Niederreiter scored a power-play goal on four shots and had two PIM in Tuesday's 5-2 win over Detroit. Niederreiter found the net midway through the second period to give the Hurricanes a 2-1 lead. It snapped a six-game scoring drought for the 27-year-old and his four shots on goal matched his season high. Niederreiter has 11 goals and 29 points in 67 games, a disappointing drop-off in production from his 23-goal campaign a year ago.
Niederreiter scored a goal on four shots in Tuesday's 4-1 victory over the Predators. Niederreiter scored just over eight minutes into the second period to extend Carolina's lead to 3-1. It was Niederreiter's ninth goal of the season, a disappointing output considering the 27-year-old piled up 14 goals and 30 points in 36 games last season after being acquired from Minnesota.
Niederreiter potted a goal on two shots, dished an assist and went plus-3 in Friday's 5-2 win over the Devils. Niederreiter opened the scoring at 3:43 of the first period, and then set up Joel Edmundson as the latter scored in the third. The Swiss winger snapped a four-game point drought with Friday's effort. He's up to eight tallies, 25 points, 93 shots and a minus-3 rating in 56 contests. Niederreiter won't have widespread fantasy appeal as long as he remains in a bottom-six role.
Niederreiter scored a goal on four shots, dished two hits and added two PIM in Sunday's 4-3 shootout win over the Canucks. Niederreiter was a healthy scratch for Friday's game against Vegas, but he bounced back well in his return to the lineup. The Swiss winger has three points in his last seven games, and 23 points through 51 contests overall. It's unlikely he comes near last season's 53-point output, but the 27-year-old could reach 40 if he can recover some of his scoring touch.
Niederreiter dished out an assist and fired three shots on net in Sunday's 2-1 shootout win versus the Islanders. Niederreiter also missed a shot in the shootout, but that afforded Justin Williams to write a storybook ending by potting the winner in his season debut. The 27-year-old Niederreiter continues to be productive offensively as he bounces around the lineup, recording 22 points -- eight on the power play -- over 49 games.
