TW: Gustav Nyquist is movin’ on

If it’s too much information for you, just scroll on:

Realitor.com’s Eric Alt reports that Gustav Nyquist is pulling up stakes in Michigan after signing a long-term contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets. If you’re interested…

After being drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in 2008, Gustav Nyquist spent seven seasons wearing the winged wheel.

Naturally, the Halmstad, Sweden native settled in the Motor City during his tenure with the Wings, purchasing a 5,111-square-foot home in the exclusive Bloomfield Village area of Michigan. The forward is now ready to skate away from his Bloomfield Township home, which is on the market for $2.25 million.

In February, the rebuilding Red Wings traded Nyquist to San Jose to help the Sharks with their playoff push. After the season ended, Nyquist became a free agent and opted not to re-up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He instead agreed to a new four-year, $22 million contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

  1. The moment I remember most was when he skated a big circles (it seemed like forever) in the other teams end. Sort of defined him, I guess he couldn’t find a Wing to pass the puck.

    A little disappointed in “Goose” overall. Not sure if that is fair but he seemed to play when he wanted. Oh well Columbus plays a bit different style. Coach is not much of a fancy Dan guy. Good trade by KH, ***cough*** ***cough***
