Nielsen is struggling mightily with zero points and a minus-5 rating over 12 games.
Detroit has been saddled with a league-worst goal differential (minus-24), which partially excuses Nielsen's poor rating, but the lack of offensive production is quite alarming. Of course, it doesn't help that he's averaging only 13:09 of ice time -- a career low as measured against his other 11 campaigns playing full time.
