The fifth overall pick in 2010 never got a chance when he was with the Islanders, but is finally getting his shot with the WIld. He has two assists in three games, but definitely receives a boost in value playing on the Minnesota top line.
Niederreiter, the fifth overall pick in the 2010 draft, got a look on the right side with checking-line forwards Matt Cooke and Kyle Brodziak. If Jason Zucker and Charlie Coyle wind up as Dany Heatley’s linemates, Niederreiter had to show the Wild brass that he can play a third-line role if he has any shot to make the team.
Niederreiter, known more for his scoring, had five hits, often came away from board battles with the puck and is getting stronger without the puck every game, coach Mike Yeo said.
The Minnesota WIld have acquired Nino Niederreiter from the New York Islanders in exchange for Cal Clutterbuck and the 70th overall pick (3rd round)
Niederreiter has had some issues in New York since being selected fifth overall in 2010. He scored 28 goals and added 22 assists (50 points) in 74 games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL.
#Isles Niederreiter seeking trade
Niederreiter wants out of New York. He didn't make the team out of camp, and obviously feels like he should have. He has 36 points in 39 games in the AHL, so right now he has no fantasy value. Keep an eye on this, if he gets traded to a team that gives him an opportunity to play he could become fantasy relevant.
Niederreiter continues to impress, but won’t start season with Islanders.
Until Niederreiter cracks the Islanders roster he remains irrelevant in fantasy. However when he does make it keep your eye on him.
