    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Goes out with a bang

    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.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Assists twice in Game 3 win Monday

    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.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Reaches 20 goals for second consecutive year

    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.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Extends point streak to five games

    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.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: In line to play Sunday

    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.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Scores goal in second straight

    Niederreiter found twine on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Senators. Niederreiter now has four goals in March, including a tally in two straight games. The 23-year-old winger will most likely have to wait another year to beat his career-high 24 goals (16 so far), but he will easily surpass last season's 37-point milestone, as the 2010 first-round pick now has 36 to date. El Nino has made strides in his third campaign with the Wild and shows promise for a bottom-six player.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Pots two goals in win

    Niederreiter filled the scoresheet in this one with two goals, an assist, two hits and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Avalanche. Niederreiter continues to keep on pushing on here in this outstanding season he's putting on. He's tallied five goals and four assists in his last nine games, showing that he's on a bit of a roll here. With 33 points in 64 games on the season, he's just four points shy of his career high in points set this past season. The 23-year-old is worth a look in some of the deeper leagues out there.

    Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Dishes out two helpers in win

    Niederreiter dished out two assists in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flames. The 23-year-old has played his part in Minnesota's offensive resurgence over the last two games, contributing three points in that span after failing to get on the scoresheet at all in his previous five. Niederreiter's production will be limited as long as he's stuck in a third-line role, but he's taking advantage of playing alongside demoted offensive-minded winger Jason Pominville.
