Preds' Nystrom Skates Wednesday

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) skated on his own Wednesday morning, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom's absence from line rushes during the Preds' morning session rules the winger out for their postseason opener Wednesday against the Blackhawks. He hasn't played since March 3 with the injury, and it seems unlikely that coach Peter Laviolette has designs of bringing him back in the lineup in the near future due to his lengthy absence.

Preds' Nystrom Remains Out

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) remains sidelined, according to Brooks Bratten of NHL.com.
Analysis: As the postseason approaches, it remains unclear when Eric Nystrom will return to the Preds' lineup, making him a risky roll for Nashville backers in playoff pools.

Preds' Nystrom Skates Tuesday

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) participated in Tuesday's morning skate, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom rotated in with the third line during the session, but he won't be a candidate to enter the lineup Tuesday versus the Canucks. Instead, the Predators would probably like to see Nystrom get in some more contact work during practices after he missed the previous 12 games with the injury. His eventual return will give the Preds an added dose of physicality in their bottom-six ranks, but he's not expect to offer many contributions in the fantasy realm.

Preds' Nystrom Not Traveling

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) will not travel with the Predators during their two-game road trip that begins Thursday in Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom still looks to be a ways off of a return. The winger, who has primarily slotted into a bottom-six role this season, hasn't played since March 3.

Preds' Nystrom (Lower Body) Out Four Weeks

News: Eric Nystrom (lower body) is expected to be out for the next four weeks, Mike Organ of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom was forced out of Tuesday's game against the Devils, and he's now in danger of missing the rest of the regular season. It would seem his best-case scenario is a return for the final few games in order to prepare for the playoffs.

Eric Nystrom

Preds' Nystrom Remains Under Evaluation

News: Coach Peter Laviolette indicated that Eric Nystrom (lower body) remains under evaluation, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Laviolette's words would seem to suggest that Eric Nystrom's injury is being viewed as more than a day-to-day situation, so it probably wouldn't be wise to bet on a return to action over the next handful of games. As a fourth-line player with only seven goals and 12 points in 60 games, Nystrom's absence probably won't make many ripples in the fantasy realm.

Preds' Nystrom Exits With Lower-Body Injury

News: Eric Nystrom left Tuesday's game against the Devils with a lower-body injury, John Glennon of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom skated seven shifts and logged 5:56 of ice time before departing. The Predators should provide an update on his condition prior to Thursday's game against the Islanders, but he'll retain the day-to-day designation for now.

Rare Assist For Preds' Nystrom

News: Eric Nystrom registered an assist during Tuesday's 3-2 OT win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom now has just two points in 10 games since returning from a five-game stint on the IR back in mid-January. Playing mainly on the Preds' fourth line with Paul Gaustad and Taylor Beck, his opportunities to contribute offensively will continue to be very limited. As such, he should be owned in very deep fantasy formats only.

Preds' Nystrom Poised To Return

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and appears on track to play Tuesday against Montreal.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom, who last suited up on Jan. 6, has been limited to nine points and eight PIM in 39 games thus far. Even though he's now back in the fold for the Predators, his continued presence on the team's checking line won't provide him with much fantasy value.

Preds' Nystrom (Upper Body) Nearing Return

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) practiced Monday and could be close to a return, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: It's a good sign for Eric Nystrom, who has been on injured reserve since Jan. 8. He has been eligible to return since last week, however the team has opted to keep him out a few more days so that he can get some extra practice time under his belt. While it's possible Nystrom may suit up for Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, a more likely scenario may see him sitting out until after the All-Star Break.

Preds' Nystrom (Upper Body) Nearing Return

News: Eric Nystrom (upper body) skated on his own Monday and will be eligible to return from IR Thursday, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Assuming he suffers no setbacks, look for Eric Nystrom to be back in the lineup Friday against Washington. He has missed the last two games with the injury.

Preds' Nystrom Lands On IR

News: Eric Nystrom (unspecified injury) has been placed on IR by the Predators, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: With Eric Nystrom (who has nine points in 39 games to date) and James Neal both landing on IR, the Preds have recalled forward Miikka Salomaki from AHL Milwaukee.

Rare Assist For Preds' Nystrom

News: Eric Nystrom snapped a 13-game pointless drought by assisting on Roman Josi's game-winning goal in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Carolina.
Analysis: With just nine points in 39 games so far this season, it will be tough for Eric Nystrom to match last year's 21-point effort. On the positive side, perhaps the best you can say about Nystrom's season so far is that he's managed to turn around the ugly minus-25 rating he posted last season into a tidy plus-5 this year. But unless your fantasy league puts heavy emphasis on plus-minus, that's cold comfort. In the meantime, continue to search your waiver wire for suitable replacements.

Nystrom Failing To Add Offene For Preds

News: Eric Nystrom was held pointless for the seventh straight game Monday against the Blue Jackets. He now has just eight points in 32 games so far this season.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom has been a major disappointment for the Preds after signing a four-year, $10 million contract in July of last year. For fantasy purposes, he doesn't rank high enough in any statistical category to make himself useful outside of very deep leagues. Avoid.

Preds' Nystrom Snaps Extended Drought

News: Eric Nystrom collected his first points since Oct. 11 on Tuesday, posting a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in a 9-2 crushing of the Leafs.
Analysis: After starting the year with two goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating in the first two games, Eric Nystrom proceeded to go 15 consecutive contests without registering a point or finishing on the plus side of the ledger. He occasionally busts out with productive games like this, but cannot be counted on for fantasy purposes.

Preds' Nystrom Records Three Points In Win

News: Eric Nystrom scored his second goal of the season and added two assists, to go with a plus-3 rating in Saturday's win over the Stars.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom has now scored in back-to-back games, playing on the team's fourth line and seeing no power-play time. Although he did manage 21 points in 2013-14, Nystrom is seen as a depth player, making him not worth your time in fantasy. He may be worth a look in some very deep leagues, but don't count on more than 20-30 points.

Preds' Nystrom On Fourth Line In Preseason

News: Eric Nystrom skated primarily on the Preds' fourth line during Monday's 3-0 preseason loss to Columbus. He saw 15:13 worth of ice time and had just a single shot on goal.
Analysis: Eric Nystrom was a pleasant surprise last season, his first as a Predator after spending the previous two campaigns in Dallas. He scored 15 goals as a checking line winger, just one shy of his career high, and added six assists. If these preseason games are any indication, he will probably fill a similar role for the Preds this year.

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.

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.

Eric Nystrom

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.
