from Dana Wakiji of the Wings' website,
The good news for Red Wings center Frans Nielsen is he is tied with Gustav Nyquist for the team lead in assists with 14.
The bad news is Nielsen has not scored a goal in his first 20 games this season.
"You want to get some goals for sure but at the same time I think you can't get frustrated about it," Nielsen said after Tuesday's practice at the Belfor Training Center. "I know it's going to come. I just gotta keep playing my game and hopefully one turns into more."
It is the longest drought to the start of the season of Nielsen's career.
In his rookie season in 2007-08, Nielsen played in just 15 games and scored in his 14th against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Prior to this year, that was his longest season-opening goal drought.
