Khan examines Frans Nielsen’s 2018-19 possibilities

MLive’s Ansar Khan takes a look at Frans Nielsen’s 2018-19 season possibilities this morning:

2018-19 outlook: After playing on the third line last season, Nielsen likely will center the second line if Henrik Zetterberg doesn’t play. His ice time should increase slightly, and he’ll probably get more power-play minutes, which should lead to more production.

Nielsen fills many roles. He can play on scoring line or a checking role. He can play on the second power-play unit and the top penalty-killing unit. He is a go-to guy on the shootout as the NHL’s all-time leader in that specialty.
