Former Hobey Baker contender Gustav Nyquist shined with the Grand Rapids Griffins in 2012-2013 during the NHL lockout, and named as an AHL All-Star. When he was called up to Detroit later in the season, Nyquist scored three goals and added three helpers in 22 games. Nyquist showed a bit more of what he can do for the Wings in the 14 playoff appearances. Nyquist netted a pair of goals with three assists.
In August, the Red Wings rewarded the forward with a two-year deal worth a reported $1.9 million.
