Preds' Nystrom Scores 15th Goal During Loss Friday

News: Eric Nystrom scored his 15th goal of the season during Friday's 7-3 loss to the Stars.
Analysis: After being held pointless over a five-game stretch, Eric Nystrom now has three points in his last two games. He's now posted two 20-point seasons in his last three and is also just one goal shy of his career-best with eight games to go.

Eric Nystrom

Nice Night For Preds' Nystrom

News: Eric Nystrom snapped a five-game scoreless slump in Thursday's 6-1 win over Buffalo, scoring a goal and adding an assist.
Analysis: The night represents something of a milestone for Eric Nystrom, as this is the depth-liner's second time reaching 20 points in a season. Though he provides some fantasy value with 144 hits and 60 PIM, that meager point total (though at least he's got 14 goals in there) and his minus-23 rating are major liabilities.

Preds' Nystrom Hits Olympic Break In Scoring Slump

News: Eric Nystrom has just a single assist in six games at the Olympic break.
Analysis: Without a doubt, the highlight of Eric Nystrom's season thus far came Jan. 24 against Calgary, as he scored four goals that night against his former team. However, it's been all downhill since then for Nystrom, despite playing on the Preds' top line alongside Mike Fisher and Patric Hornqvist. His ice time has risen to 18-19 minutes per night compared to his season average of 14:49; however he's not doing much to earn those extra minutes. Once NHL play resumes later this month, don't be surprised if coach Barry Trotz decides to make a change and bump Nystrom down to a checking line role. Monitor carefully and adjust your fantasy lineups accordingly.

Predators' Nystrom Scores Four Times In Loss

News: Eric Nystrom scored all four Predators goals during Friday's 5-4 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: It was a career night for the 30-year-old wing, both for goals and points in a game. He opened up the game's scoring just 1:51 into the first period, lit the lamp twice in the second and then put what should have been a finishing touch in the third. Though he is not known for his scoring touch, you still would have thought he would have been given an opportunity during the shootout, but he didn't. Eric Nystrom now has 11 goals and four assists through 50 games this season.

Nystrom Scoring Little For Preds

News: Eric Nystrom extended his current pointless drought to eight games Monday against the Red Wings.  He now has just eight points and a minus-9 rating in 37 games so far this season.
Analysis: Much more was expected of Eric Nystrom after he was signed as a free agent during the offseason, however he has not lived up to expectations.  After skating more than 20 minutes per night in a scoring-line capacity just a few weeks ago, he is now seeing less than 10 minutes a game playing on the Preds' fourth line alongside Paul Gaustad and Matt Hendricks. Luckily, Nystrom plays a physical game, which means he will produce decent secondary stats such as hits (he's leading the team with 88) and PIM (third with 24).  However, as he's never scored more than 21 points in a single season, don't expect much from him in terms of goals and assists.

Preds' Nystrom Bumped To Top Line

News: Eric Nystrom, who was recently bumped up to the Preds' first line with Mike Fisher and Viktor Stalberg, skated 20:10 during Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Rangers. He finished the game with no points, but had four shots on goal and seven hits.
Analysis: It's no surprise to see Eric Nystrom more engaged as his ice time has increased. Just two games ago, he skated just 9:59 against the Hurricanes, but with Patric Hornqvist and Craig Smith both day-to-day with various injuries, Nystrom has benefited from a lineup shuffle courtesy of coach Barry Trotz. We don't think the move will boost Nystrom's scoring totals that significantly, but you should see an uptick in his peripheral stats as a result of the increased ice time.

Preds' Nystrom Will Not Play Thursday

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) will not play Thursday against the Maple Leafs, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom was able to practice Wednesday, but he evidently needs a bit more time to get his legs back under him before returning to game action. He suffered the injury last Friday.

Preds' Nystrom Practices

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) practiced with the team Wednesday, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom left Friday's game against the Penguins with the upper body injury, and wasn't in the lineup Saturday or Tuesday. His presence at practice is a good sign moving forward, so keep an eye on Thursday's morning skate for an update on his status.

Preds' Nystrom Out Tuesday

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) skated Tuesday morning, but will not suit up for the night's game in Detroit, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom is believed to be dealing with an ear or head injury after he was struck in that area with a punch last week. He'll miss his second straight game with the injury.

Preds' Nystrom To Sit Saturday

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) will sit out Saturday's game vs. the Blackhawks, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Unsurprisingly, Eric Nystrom will find himself in the press box after sustaining an injury while fighting with the Penguins' Tanner Glass on Friday night. The Predators haven't passed along further word on the severity of the injury or how long it may keep him out of action.

Predators' Nystrom Leaves With Injury

News: Eric Nystrom left Friday's game against the Penguins with an upper-body injury and will not return, Josh Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom left the game after sustaining an upper-body injury and had totaled 8:24 of ice time in the game. He should be considered day-to-day with the injury until more information is provided.

Nystrom Helps Preds In Win Over Jets

News: Eric Nystrom scored an unassisted shorthanded goal in the first period of Sunday's 3-1 win over Winnipeg. It was just his third point of the season.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom is currently seeing roughly 15 minutes of ice time per game for the Preds in a checking-line role, so don't expect much out of him offensively. His career high of 21 points came back in 2011-12 with Dallas; at his current pace, there's a chance he could eclipse that mark, but not by much.

Preds' Nystrom Has Well-Rounded Opener

News: Eric Nystrom picked up an assist, 10 PIMs, a plus-1 rating, three shots on goal and three hits in just over 12 minutes of ice time during Thursday's season-opening loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Now that's stuffing the stat sheet, especially in hits leagues, where Eric Nystrom offers plenty of value after contributing 176 in last year's lockout-shortened campaign. He got a game misconduct after the second period ended -- accounting for those PIM -- so he missed the third.

Preds' Nystrom Expected To Fill Multiple Roles

News: Eric Nystrom is expected to fill a variety of roles with the Preds this season, the Tennessean reports. "He's going to kill some penalties and move up and down on the left side a little bit," coach Barry Trotz said. "You can see him playing with some offensive players and giving them that backbone — that guy who is going to get to the net and create some of that havoc when we're funneling pucks there. Other times he might be in a pure checking role playing head-to-head against some top players to get them off their game."
Analysis: For starters, Eric Nystrom will probably play up and down the Preds' lineup until he settles into an everyday role - likely on the team's third or fourth line. Playing for Dallas last season, Nystrom had 122 hits (third on the team) and just seven goals, so he will likely wind up as one of the team's energy players rather than as a pure scorer. At this point, he boasts only modest fantasy value for those of you in medium to deep formats.

Nystrom Signs With Nashville

News: Eric Nystrom signed a four-year contract worth $10 million with Nashville on Friday, according to the Predators' Official Website.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom had seven goals in 48 contests last season with the Stars on just 49 shots after notching 16 goals on 102 shots one season earlier. He chooses his shots well based on his shooting percentage and Nashville believes the former first-round pick can make an impact with the club. Those owners in deep leagues which reward shooting percentage will want to take note of Nystrom as a heady late addition to their roster.

Dallas' Nystrom Nets Goal

News: Eric Nystrom scored one of Dallas's three goals in Friday's win over Anaheim, his fifth tally of the season.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom has not been producing much this season, but he plays more of a checking role for the Stars. He might see an increase in scoring chances with Dallas trading Derek Roy and Jaromir Jagr, but he'll likely have a minimal offensive impact.

Stars' Nystrom Pots Goal Wednesday

News: Eric Nystrom scored a goal and was plus-1 in Wednesday's 7-4 loss to Calgary.
Analysis: With a limited role on the Stars' depth lines, Eric Nystrom is unlikely to provide enough at the offensive end to be of regular interest for fantasy owners. With the goal Wednesday, he now has three points in 14 games for the Stars this season.

Eric Nystrom

Nystrom Back For Dallas Tuesday

News: Eric Nystrom (leg) will play against San Jose on Tuesday, ESPN Dallas' Mark Stepneski reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom's 21 points present limited fantasy utility, but he'll be there for those who can use him Tuesday.

Eric Nystrom

Stars' Nystrom Could Return Tuesday

News: Eric Nystrom could return to the lineup Tuesday after missing three games with a leg laceration, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom has managed 16 goals in 71 games to date, but with just five assists and 22 PIMs, his fantasy impact has been marginal, unless his 171 hits are enough to help you.

Eric Nystrom

Nystrom Out Friday For Dallas

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) will not play against Vancouver on Friday, Dallas Morning News writer Mike Heika reports.
Analysis: Consider Eric Nystrom day-to-day beyond Friday, but he presumably has a fair amount of healing to deal with given that he was declared doubtful for this game as early as Wednesday.

Eric Nystrom

Stars' Nystrom Out Wednesday; Doubtful For Friday

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) will not play Wednesday against the Oilers, ESPN Dallas reports.
Analysis: He's also considered doubtful for Friday as well, so it sounds like it will take Eric Nystrom at least two more games out of the lineup to recover from the injury he suffered Monday night.

Stars' Nystrom Leaves With Lower Body Injury

News: Eric Nystrom left Monday's game with a lower body injury and will not return, the Stars' official Twitter feed reports.
Analysis: He's been a surprise source of goals (16), but really isn't all that valuable as he doesn't tally many assists or fire enough shots on goal to continue lighting the lamp that often. The Stars will likely provide more information after Monday's game.

Nystrom Ices Dallas Win

News: Eric Nystrom's goal late in the third period secured the Stars' 5-3 win over Anaheim.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom has 11 goals on the season on just 45 shots, putting his shooting percentage at 24.4 percent. The goals are an added bonus for Dallas as Nystrom is a checking forward that averages just six seconds of power-play time per contest.

Dallas Sniper Nystrom Scores 10th Of Season

News: Eric Nystrom bagged his 10th goal of the campaign in Saturday's loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Considering that his previous season high is 11, we'd venture that this will be a career year for the young sniper. His shooting percentage is off the charts right now at 25.6 percent, and that isn't going to last; but for now, you may as well ride him for a while.

Nystrom Traded to Dallas From Minnesota

News: Eric Nystrom has been traded to Dallas for future considerations, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom fell out of Minnesota's plans after a disappointing preseason and was recently sent to Houston of the AHL. It's not clear he'll have a bigger role in Dallas than he had last season with the Wild, and he has limited fantasy upside since he's mostly on the ice for his defensive ability.
