|Assets:||Oozes skill and offensive ability. An amazing, elusive and natural skater, he's quite cerebral and a talented playmaker. A natural center, he has converted nicely to the wing.|
|Flaws:||Is extremely undersized for the North American pro game, so he must get stronger (and avoid being labeled too 'soft') in order to maximize his scoring prowess.|
|Career Potential:||Talented scoring forward with upside.|

Gustav Nyquist will join AHL Grand Rapids | 05/30/2013 2:32 PM
NewsGustav Nyquist will head to the AHL to play for Grand Rapids now that the Detroit Red Wings have been eliminated from the playoffs.
ImpactAccording to Detroit GM Ken Holland, Nyquist will join the Griffins in Oklahoma City Thursday night and he'll be available to play Friday. Grand Rapids trails their Western Conference final series 2-1 and they would benefit from Nyquist's skill. He registered 23 goals and 60 points in 58 games at the AHL level this year.

NewsGustav Nyquist scored a goal in Detroit's 3-2 loss on Wednesday.
ImpactNyquist has three goals and six points in 17 games this season. He's a point-per-game player in the AHL and is worth keeping an eye on during Detroit's training camp in 2013.
Gustav Nyquist tickles twine in loss | 03/20/2013 10:28 PM
NewsGustav Nyquist lit the lamp in Detroit's 4-2 loss to the Leafs on Wednesday night.
ImpactNyquist, who played 12:24 and fired four shots on goal, has two points in three games since his recall. There's some great skill here -- the 23-year-old had 23 goals and 37 assists in the AHL -- but there's going to be some ups and downs as with any young player who adjusts to the NHL game. Drew Miller had the other goal for the Wings.

NewsGustav Nyquist has been called up by Detroit.
ImpactHe'll draw back into the lineup in the place of Patrick Eaves, who has a jaw injury. "He played a game last night; give him a six-hour bus ride, let him sleep for a bit and we'll let him play tonight to see how mentally tough he is," said a tongue-in-cheek Mike Babcock. "It's all part of the training to be a Red Wing." Nyquist leads the AHL in scoring with 60 points (23 goals, 37 assists) in 58 games. He has appeared in four games with the Red Wings, where he has one assist.

NewsGustav Nyquist might get an opportunity to play alongside Pavel Datsyuk and Johan Franzen.
ImpactThose were Nyquist's linemates during Tuesday's practice. Nyquist has excelled in the minors and if he gets a chance to play with Datsyuk and Franzen, then it he should have some fantasy value. Keep a close eye on this situation.

NewsGustav Nyquist is leading the AHL in scoring with 60 points.
ImpactNyquist has 23 goals and 37 assists in 57 games and has a three point lead over Tyler Johnson of the Syracuse Crunch. Nyquist has already played two games with the Red Wings this season and it seems to be only a matter of time until he is recalled. He will make a nice pick up in deep leagues once he establishes himself in the NHL as he is a scorer.

NewsThe Detroit Red Wings have called up Gustav Nyquist from the minors.
ImpactNyquist made his season debut on Jan. 22 and logged 11:42 minutes in that contest. He's not expected to have any fantasy value this season, although given the rate that the Red Wings have been losing forwards at, it certainly wouldn't shock us if Nyquist sticks around for more than just a few days.
Red Wings recall Gustav Nyquist for Tuesday | 01/22/2013 1:38 PM
NewsThe Detroit Red Wings recalled Gustav Nyquist to take Mikael Samuelsson's (groin) place Tuesday night.
Detroit Free Press
ImpactNyquist had seven points in 18 games last season for the Wings, but didn't make Detroit out of camp this season. Coach Mike Babcock said he expects Nyquist to skate on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Johan Franzen, as well as get some time on the power play. If he sticks, Nyquist could be worth a look, but we would leave him on the waiver wire until then.
Red Wings roster set in stone | 01/13/2013 9:58 AM
NewsThe Detroit Red Wings opening night roster isn't likely to include Gustav Nyquist.
ImpactNyquist was productive for the Wings last season with seven points in 18 contests, but with everyone at full health his services aren't currently required. He should be one of the first players summoned from Grand Rapids this year.
