Niederreiter Seals Win For Wild With Empty-Netter

News: Nino Niederreiter scored with the net empty in Sunday's series-clinching win over the Blues.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter wreaked havoc on the Blues with three goals and an assist in the opening round. Four different Wild players were involved on the scoring players that led to Niederreiter points in the series, showing that he can effectively adjust to different line combinations. Niederreiter is coming up huge when it matters most, making him a fine choice in fantasy playoff formats.

Wild's Niederreiter Records PP Assist

News: Nino Niederreiter collected a power-play assist in Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter found Jared Spurgeon to get the Wild on the board after the Blues raced to a 3-0 first-period lead, but that would be the extent of the Wild offense in a game they were thoroughly whipped. Through four games in the series, Niederreiter has performed about as well as you expect from a third-line forward, tallying a goal, an assist and eight shot attempts over four games.

Wild's Niederreiter To Play Saturday

News: Nino Niederreiter (undisclosed) will play Saturday against the Blues.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter was one of three players that missed Thursday's game against the Predators due to a "nagging" injury, but he'll get in one final tune-up Saturday before the postseason commences. The young winger enters the regular-season finale with 24 goals and 13 assists over his 79 games this season.

Wild's Niederreiter To Be Held Out

News: Nino Niederreiter will be held out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Predators due to an undisclosed "nagging" injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter was able to play through a bruised foot in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks, but with the Wild having now secured a playoff berth, the winger will be able to pick up some rest. He'll be rested along with Thomas Vanek and Zach Parise on Thursday, but all three players are expected to draw back in the lineup for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Blues. Aside from a two-goal game March 28 against the Kings, Niederreiter has been a blank slate in both of the scoring categories the last 10 contests, which would have made him a shaky fantasy option even if he suited up Thursday.

Wild's Niederreiter Set To Play Tuesday

News: Nino Niederreiter has a bruised foot, but is slated to play Tuesday against Chicago, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Barring a setback in warmups, Nino Niederreiter -- who has 24 goals and 37 points in 78 games to date -- will remain in the Wild lineup despite being hit on the foot by a Matt Dumba slap shot during Monday's game against the Jets.

Wild's Niederreiter Hurts Foot

News: Nino Niederreiter left Monday's loss to the Jets due to a foot injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: He took a hard shot to his foot and was unable to return to the game. Nino's timeline is currently unclear, but look for updates soon, as the Wild will need him come playoff time.

Wild's Niederreiter Scores Twice In Win

News: Nino Niederreiter potted a pair of goals and was a plus-3 in Saturday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter now has 24 goals on the season -- 30th most in the NHL. While he's only got 37 points in 75 games, the 22-year-old had turned into a lethal goal-scorer and is producing nicely on a line with Mikko Koivu.

Wild's Niederreiter Nets GWG Vs. Blues

News: Nino Niederreiter tallied his fifth game-winning goal of the season Saturday against the Blues.
Analysis: Another clutch performance from Nino Niederreiter, who has recorded a point in four of his last five games. He's been producing steadily this season, managing 22 goals and 34 points in 68 games. Skating on the second line with Mikko Koivu, the 22-year-old's 30-goal potential makes him a reliable fantasy option in most formats.

Wild's Niederreiter Will Play Friday

News: Nino Niederreiter (lower body) was on the ice for pregame warmups and will play Friday against the Hurricanes, the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chad Graff reports.
Analysis: After missing one game with a lower-body injury, Nino Niederreiter will return to action Friday against Carolina. He's registered 21 goals and nine assists in 63 games with Minnesota this season.

Wild's Niederreiter (Lower Body) Skates Friday

News: Nino Niederreiter (lower body) participated in Friday's optional morning skate, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: A late scratch for Thursday's game against the Capitals, Nino Niederreiter seemingly has some chance to return for Friday's matchup with the Hurricanes. He's considered day-to-day.

Wild's Niederreiter (Lower Body) A Late Scratch

News: Nino Niederreiter was a late scratch from Thursday's game against the Capitals because of a lower body injury, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter reportedly took the ice for warmups but didn't complete the skate. He may have injured himself right before the game, or it may be that he was already hampered by the issue. Either way, he's considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's game against the Hurricanes.

Niederreiter Pots Two As Wild Win

News: Nino Niederreiter scored his 20th and 21st goals -- the latter into an empty net -- in Thursday's win over the Predators.
Analysis: He's now cleared the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career, and Nino has a good shot at surpassing last year's 36 points, though he's not on pace to do a whole lot more than that. While he does have five goals in his last six games, a little balance in the form of assists certainly wouldn't hurt. He's still stuck on nine for the year.

Wild's Niederreiter Pots Two In Loss

News: Nino Niederreiter scored both of Minnesota's goals in a 3-2 loss to the Canucks on Monday.
Analysis: The 22-year-old Swiss product extended his career high in goals to 18 in this one. With just nine assists, however, he would be a prime candidate as a pitcher for baseball's Cy Young Award (18-9), as two-thirds of his total points have been goals. Nonetheless, he's been a nice piece of depth scoring on fantasy rosters this year and could help those in deeper formats down the stretch -- especially if he can earn an extended stay in the Wild's top six forward corps.

Wild's Niederreiter Bags Goal In Monday's Win

News: Nino Niederreiter netted his 16th goal of the season in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.
Analysis: Nino Niederreiter has points in three of his last four games and ranks third on the team in goals this year. The recent uptick in scoring is promising after Niederreiter slumped through most of January, but he'll need to maintain this level of productivity if he hopes to earn universal fantasy appeal.

Wild's Niederreiter Ends Scoring Slump

News: Nino Niederreiter scored his 15th goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Edmonton.
Analysis: It was his first goal in 17 games. After a hot start to the season, Nino Niederreiter had registered just four assists in a 17-game stretch. Hopefully this outing ends his slump.

Points Not Coming In For Wild's Niederreiter

News: Nino Niederreiter picked up a power-play assist and attempted three shots in Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The 22-year-old hasn't tallied a goal since Dec. 16, and has two points in his 10 games since then. Nino Niederreiter currently finds himself outside of a top-six role, and though he still ranks tied for second on the team in goals, his fantasy value is clearly on the downswing at the moment.

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.
