As The Trade Deadline Approaches

02/11/2019 at 7:01pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Forward Gustav Nyquist is one of those potential UFAs whose name is in many rumors.

“I’d be lying if I said you didn’t hear anything,” Nyquist said after Monday’s practice at Bridgestone Arena. “You see and hear the rumors, whatever they are. I’m not too much on social media, but you hear about them.”

Nyquist joins goaltender Jimmy Howard, forwards Thomas Vanek and Martin Frk, and defensemen Niklas Kronwall, Nick Jensen and Luke Witkowski as potential free agents who could be moved.

Nyquist’s future with the Wings is unclear. General manager Ken Holland has said he’s making and receiving phone calls, and will continue to leading to the Feb. 25 deadline.

Holland also said he’d be open to re-signing some of his potential free agents, which likely includes Nyquist, 29, who is nearing a career-best season with 33 assists and 47 points (along with 14 goals).

“We have a couple of more weeks left,” said Nyquist, almost reassuring himself all the talk will soon be over. “I try not to think about any of it. But I like said, I’d be lying if I said you don’t hear anything about it.

All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
