Starting to (finally) create some noise.

Gustav Nyquist generates buzz in Red Wings scrimmage

Traverse City— He's not going to make the roster this season, but file the name of Gustav Nyquist in the back of your collective hockey minds.

In a few seasons, Nyquist could become the next player everyone will say the Red Wings stole in the draft.

A fourth-round pick in 2008 out of Maine, the Swedish forward has followed an impressive prospects tournament with a solid performance in intra-squad scrimmages.

"It was fun to be out there, it was a blast," said Nyquist, who scored an eye-opening wraparound goal during Tuesday's scrimmage, helping the White win 5-2.



2nd line winger, for sure. Can't wait to see what he produces in GR this season. I'm not predicting anything stupid like PPG, or even 60 points, I'll say anything above 40 points would be a good return, but his upside is so promising. No doubt a draft steal.

Ken Holland: He’s (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, he’s a puck hound.

Hands down my favorite prospect. Extremely skilled and extremely mature as a hockey player and a person.

Not even 3 months ago said this about Gus: "I think about half way through the year people are going to be hearing about this guy a lot more".

Happened a heck of a lot sooner than that!! I think Gus' play took even the Wings by surprise. I'm sure they expected him to show some talent, but not even they could've seen coming the performances he put forward. As each day passed he must have made their decision a little harder, in the end he's only going to GR because he's got options.

Can't wait to see what this kid can develop into.

For such an exciting prospect, you barely hear anything about him. I guess being in college means you're less likely to attract the spotlight, but after a slow start to the season he's really coming on now. He'll likely go back for a 4th and final year in college but I'd much prefer to get him to the AHL.


We're hearing it now :)

This thread makes me miss Titanium... :(

Real deal for sure. Hank 2.0 maybe? ;)

I dont think he played like Hank, more of a Filppula or Datsyuk. Very shifty and good hands, didnt protect the puck with his body a tonne like Z does

How good is this bloke?! Wow. What a steal!

He is so skilled, so creative and shifty with the puck. He's so active out there, always making something happening.

He's going to be a 20-40 type forward for many years. :thumbup:
