said. "We don't want him to come back for one period and then lose him for three weeks here. Let's just make sure we approach this with a bit of caution toward making sure we have him back and healthy for good." Niederreiter got his bell rung on a hit against Los Angeles on Monday, but he hasn't experienced any ill effects since then. Still, the Wild are being cautious with his recovery.

Nino Niederreiter left Monday's 3-2 victory over Los Angeles with an upper-body injury.

Nino Niederreiter scored for the Wild in their 5-2 loss to the Canucks on Wednesday night.

Niederreiter's goal, his 13th of the season, snapped a six-game drought. Only 21, Niederreiter, who has 34 points, has predictably been inconsistent this season, but he does offer a lot of promise. Charlie Coyle potted the other goal for Minnesota. Mikko Koivu, Jared Spurgeon, Erik Haula and Ryan Suter had the assists.

Nino Niederreiter has been moved to a line with Matt Cooke and Kyle Brodziak.

He had been playing with Charlie Coyle and Danny Heatley. Minnesota coach Mike Yoe is trying to coax out some scoring from his bottom two lines. Niederreiter has had his moments this season but he is still too inconsistent to be counted on for fantasy purposes.

Nino Niederreiter is expected to stay on a line with Matt Moulson and Mikko Koivu for Saturday's game against Columbus.

The trio finished Minnesota's 2-1 win over the Rangers together. Niederreiter was promoted after he tallied his 12th goal of the season to open the scoring.
Mar 15 - 3:12 PM

With the addition of Matt Moulson and the return to health of Zach Parise and Miko Koivu, Nino Niederreiter is not likely to get much, if any, power-play ice time.

The Wild will use some combination of Parise, Koivu, Moulson, Dany Heatley, Charlie Coyle and Mikael Granlund on the first two units with Ryan Suter and Jason Pominville on the points of the first team and Jared Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin on the points of the second unit. That leaves Niederreiter on the bench. Keep that in mind when assessing this fantasy value.

Switzerland couldn't find the back of the net against Sweden on Friday.

The Swiss are great defensively, but they don't have much in the way of offensive options. Nino Niederreiter is one of their few exceptions, but the 21-year-old was denied on two shots on goal. He logged 18:33 minutes, which was more than any other Swiss forward.
