Niskanen assisted on Nicklas Backstrom's second goal of the night during Tuesday's 6-2 win over Calgary. While a slow start plagued Niskanen's first season in DC, the Minnesotan has been highly productive in the first weeks of his second campaign in DC, with two goals and two assists in five games. With Mike Green now in Detroit, Niskanen is in line to receive more quality minutes in 2015-16 and should get closer to his 40-point season of 2013-14 and he's worth starting in all formats.
