Niederreiter will work in the top six during Friday's game versus the Oilers, Sarah McLellan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Niederreiter receives a promotion from the bottom six since Mikko Koivu (lower body) will sit out. The 26-year-old has 13 points and a minus-10 rating in 28 games, but he'll be working with Eric Staal and Jason Zucker now, making him a worthy fantasy commodity.
