News: Niederreiter notched a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday night's 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Impact: The assist was delivered to left wing Jason Zucker with the net empty. Niederreiter has seen his power-play ice time climb in each successive year that he's been in the league, finishing with a modest 1:32 TOI average on the man advantage last season. However, he managed six goals and two assists with the limited time in those situations, showing a knack for working in heavy traffic and controlling the puck.
