Gustav Nyquist, RW, Detroit Red Wings
"Playing above and beyond", "Doesn't belong in this league" and "A man amongst boys," are just some of the things I've heard when asking scouts about Nyquist's play so far. Currently tied for second in the AHL scoring race, Detroit's fourth-round pick in 2008 has displayed the very high level of skill scouts have grown accustomed to seeing from Nyquist going back to his time at the University of Maine. With his combination of puck skills, vision and overall offensive hockey sense to go along with an ability to consistently create chances thus far at the pro level, Nyquist will likely push for quality NHL ice time right away when the league re-opens.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
