Pretty impressive. Nice that he can find the back of the net. Sign him up for some boxing lessons, I say.

Quick question, as for AHL players, do they have a chance of continuing their schooling or did Nyquist end up throwing away his senior years for his dream? I understand the salary of the AHL is ~38,000 and thats fine and dandy but I also feel bad that the guy is on his senior year of college and is now chasing the dream of a professional hockey player instead of finishing school. He sounds like hes got his head on his shoulders and can be a great assist to the team, I hope the best for him for his tryout and season with the GRG!

He is now a pro and won't be able to finish his senior season. Having said that, school will always be there - getting a chance at professional hockey might not.

So incredibly pumped with this news! Probably my third fav prospect behind Mursak and Pulu.

He's an underrated prospect is Gus, will at the very least be a third line winger, but probably a second. Very strong upside. :thumbup:

He won't be able to play hockey at school, but he can always go back and get the credits to get his degree.

I would be like a million times more excited aboot this if the Wings/GR had a center that would fit really well with him.

But nonetheless I can't wait to see him play.

@DetroitRedWings
In 113 NCAA games at the University of Maine, Nyquist has tallied 144 points (50 goals, 94 assists) in addition to 68 penalty minutes.


Watched some videos and the kid is a burner too with great puck skill. Getting the time in the A is for sure the best possible move here. Posted Image Dance away.

Jimmy Howard describes Nyquist as a poor man's Zetterberg.

Pretty exciting.

Highly skilled, very strong with the puck, sound defensively, Ive seen him a few times and hes just a very solid hockey player who you want on your team. Very exciting prospect, certainly one of our best.

He looks good to me, anyone think he makes the team out of camp next year? Who has more upside him or Tatar? As far as school there is the summer like what Abby has been doing at MSU.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Not a collection, but he scores at the beginning and at 1:50

Grand Rapids has two of the highest scoring centre's in the league. I don't see the issue?

Good news!

That article says he will begin playing in Grand Rapids immediately? :yowza:

Hopefully he can make an impact on the end of this year and playoffs.

He's Zetterberg without the elite hockey sense or defense, but with better wheels. He seems to get a lot of breakaways at the college level. He was really a fantastic offensive guy at the college level, basically being Maine's franchise guy for the last 2 years. He should have won the Hobey last year, but Geoffrion's senior status put him over the top. Nyquist was the best player in college hockey by a long shot that year.

He probably won't be a first line type guy, but he could be a damn good 2nd liner. I could see him playing well with Tatar.
