The Sharks have acquired Gustav Nyquist from the Red Wings for a 2019 second-round pick and a conditional 2010 third-round pick.
Nyquist has enjoyed a quality campaign while playing mostly with Dylan Larkin, who is having a breakout season of his own. Nyquist has scored 15 goals with 33 assists (48 points) in 61 games with the Red Wings and the pending free agent heads to San Jose where he joins one of the deepest forward groups in the NHL. With the Sharks’ top-6 pretty much cemented in place, the third line with Joe Thornton seems like a logical landing spot for Nqyuist.
Nyquist (illness) will not play on Sunday.
Nyquist (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Monday.
Nyquist left Sunday's game in Edmonton with a lower-body injury following a knee-on-knee collision and never returned. He was able to take to the ice this morning, which is a good sign, but his status for tonight's game remains up in the air.
Nyquist (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Maple Leafs.
Nyquist missed Monday’s practice with an illness, but was on the ice for today’s morning skate and will be in the lineup against Toronto. Nyquist registered two shots in 13:48 TOI in his return from suspension and will skate with Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Tatar tonight.
Nyquist will return from his six-game suspension on Saturday.
The NHL has suspended Gustav Nyquist for six games for his slash/high-stick on Jared Spurgeon.
The Red Wings signed Gustav Nyquist to a four-year extension worth $19M.
Nyquist is skating on the Red Wings top-line with Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen.
Nyquist finished Saturday's game on the top-line and it looks like he will start Wednesday's game with Hank and 'The Mule'. Nyquist has picked up right where he left off last season, scoring a goal in each of his first two games.
Nyquist is out with a knee injury, but the injury is not serious.
The Red Wings got good news on Monday when they got good reports on Nyquist's knee injury. He will not play tonight vs. the Maple Leafs, but should be ready to go for the start of the regular season.
If Nyquist scores a goal tonight against the Montreal Canadiens he would stretch his goal-scoring streak to seven games, the longest for a Red Wing since Hull’s run in 2003 (Nov. 26 to Dec. 8).
“I was pretty young,” said Nyquist, who was 14 at the time. “I’m not surprised, he was a great player.” Nyquist is on quite a roll. He has nine goals in his past six games and 20 goals in his past 24 games. He will continue skating on a line with Riley Sheahan and Tomas Tatar.

Since January 20th, Nyquist leads the NHL in goals with 14 in 20 games.
Nyquist added two goals to his total in last night's huge 3-2 win over the Maple Leafs. After starting the year in the minors, he now leads the Red Wings in goals with 19 and has added 16 assists for 35 points in 43 games this season. With tons of players out of the lineup, the Wings will continue to lean heavily on him down the stretch, you can as well.
As expected, it looks like Nyquist (groin) is back in the Red Wings lineup tonight.
Nyquist has missed the last three games with a groin injury that he suffered on December 15. His return is important for a team who has been ravished by injuries.

Nyquist (groin) is out tonight.
With Nyquist out tonight Riley Sheahan will draw into the lineup. Nyquist is considered day-to-day but groin injuries usually keep a player out for 7-10 days.
Nyquist is not on the ice for the Red Wings morning skate.
There is no word on why Nyquist is absent from practice. It would be a terrible break for a team who is already down four forwards. We will get an update following the morning skate.

As expected, the Red Wings have officially recalled Gustav Nyquist and he will be in the lineup tonight.
After he plays two games, he will be there to stay because he will have to go through waivers to get back to the AHL. The Red Wings will obviously not place him on waivers, because he would immediately be claimed. Nyquist led the Grand Rapids Griffins with 21 points (7G / 14A) in 15 games. Hopefully the talented forward sparks the Red Wings quiet offence. Expect him to skate on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen.
The Red Wings will recall Nyquist from Grand Rapids either later tonight after the Griffins game or Thursday morning.
Gustav Nyquist earned a spot on the Detroit Red Wings' roster based on his performance last season but was a victim of the salary cap and the club's roster squeeze. Nyquist leads the Griffins with 21 points (seven goals, 14 assists) in 15 games. Once he plays two more NHL games, he is here to stay, because he would then need to pass through waivers to be sent back to the AHL. Perhaps Nyquist will play on a line with Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen, since there was an open space there in practice Wednesday.
Red Wings head coach Mike Babcock and GM Ken Holland both indicated its possible Nyquist will be recalled for tomorrow's game.
Nyquist has been in the AHL as a victim of a numbers game in Detroit. They are pressed up against the cap, but only have 11 healthy forwards right now and with Danny DeKeyser landing on Long Term IR there is room for Nyquist to be called up. In 15 games with Grand Rapids Nyquist has seven goals and 21 points which is tied for fourth in the league.

Wings have assigned Nyquist to Grand Rapids, Ken Holland said.
Nyquist being sent down is a product of the Red Wings being pressed up against the cap. He is waiver-exempt, so he can be sent down and called back up without any risk. Nyquist is clearly talented enough to play for the Red Wings, but is victim of a numbers game. He will most certainly be back in the Red Wings uniform soon.

Babcock appears set on keeping third line of Andersson, Nyquist and Tatar in place. At least for now.
Nyquist has made it clear that he wants to make the Red Wings roster out of camp, but he may be sent down. Due to the abundance of forwards the Red Wings have and being pushed up against the cap, Nyquist could start the season in AHL. Babcock still has the three young guys together on the third line, so we will have to wait and see what the Red Wings decide to do.
Nyquist received a two-year contact from Detroit that has an annual cap hit of $950,000. He'll earn $850,000 this season and $1,050,000 in 2014-15. He will still be a restricted free agent when this deal expires.
The 23-year-old forward appeared in 22 games for Detroit during the regular season, and then appeared in all 14 of the Red Wings' playoff games.
