Niederreiter scored his sixth goal of the season in Monday's overtime loss to New Jersey. He's scored a goal in four consecutive games.

EDGE Analysis

Niederreiter continues his recent hot streak with six goals and three assists in his last 11 games. Unfortunately he's not getting much help as just four Wild forwards have scored goals since Nov. 6.

Niederreiter potted a goal during Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Niederrieter has been a model of consistency since returning from injury in late-October with five goals and eight points in his last 10 games. The Swiss winger is getting plenty of opportunity to best last season's 57-point campaign, so play him regularly.

Niederreiter (ankle) returned to action for Tuesday night's game against the Jets, picking up a primary assist in the evening's 2-1 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Jets goalie Connor Hellebuyck moved to 6-0-1 on the season, despite El Nino's late bid to rally back from a two-goal deficit. Still, if you have fantasy shares in the burly winger, it must be refreshing to know that he was productive in his first contest following a six-game injury layoff.

Niederreiter (ankle) will return to action Tuesday night against the Jets, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

El Nino was originally expected to be a game-time decision for the upcoming contest, but all signs point to him being out there after a six-game injury layoff. Given Niederreiter's profile as a top-six playmaker with a role on the man advantage, it'll be worth activating him immediately in the fantasy realm.

Niederreiter (ankle) will be a game-time decision heading into Tuesday's clash with Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

Niederreiter continues to trend in the right direction, having been sidelined for the Wild's previous six outings. In his three appearances prior to getting hurt, the winger failed to secure a point while putting 11 pucks on net and dishing out five hits. If given the all-clear -- and activated off injured reserve -- the 25-year-old will likely take on bottom-six responsibilities at the onset, but could work his way into a more prominent role.

Niederreiter (ankle) is setting his sights on returning for Tuesday's home game against the Jets, Michael Russo of TheAthletic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A crafty offensive creator with a physical edge, Niederreiter has missed the past four games, with the Wild winning only once over that span. He was back on the ice skating by himself Wednesday, and this latest report adds that El Nino is preparing for a full practice Friday, at which point it''ll be even more clear whether he is to return against Winnipeg.

Niederreiter (ankle) has begun skating by himself as part of his injury rehab, Michael Russo of TheAthletic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

High-ankle sprains typically come with extended absences for the athlete, with El Nino having already missed the past four games. While he's counted on heavily in power-play situations, the Wild still rank fifth in the league in conversion percentage (27.3) on the man advantage, and it's actually the team's porous penalty kill -- where Niederreiter isn't deployed -- that's in need of a major boost.

Niederreiter has been placed on injured reserve with a high-ankle sprain and is expected to miss a minimum of three weeks.

EDGE Analysis

This is a huge blow to the Wild, as they'll now be without two of their best offensive weapons in Niederreiter and Charlie Coyle, who is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks with a broken fibula, for the foreseeable future. Niederreiter has gone scoreless through the first three games of Minnesota's 2017-18 campaign, but he was a major component of the team's offense last season, racking up 57 points (25 goals, 32 assists) in 82 games. That production is nearly impossible to replace, but the recently recalled Luke Kunin will presumably take on a prominent role for the Wild while Niederreiter and Coyle are sidelined, making the University of Wisconsin product a must-add in most fantasy formats.

Niederreiter (undisclosed) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets, Michael Russo of TheAthletic.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Niederreiter appeared to sustain his injury when Chicago's Tanner Kero fell on his leg during Thursday's matchup with the Blackhawks. Russo believes the 25-year-old forward may be dealing with a high-ankle sprain, an injury which would almost certainly sideline him for multiple weeks. Minnesota should release an update on Niederreiter's condition once the team's training staff is able to perform additional testing.

Niederreiter signed a five-year, $26.25 million contract extension Sunday with Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The man they call "El Nino" officially has a new deal, keeping him in the State of Hockey for the next half decade and preventing his arbitration hearing, which was set for Thursday. Niederreiter enjoyed career highs pretty much across the board last season, as his 25 goals, 32 assists, 57 points, plus-17 rating, 186 shots, 14 power-play goals and 2:00 of average power-play time were all new personal bests. He'll continue to man the second left-wing slot behind Zach Parise and hold down his role on the team's top power-play unit heading into 2017-18.
