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.

Niederreiter was a late scratch from Thursday's game against the Capitals because of a lower body injury, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Niederreiter reportedly took the ice for warmups but didn't complete the skate. He may have injured himself right before the game, or it may be that he was already hampered by the issue. Either way, he's considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's game against the Hurricanes.

Niederreiter scored his 20th and 21st goals -- the latter into an empty net -- in Thursday's win over the Predators.

He's now cleared the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career, and Nino has a good shot at surpassing last year's 36 points, though he's not on pace to do a whole lot more than that. While he does have five goals in his last six games, a little balance in the form of assists certainly wouldn't hurt. He's still stuck on nine for the year.

Niederreiter scored both of Minnesota's goals in a 3-2 loss to the Canucks on Monday.The 22-year-old Swiss product extended his career high in goals to 18 in this one. With just nine assists, however, he would be a prime candidate as a pitcher for baseball's Cy Young Award (18-9), as two thirds of his total points have been goals. Nonetheless, he's been a nice piece of depth scoring on fantasy rosters this year and could help those in deeper formats down the stretch -- especially if he can earn an extended stay in the Wild's top six forward corps.

Niederreiter netted his 16th goal of the season in Monday's 5-3 win over the Canucks.Niederreiter has points in three of his last four games and ranks third on the team in goals for the season. The recent uptick in scoring is promising after Niederreiter slumped through most of January, but he'll need to maintain his recent level of productivity if he hopes to earn universal fantasy appeal.

Niederreiter scored his 15th goal of the season in Tuesday's win over Edmonton.

It was his first goal in 17 games. After a hot start to the season, Niederreiter had registered just four assists in a 17-game stretch. Hopefully this outing ends his slump.

Niederreiter picked up a power-play assist and attempted three shots in Thursday's loss to the Blackhawks.

The 22-year-old hasn't tallied a goal since Dec. 16, and has two points in his 10 games since then. Niederreiter currently finds himself outside of a top-six role and probably isn't worth keeping around in most formats until he notices some sort of hot streak.
