Nino Niederreiter

At times, last season Niederreiter showed flashes of the elite-level power forward he can become. At other times he just wasn’t much of a factor. “El Nino” still managed 24 goals and 37 points playing as a 22 year old. He’s still learning how to be a factor more consistently and rounding out his game at both ends of the ice, but the Swiss right winger should flirt with the 30-goal mark in 2015-16.

Niederreiter’s value – along with that of some of the other younger Wild players – could be given a boost if he starts seeing more power play time. Yeo will have to give the man advantage a different look for the upcoming season. The main question is what kinda line changes might you see? and who may find themselves in a larger role?
