Niederreiter had two assists and fired seven shots on goal in Sunday's season-ending Game 6 loss to the Stars. Niederreiter finished the postseason on a four-game point streak, compiling a goal and five assists in that span. After notching a career-high 43 points in the regular season, Niederreiter took another step forward in the postseason. Look for the 23-year-old to be a steal in fantasy drafts next season.
Niederreiter collected two assists Monday in a 5-3 win over Dallas in Game 3. The Swiss winger was instrumental in the Wild's comeback in this one, setting up the first two of four unanswered goals in what was essentially a do-or-die game on home ice. Through 26 playoff games, Niederreiter has scored at an even point-every-other-game pace (13 points), so if the Wild have any hope of getting out of Round 1 against the Stars without Zach Parise (back), they're going to need him to keep producing.
Niederreiter scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 victory against the Blackhawks. Niederreiter can't be contained around the crease in March, totaling eight goals in 14 outings. The count is double the amount he's managed in any other month this season, and the 23-year-old has now reached the 20-tally count for a second consecutive year. The winger continues to build upon his best campaign as a pro -- 43 points and counting.
Niederreiter picked up a goal and an assist during Sunday's 3-2 shootout victory over Chicago. That's now points in five straight games for the 23-year-old. He was banged up a big in Saturday's game, but appeared to not be hindered by any ailment in this game. Niederreiter now has two multi-point games in the last five contests, and has become relevant in fantasy hockey. The forward doesn't seem to be slowing down, so keep him rolling.
Niederreiter (leg) appears good to go Sunday against the Blackhawks. Niederreiter reportedly left Saturday's contest against Carolina late with some sort of leg issue, but it looks as though he should be no worse for the wear. That's great news for the winger, who enters Sunday riding a four-game point streak (five points in that span). It may be best to look back closer to puck drop to ensure nothing has changed, but only expect an updated status if there's reason to believe he will miss the tilt.
