Gustav Nyquist- Kid is Insane!

I know we've got a prospect thread, but Gus deserves his own thread for appreciation because right now he's on a hot streak that is getting quite ridiculous.

Tonight he had 2 goals and 2 assists, was +3 and had 7 SOG.

Code:
2008/09 - 38 13 19 32
2009/10 - 32 17 32 54
I believe that after tonight he is the NCAA's leading scorer.

WOW!

He was the leading scorer after last night's game. He's up to 54 points now. 17 goals and 37 assists.

I had a feeling that might have been the case. Wow, even more impressive.

The good thing is that even in losses, in beatings, he still produces so he's not a frontrunner.

Everything I've read says that he's got amazing vision, reads the play as well as anyone and he's an unbelievable set-up man who always gets the puck to the open man. He's surely got to be our best offensive talent, even ahead of Tatar.

All the sorts of descriptions I've read of him is that he's essentially Maine's Zetterberg. One of the 2 assists was on a shorthanded goal. He's playing in all situations.

He's been my favorite prospect since last season when I saw him in a half dozen Maine games. Kid was not only terrific, but spoke like a true professional in the few interviews I saw. I was extremely impressed with him and am not surprised he's done what he has this season. The kid is relentless in puck pursuit and is a solid 2-way player, but still needs to get stronger.

Sounds like a Zetterberg type player to me. Or at least, if you were to compare to this year and parts of last year, what Zetterberg used to be.

What makes you think Zetterberg won't return to being Zetterberg?

Well, I really don't have much of an idea of how he'll play from here on out. But if anything, it's the way he's been skating. Looks like he's really laboring just to move.

Which is why a longer off season will really benefit him. This season is a really good time to recharge and retool. With Emma playing nurse of course.

Kind of defeats the purpose of recharging, hehe.

That's really impressive. Nyquist leads all players in scoring and Brendan Smith leads all defensemen in scoring. Has any team had two prospects (1 forward and 1 defense) lead the NCAA in scoring in the same season?

Wow, HF has Nyquist listed as the 9th best prospect. Amonsgst all Red Wings prospects. That seems pretty low. RWC jumped the gun a bit making Tatar the #1 prospect and it seems a little early for HF to have Ferraro as high as they've put him.

I don't think RWC jumped the gun with Tatar, I mean we all voted Tatar as number 1 in the HF Board rankings.

Nyquist though has been on fire. Him Mursak and Tatar are going to be stars.

Lets not get carried away & all. Gustav does deserve credit for having a spectacular season but we all know that great college players w stats like this sometimes (*** I said sometimes***) don't make it in the NHL. He is still young and has a lot to learn.

But But But But

He does hail from Sweden and we have had a lot of success drafting out of Sweden, so lets hope he can build off of this as this is great news. Tatar and Nyquist gives me hope for the future.

hes the only one in the top 4 in points to play in a major conference, so he has that going for him. him and smith will both be in the top 5 for the hobey. gustavs team is ranked 14th in strength of schedule. the other 3 in the top 4 are ranked 41st, 51st and 58th (last).

Who votes? Politics will play a role. I bet an import won't do as well as he should.

Being a sophomore also hurts his chances.

I think Parise at the same age was playing in the AHL.

I think Parise was Gus' age (now) in his rookie season, so to put up those numbers is crazy. Obviously don't expect Gus to be the player Zach is but his numbers stack up well to many. Numbers in other leagues don't make you an NHL success so he's still got to do hard work but the signs are ominous.

from what google tells me, Collins played for BC. Aaron Burrell played club hockey for Utah State. Kevin Cooper played Div III for Middlebury. So only one of those guys makes any argument for your point.
