  • Niederreiter scored the game-winning goal in a 5-4 overtime victory against the Sharks on Sunday. The 25-year-old's game-winner in overtime is his 10th goal of the season, putting him on pace to blow away his career-high 25 goals from 2016-17. However, there are definitely some concerns regarding Niederreiter's fantasy value. He's posted a career-high 18.5 shooting percentage through 23 games, which is likely not sustainable. His career norm in the category is 13.3 percent, so unless he increases his volume of shots to the net, then his goal scoring pace should slow. The second concerning stat is Niederreiter only has four assists. Last season, he had 32 on his way to a career-high 57 points. Niederreiter will not match his points total from a season ago unless he begins picking up more helpers.

    Niederreiter tallied two goals, including one on the power play, versus the Sabres on Wednesday.

  • Niederreiter scored his sixth goal of the season in Monday's overtime loss to New Jersey. He's scored a goal in four consecutive games as he's focused on playing near the net. "I have to go there to be successful, and that's what I've been trying to do. Getting more shots on net and I'm glad I'm getting rewarded at the moment," he told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Niederreiter continues his recent hot streak with six goals and three assists in his last 11 games. Unfortunately he's not getting much help as just four Wild forwards have scored goals since Nov. 6.

  • Niederreiter potted a goal during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Capitals. Niederrieter has been a model of consistency since returning from injury in late-October with five goals and eight points in his last 10 games. The Swiss winger is getting plenty of opportunity to best last season's 57-point campaign, so play him regularly.

  • Wild's Nino Niederreiter: Ready to rock Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Niederreiter (ankle) will return to action Tuesday night against the Jets, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports. El Nino was originally expected to be a game-time decision for the upcoming contest, but all signs point to him being out there after a six-game injury layoff. Given Niederreiter's profile as a top-six playmaker with a role on the man advantage, it'll be worth activating him immediately in the fantasy realm.
