Nyquist, 22, leads the Griffins in scoring this season with 30 points (9-21—30) in 30 games. He ranks second among AHL rookies and is tied for 10th in overall league scoring. The Halmstad, Sweden, native was previously recalled by Detroit on Oct. 31, logging 11:07 of ice time in his NHL debut on Nov. 1 versus the Minnesota Wild.
Nyquist is expected to join the Wings in Chicago for Friday’s game against the Blackhawks at 8:30 p.m. EST, rejoining former teammates Joakim Andersson and Chris Conner as three of the Griffins’ top five scorers in Detroit.
