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.
