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.

Islanders' Niederreiter Tallies Three Assists

News: Nino Niederreiter picked up three assists against the Devils on Sunday.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter, a former fifth overall pick, is on his second team because his NHL career got off to a slow start with the Islanders. He has three goals and nine points this season, so perhaps he is starting to tap into that talent he was known to have when he was drafted.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores Third Goal

News: Nino Niederreiter scored his third goal of the season in Friday's win over Montreal.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter has moved around the Wild's top two lines, but has been an offensive presence no matter who his linemates have been. He has six points in 14 games.

Wild's Niederreiter Posts Assist

News: Nino Niederreiter had an assist in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter has moved to the Wild's top line with Zach Parise and Mikko Koivu. He also drew praise for his work on the boards and battling for the puck. He could be set for a breakout season.

Niederreiter Starting To Blossom In Minnesota

News: Nino Niederreiter's goal Saturday gives him three points in five games with the Wild. That matches the total number of points he scored in 64 games over two seasons with the Islanders.
Analysis: Can you say breath of fresh air? This kid is talented, but wasn't handled properly on Long Island. He's quietly starting to show off the tools that made him a top-five draft pick. Slip him onto your roster and then activate him once he really starts to exploit those skills.

Niederreiter Moves To Top Wild Line

News: Nino Niederreiter will move to Minnesota's first line Thursday against Winnipeg, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter is off to a good start to the season, picking up two points in three games, and being paired with Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise can only help his fantasy value.

Wild's Niederreiter Posts Assist

News: Nino Niederreiter had an assist on a power-play goal and two shots in Thursday's shootout loss to the Kings. He was on the ice for 15:33 and logged 4:03 of power-play ice time.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter is in a good spot to have a breakout season as he's skating on the second line with Charlie Coyle and Dany Heatley and is also getting power-play ice time on the second power play unit.

Wild's Niederreiter On Second Line

News: Nino Niederreiter will begin the season on the second line for the Wild, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter was thought to be a candidate for the fourth line to start the season, but the latest update has him on the second line with Charlie Coyle and Dany Heatley. He had a strong camp and also has earned a spot on the No. 2 power-play unit.

Niederreiter Makes Wild Roster

News: Nino Niederreiter has made Minnesota's Opening Night roster and is expected to begin the season on the fourth line with Zenon Konopka and Mikael Granlund, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter won't have a high-profile role with the Wild initially, but the former No. 5 overall draft pick could move to a top line if he starts the season strong, as the Wild's top lines may be in flux, with several younger players set to play prominent roles.

Wild's Niederreiter Impresses Again

News: Nino Niederreiter had another strong preseason game Wednesday, as he put the puck into the net, but officials missed it and there was no video replay, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Nino Niederreiter will win a spot on the NHL roster, but it's not clear if he'll land a key spot on the second line or be used on the fourth line.
