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.
Niederreiter broke out a five-game point drought with his sixth goal of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Kings.
Following a solid month of December (10 points in 13 games), El Nino has been a bit sluggish so far in January. Now with just 21 points at roughly the halfway point of the season, Niederreiter is on pace to fall short of the 40-point mark after posting 53 points last year. We need to see more from him before we can start recommending him for fantasy on a regular basis.
Niederreiter did not record a point during Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens, but still finished the month of December with 10 points in 13 games.
El Nino struggled through the first two months of the season with just 10 points in his first 27 games, but he's certainly come alive since then. He will still be challenged to match the 53 points he posted last season, but another 40-point campaign seems very attainable right now given his current pace. Niederreiter is currently skating on a line with two of the Canes' top scorers -- Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho -- which should continue to provide him plenty of scoring opportunities as we head into the second half of the season. Start him with confidence.
Niederreiter had two assists and three shots with a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 6-3 win versus Winnipeg.
Niederreiter has been streaky on the offensive end all season long, but is currently in the midst of one of his most productive stretches of the season. Tuesday's two-assist effort gave him five points (one goal, four assists) in his last five games. The 27-year-old has four goals and 11 assists in 34 games this season.
Niederreiter scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Edmonton. He also had two PIM.
Niederreiter scored his fourth goal of the season to put the Hurricanes up 2-0 with two minutes left in the first period, then set up Ryan Dzingel's power-play marker almost exactly two minutes later. The 27-year-old has 13 points in 31 games.
Niederreiter has just five points in 17 games since Nov. 1.
El Nino's stock is falling fast in Raleigh. He was a successful addition for the Canes last season, registering 30 points in 36 games after being acquired from the Wild at the trade deadline. That success has not carried over to this season, and given his current pace, there's a chance Niederreiter may not crack the 30-point mark for the first time in his career. Bench him until he can find a way to turn things around.
Niederreiter scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Chicago.
Niederreiter scored at 11:54 of the second period to extend the Carolina lead to 3-0, and it held up as the eventual game-winner. He had also assisted on a Martin Necas goal in the first period. Niederreiter has a modest four points (one goal, three assists) over his last four games after a stretch that netted only three points in the prior 12 contests. Also, his goal Tuesday was just his third in 21 games after last year's 23-goal effort with Minnesota and Carolina.
Niederreiter extended his current scoreless drought to four games Saturday against the Senators. He saw ice time of 13:31 and finished with a minus-2 rating and just a single shot on goal.
After finishing last season with a combined 53 points with the Canes and Wild last year, El Nino has certainly endured a tough start to the season. He now has just six points in 17 games (2G, 4A) and has been held off the scoresheet in 12 of those contests. For now, Niederreiter continues to skate on the Canes' second line, but with the team's recent hot start fading in the rearview mirror -- they have now lost four straight -- coach Rod Brind'Amour might be inclined to shuffle his lines in order to spark a little chemistry. Keep an eye on Niederreiter's ice time and linemates, and be prepared to bench him if his struggles continue.
Niederreiter scored his first goal of the season and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Blackhawks.
The 27-year-old had only three points, all helpers, through the first 10 games of the season, but Niederreiter finally found the back of the net late in the second period at 5-on-5 when he ripped a shot over Corey Crawford's shoulder. He was impressive for Carolina at the end of last season after coming over in a trade -- scoring 14 goals and 30 points in 36 games -- and Saturday's performance may be a sign he's re-discovering that spark.
Niederreiter registered a pair of assists and four shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.
Niederreiter helped set up Teuvo Teravainen's goal early in the first period and added the primary assist on a Dougie Hamilton snipe late in the second. The Swiss winger is up to three helpers in five games this season. He had 30 points in 36 contests after a midseason trade from the Wild to the Hurricanes last year, and his usage alongside Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen makes for a threatening trio of forwards.
Niederreiter broke a three-game pointless drought to start the season with his first assist in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
El Nino has been struggling so far in the early going, but notching his first helper might be just the thing to get him going. For now, he continues to skate on the Canes' top line alongside Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen, but don't be surprised if he gets shuffled down to a lower unit if his struggles continue. Monitor closely.
Niederreiter has been added to Team Switzerland's roster for the IIHF World Hockey Championship in Slovakia.
Niederreiter's NHL campaign ended on a sour note Thursday when the Hurricanes were eliminated from the playoffs by the Bruins, so he'll now head to Slovakia to try and help Team Switzerland capture gold on an international stage. The 26-year-old winger, who racked up 23 goals and 53 points in 82 games this season, will once again be a solid secondary option in all fantasy formats in 2019-20.
Niederreiter registered an assist, two PIM and two blocked shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders in Game 4.
After being limited to just one assist in seven games in the first round, Niederreiter had three points over four contests as the Hurricanes swept the Islanders. Niederreiter was a revelation with 14 goals and 16 assists over 36 games with the Hurricanes in the regular season after being traded from the Wild, but he's taken a step back in the postseason so far.
Niederreiter scored his first goal of the playoffs during Sunday's 2-1 win over the Islanders in Game 2.
His tally just over a minute into the third period proved to be the game-winner, as the 'Canes rallied from a 1-0 deficit after starting netminder Petr Mrazek left due to a lower-body injury. Should Mrazek miss additional time, the club could need a lot more offense from Niederreiter, who managed only two assists in seven games against the Caps in the first round, if it's going to maintain a 2-0 stranglehold on the series.
Niederreiter tallied a goal and four shots during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Capitals.
Niederreiter continues his torrid pace since being acquired in a Jan. 17 trade with Minnesota, as this was his 13th goal and 26th point in just 31 games as a Hurricane. The Swiss winger has rekindled his offense with the Hurricanes and should be squarely on the radar when it comes time to draft your 2019-20 fantasy rosters.
Niederreiter notched an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sabres.
After falling out of favor in Minnesota, El Nino has certainly resurrected his career in Carolina. Now with 22 points in 25 games since his arrival in Raleigh back in January, Niederreiter is a huge reason why the Canes are in the hunt for a playoff spot for the first time in 10 seasons. He should continue to be a big contributor down the stretch, so enjoy the ride.
