Niederreiter scored with the net empty in Sunday's series-clinching win over the Blues.

Niederreiter wreaked havoc on the Blues with three goals and an assist in the opening round. Four different Wild players were involved on the scoring players that led to Niederreiter points in the series, showing that he can effectively adjust to different line combinations. Niederreiter is coming up huge when it matters most, making him a fine choice in fantasy playoff formats.

Niederreiter collected a power-play assist in Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Blues.

Niederreiter found Jared Spurgeon to get the Wild on the board after the Blues raced to a 3-0 first-period lead, but that would be the extent of the Wild offense in a game they were thoroughly whipped. Through four games in the series, Niederreiter has performed about as well as you expect from a third-line forward, tallying a goal, assist, and eight shot attempts over four games.

Niederreiter (undisclosed) will play Saturday against the Blues.

Niederreiter was one of three players that missed Thursday's game against the Predators due to a "nagging" injury, but he'll get in one final tune-up Saturday before the postseason commences. The young winger enters the regular-season finale with 24 goals and 13 assists over his 79 games this season.

Niederreiter will be held out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Predators due to an undisclosed "nagging" injury, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Niederreiter was able to play through a bruised foot in Tuesday's win over the Blackhawks, but with the Wild having now secured a playoff berth, the winger will be able to pick up some rest. He'll be rested along with Thomas Vanek and Zach Parise on Thursday, but all three players are expected to draw back in the lineup for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Blues. Aside from a two-goal game March 28 against the Kings, Niederreiter has been a blank slate in both of the scoring categories the last 10 contests, which would have made him a shaky fantasy option even if he suited up Thursday.

Niederreiter potted a pair of goals and was a plus-3 in Saturday's win over the Kings.

Niederreiter now has 24 goals on the season -- 30th most in the NHL. While he's only got 37 points in 75 games, the 22-year-old had turned into a lethal goal-scorer and is producing nicely on a line with Mikko Koivu.

Niederreiter tallied his fifth game-winning goal of the season Saturday against the Blues.

Another clutch performance from Niederreiter, who has recorded one point in four of his last five games. He's been producing steadily this season, managing 22 goals and 34 points in 68 games on the season. Skating on the second line with Mikko Koivu, the 22-year-old's 30-goal potential makes him a reliable fantasy option in most formats.
