Penalty-Shot Goal For Wild's Niederreiter

News: Nino Niederreiter registered five shots on goal and scored on a penalty shot Tuesday in a 5-3 loss to Chicago.
Analysis: The goal -- his 14th of the year -- was a thing of beauty, as El Nino totally dominated Antti Raanta one-on-one after being taken down on a breakaway. He's got goals in consecutive games now and three of the last four, but has just three assists on the season and hasn't recorded one since Nov. 20.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores 10th Goal

News: Nino Niederreiter scored his 10th goal of the season in Monday's win over Florida.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter is on a hot streak with six goals in his last eight games. The Wild changed lines again with Niederreiter skating with Charlie Coyle and Erik Haula, but the lineup changes haven't slowed his scoring streak.

Wild's Niederreiter Notches Two Points

News: Nino Niederreiter scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Nino's been red-hot lately, having racked up five goals and a helper in his last four games. Despite averaging just over 14 minutes of ice time per game, his nine goals are easily tops on the Wild.

Niederreiter's Hat Trick Carries Wild

News: Nino Niederreiter scored an even-strength goal, a power-play goal and an empty-net goal for his first NHL hat trick in Thursday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: A sharp game from El Nino, who'd been cool over his last six, collecting just two points. With nine points in 15 games this year, he hasn't developed into a consistent scorer, but he's increased his pace a bit over last year's.

Wild's Niederreiter Pots Shortie

News: Nino Niederreiter was the only man on the scoreboard for the Wild on Tuesday, potting a shorthanded goal on his only shot in a 4-1 loss to the Penguins. He finished the evening minus-2.
Analysis: Nino's been finding his offensive stride lately after a cold start to the year, having collected a point in five of the last six games. The Swiss winger has a legitimate chance to exceed last year's 36 points this season, but he'll need to earn more consistent ice time -- he's averaging less than 14 minutes a game, though he skated a season-high 15:15 on Tuesday.

Wild's Niederreiter: Assist In Back-To-Back Games

News: Nino Niederreiter picked up an assist in Monday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter has assists in back-to-back games to give him three points in seven contests on the season. That production isn't terrible, but those in shallower formats looking for offensive help at forward would be better served looking at other options until Niederreiter heats up a little more.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores in Season Opener

News: Nino Niederreiter had a goal and seven shots on goal in Thursday's win over Colorado.
Analysis: After a breakout season with 14 goals and 22 assists last year, it looks like El Nino is ready to improve this year.

Wild, Niederreiter Agree On Three-Year Pact

News: Nino Niederreiter signed a three-year, $8 million contract with the Wild on Thursday, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: The new deal confirms Nino Niederreiter's availability for training camp while assuring the winger doesn't flee for the KHL. Niederreiter still has a ways to go on the defensive end, but the former top-five draft pick has all the offensive skills in his toolbox, which should eventually allow him to settle in as a frontline scorer for the Wild. For the upcoming season, he'll play somewhere in the team's top-nine. Given the Wild's strong crop of forwards, Niederreiter shouldn't have much difficulty reaching the 40-point mark no matter which line he lands on.

Wild Close To Deal With Niederreiter

News: Nino Niederreiter rejected an offer from a Kontinental Hockey League team in Russia and is close to re-signing with the Wild, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter is a restricted free agent who hasn't reached terms on a new contract with the Wild. However, it sounds like a contract will get completed before training camp begins.

Niederreiter To Join Wild's Top Line For Game 3

News: Nino Niederreiter will join the Wild's top line for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Blackhawks, Tom Callahan of 102.5 The Game reports.
Analysis: With the Wild only scoring three goals on just 48 shot attempts over the first two games of the series, coach Mike Yeo will shake things up a bit to try to generate a little more offense. The appointment to the top line is a big opportunity for Nino Niederreiter, who provided the game-winning goal in the Wild's Game 7 win over the Avalanche in the first round. He'll skate alongside Mikko Koivu and Charlie Coyle.

Wild's Niederreiter Plays Hero In Game 7

News: Nino Niederreiter tallied two goals -- including the game-winner in overtime -- and an assist as the Wild shocked the Avalanche on Wednesday to win the series in seven games.
Analysis: The 21-year-old Nino Niederreiter had what will undoubtedly go down as the most memorable night of his career up to this point, sending a shot over Semyon Varlamov's shoulder on a 2-on-1 break in overtime to claim the series upset. The big night marked his first points in the series since Game 1.

Wild's Niederreiter Produces Two Points

News: Nino Niederreiter snapped a six-game scoreless slump in Thursday's win over St. Louis, tallying a goal, an assist, two PIM and a plus-2 rating.
Analysis: Not only had El Nino been held off the scoresheet in his last six games, but he'd managed a pitiful five shots on goal in that span. Of course, he only took one shot Thursday, and in fact, he hasn't put more than two shots on goal in a game since Feb. 1. The 21-year-old still has great upside, but only part of his ineffectiveness over the last few months can be blamed on inconsistent ice time.

Wild's Niederreiter Returns From Upper Body Injury

News: Nino Niederreiter (upper body) had two hits but no points in 10:31 of ice time in Saturday's win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter missed Thursday's game after he was forced out of Monday's game with an upper-body injury, but luckily it doesn't look serious.

Wild's Niederreiter Out Thursday

News: Nino Niederreiter (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter was able to practice Wednesday, but the team didn't want to risk him worsening the injury by playing Thursday. While he should be ready to play soon, Dany Heatley will enter the lineup in his place for Thursday's game, and perhaps beyond.

Wild's Niederreiter Practices Wednesday

News: Nino Niederreiter (upper body) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter was forced out of Monday's game with the upper-body injury, but his presence at practice on a regular line Wednesday suggests he could be available for Thursday's game. Official word on his status should come down during morning skate.

Wild's Niederreiter Questionable Thursday

News: Nino Niederreiter, who suffered an upper-body injury in Monday's game, is questionable for Thursday's game, as the injury is not thought to be serious, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: We'll know more after Thursday's morning skate. Danny Heatley will likely be active, after sitting on the bench the past two games, if Nino Niederreiter can't play.

Wild's Niederreiter Suffers Injury

News: Nino Niederreiter was not on the Wild bench for the second period of Monday's game, after taking a big hit from the Kings' Jake Muzzin in the first period, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chad Graff reports.
Analysis: An upper-body injury of some sort is the likely diagnosis, given that El Nino took a hard hit to the left shoulder/neck, which caused his head to whip back. He didn't lose consciousness but was slow to get up from the hit, and he didn't log any shifts during the second period.

Wild's Niederreiter Posts Assist

News: Nino Niederreiter had an assist in Tuesday's win at the Islanders.
Analysis: It was his first game back on Long Island since he was traded to the Wild. Nino Niederreiter has stayed hot since the Olympic break, with five points in his last ten games.

Niederreiter Scores OT Winner For Wild

News: Nino Niederreiter scored the OT winner and added an assist against the Predators on Thursday.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter enters the Olympic break with three points in his last two games. He's playing some hard-nosed hockey right now and is a presence in the offensive zone in ways the stats aren't showing. There should plenty more where these goals came from if he's able to keep it up.

Wild's Niederreiter Ends Pointless Streak

News: Nino Niederreiter stopped his six-game pointless streak with a first-period power-play goal in Tuesday's win over the Bolts.
Analysis: The 21-year-old appears to have to hit a wall after a hot start to 2014, as the goal was his first since Jan. 7. There seems to be a bright future ahead for Nino Niederreiter, but he shouldn't be regarded as a must-own player quite yet.

Wild's Niederreiter On Modest Streak

News: Nino Niederreiter collected a pair of assists Thursday against Phoenix, pushing his point streak to four games.
Analysis: One of the helpers came on an empty-netter, but hey, that's alright. El Nino has seven points in his last six games now and has seen more than 17 minutes of action in consecutive contests; he previously hadn't skated more than 17 minutes in a game since way back on Nov. 30.

Niederreiter Carries Wild To Shootout Win

News: Nino Niederreiter scored the Wild's lone regulation goal Tuesday, then tallied the lone shootout goal to deliver a 2-1 win over Los Angeles.
Analysis: The all-Nino Niederreiter offense worked out in this one, but the Wild would surely like to see more diversity on their score sheet than they did Tuesday. The 21-year-old has five points in his last five games, making nice progress in his first season with Minnesota after falling out of favor with the Islanders, who spent the fifth pick of the 2010 draft on the ultra-talented Swiss winger.

Niederreiter Posts Sixth Goal As Wild Edge Avs

News: Nino Niederreiter scored Minnesota's lone goal in regulation Saturday against Colorado. The Wild eventually won in a shootout, 2-1.
Analysis: It's looking as though the Islanders gave up on him too soon. He's not an elite scorer yet, but at only 21, he's got time to develop. If you can hold him for another year or two, he may turn out to be a solid investment.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores Fifth Goal

News: Nino Niederreiter got limited ice time early in Saturday's win over Winnipeg, but responded with his fifth goal of the season in the third period, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It sounds like head coach Mike Yeo's message was made and this won't have any long-term implications.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores Fourth Goal

News: Nino Niederreiter scored his fourth goal of the season in Tuesday's loss at Montreal.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter continues to have a productive enough season with 12 points in 22 games that should keep him in the NHL after he was banished to the minors with Islanders last season.
