Detroit Red Wings

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, 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.
