  • Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist: Hit with six-game ban

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/17) Nyquist will face a six-game suspension for high-sticking Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon in the face during Sunday's game, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    This is a relatively light punishment for the Swede considering he waived his right to an in-person hearing, but now he won't be eligible to return until an away game against the Oilers on March 4. In his absence, look for Thomas Vanek to jump into the top six with fourth-line pest Steve Ott rounding out the forward group more frequently.

    Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist: Unlikely to play Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/17) Nyquist is expected to sit out of Wednesday's game against the Blues due to a probable suspension, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    The Red Wings did not hold morning skate Wednesday as they pay their respects to long-time owner Mike Ilitch -- who passed away Friday at the age of 87 -- but Nyquist should soon learn his fate. There's been speculation that the sniper could miss 5-to-6 games after spearing Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon in the face with his stick in Sunday's game. It would be wise to avoid using Nyquist with his playing status in jeopardy possibly for the rest of the month.

    Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist: Bypasses in-person hearing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/17) Nyquist will have a phone hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for hitting Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon in the face with his stick in Sunday's game.

    Gus was offered the chance to conduct an in-person hearing with the league, but by waiving his right to the formal hearing, he's assumed the risk of being suspended for at least six games. This is definitely a situation worth monitoring for fantasy owners of the Swede, as he's a top-line winger who's been averaging 2:54 of ice time on the man advantage this campaign.

    Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist: Subject of controversial play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/17) Nyquist picked up an assist to go along with a plus-2 rating -- and an invitation by the NHL's Department of Player Safety to attend an in-person hearing for delivering a high-stick to Jared Spurgeon's face -- in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Wild.

    Nyquist took exception to Spurgeon cross-checking him from behind, appearing to retaliate with a stick jab to the defenseman's grill -- yet the sniper maintains that the play was unintentional. Gus was assessed a double-minor on the play, and fortunately No. 46 was able to return after getting stitches on his cheek. There has been no shortage of Minnesota fans calling for the Swede to be suspended, so it'll be interesting to see what the league's safety division decides.

    Red Wings' Gustav Nyquist: Heating up as trade rumors swirl

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/28/17) Nyquist managed three goals and four assists over the last 10 games -- two of those points came on the power play.

    In terms of his fantasy prospects, Gus often gets lost among the throng of similarly-skilled forwards on Detroit's roster. However, he's gradually worked his way up to the top line with Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Tatar, and also gets time on the top man-advantage unit. With the Red Wings going nowhere fast in the standings and putting their 25-season playoff streak on the line -- there have been some rumblings that he could be dealt. Citing league sources, the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Blackhawks have been in talks with the Red Wings regarding the talented sniper and even his linemate Tatar.
