DETROIT (AP) - Gustav Nyquist is in impressive company.
The Detroit Red Wings forward has scored 23 goals in 28 games after having just 63 NHL games of experience.
Washington Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin and former NHL star Pavel Bure are the only two other players who have pulled off that feat since the 1989-90 season, according to STATS.
Nyquist says the only thing that matters to him is helping the Red Wings make the playoffs.
Thanks to the Swede's breakout performance after starting the season in the minors, the short-handed team has a good chance to extend its postseason streak to 23.
