Nyquist signed a four-year, $22 million deal with the Blue Jackets on Monday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist is a consolation prize for a Columbus team that's losing a lot of star power with Artemi Panarin, Matt Duchene and Sergei Bobrovsky bolting in free agency. The Swede turns 30 in September and scored a career-best 60 points between the Red Wings and Sharks last season. Nyquist has topped the 40-point mark in each of the past six seasons.

Nyquist picked up a helper in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blues in Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist has three helpers in as many games in the series, but he's only managed one shot on goal and has an even plus-minus rating. He's up to 11 points through 17 games in the playoffs overall.

Nyquist supplied two assists and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Blues in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist's production has come in bunches, as Saturday marked his third two-assist outing in his last six games. He's produced a goal and nine helpers through 15 postseason appearances, meshing nicely with Logan Couture and Timo Meier on the Sharks' top line.

Nyquist posted a pair of helpers and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 3.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist has managed a goal and five helpers in 10 postseason games this year, after earning 60 points in 81 regular-season games. Nyquist's line with Logan Couture and Timo Meier had eight points in Tuesday's contest to help the Sharks establish a 2-1 series lead.

Nyquist scored a goal and added two hits in Friday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche in Game 1.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist was limited to three assists in seven games in the first round, but he scored in the first period against the Avs to break his goal drought. Nyquist is not known as a postseason performer, with 12 points in 43 playoff contests in his career, but he continues to get a run-out on the Sharks' top line.

Nyquist generated an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights in Game 1 of their first-round series.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist had 11 points in 19 games with the Sharks after being traded from the Red Wings, but ostensibly, that was a move made with the intent of shoring up the depth scoring. Nyquist totaled 60 points in 81 appearances this season, as well as 204 shots. He doesn't have to be the man in San Jose, but Sharks fans and fantasy owners alike will hope he makes a noticeable mark during the playoff run.

Nyquist scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist dished an assist to Evander Kane in the first period, and Kane returned the favor with a helper on Nyquist's goal in the third frame. The veteran winger has now posted 11 points in 19 games since being traded to the Sharks from Detroit, but he has just one tally and zero assists with the man advantage. The squad would like to see an improvement on those marks in the first round of playoffs versus the Golden Knights.

Nyquist tallied a goal on four shots in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist's goal put the Sharks ahead late in the second period, and they would not relinquish that advantage. Nyquist has nine points in 18 games with the Sharks, struggling to keep up the pace he set early in the year with the Red Wings when he had 49 points in 62 appearances. Altogether, his 58 points (21 goals, 37 helpers) in 80 contests represents a career high.

Nyquist scored a power-play goal and added a helper in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Blackhawks.

EDGE Analysis

The goal is his first power-play point since being traded from the Red Wings at the deadline. Nyquist has eight points in 14 games with the Sharks, and a career-high 57 points overall in 76 appearances between the two teams. He's struggled to adjust initially, but has seven points in his last nine games, showing that chemistry has developed with his new teammates.

Nyquist registered an assist in Monday's 7-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

EDGE Analysis

Nyquist has compiled three goals and two assists in 10 games since leaving the Red Wings for the Sharks at the trade deadline. The team shift hasn't resulted in an all-out surge for the Swede, as the punchy scoring winger has taken on a bigger defensive role at even strength for San Jose, and his power-play time is down a bit as well.
