Detroit’s Gustav Nyquist nets his 16th goal

Detroit Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist scored his 16th goal of the season during the Red Wings' 5-2 loss to the visiting Chicago Blackhawks Wednesday night.

What It Means:

Nyquist had an 11-game goalless drought until he scored Monday night. In 63 games this season, Nyquist has 34 points. Also scoring for Detroit Wednesday was Brad Richards, his eighth of the season. But this one was all Chicago, which had leads of 3-0 and 4-1 before Nyquist found the net at 17:51 of the third period.

Our rest-of-season projections peg Nyquist to score five more goals with six more assists over the remainder of the campaign. His 2.5 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength is a career high while his 55.5 Corsi For Percentage is a touch over his career average.
