Gustav Nyquist News
Nashville Predators left wing Gustav Nyquist kept his recent good form going with a two-assist effort in Monday's 4-3 victory over Colorado. He helped Jeremy Lauzon get his first goal of the campaign and also tallied an assist when Filip Forsberg struck a late game-tying goal. The Predators made it 3-3 with just 38 left to play in regulation but also found a game-winning goal as Yakov Trenin lit the lamp 16 seconds later. Nyquist started life in the Music City in pretty poor form, but he has built up momentum recently with a five-game point streak, which consists of one goal and six assists. The run has doubled Nyquist's points tally for the season.
Minnesota Wild winger Gustav Nyquist continued his good start with the team with a two-assist effort in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Dallas. Playing in only his fifth game for the Wild, Nyquist helped Oscar Sundqvist and Frederick Gaudreau to score. The Swedish winger now has one goal and seven assists in Minnesota colors. He's been a great addition to the Wild attack, and Nyquist's contributions could become vital in the playoffs after Ryan Hartman (lower body) dropped out of the lineup for Game 2.
Minnesota Wild winger Gustav Nyquist finally made his team debut Saturday against St. Louis, and it was a good one. Lining up on the third line, Nyquist played for only 11:50, but he made a big impact in a 5-3 victory with two assists. Both of his helpers came inside a few minutes in the second period, as Frederick Gaudreau scored a power-play goal and Jared Spurgeon logged the eventual game-winner. Nyquist was brought in from Columbus in February, but he arrived in Saint Paul with an upper-body injury. The team will be relieved to see him getting back healthy for the playoffs. He will have three more regular-season games to get himself back up to speed. Including his time in Ohio, Nyquist has posted 10 goals and 24 points in 49 appearances this season.
The Minnesota Wild have added winger Gustav Nyquist (upper body) from Columbus to their attack in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round pick. The 33-year-old spent two and a half seasons with the Blue Jackets, posting 43 goals and 74 assists in 200 games. He's on 10 goals and 12 assists this season with 48 games played and is currently recovering from an upper-body injury. Nyquist last played on Jan. 25 and it's unclear if he can return to the lineup before the regular season finishes, but he will definitely be of great help come playoff time. The Swedish winger, who has recorded 423 points in 700 games for his whole career, will occupy a middle-six spot on the team once he's healthy.
