The Detroit Red Wings will be without Gustav Nyquist at a critical time in the season.
Nyquist only was penalized for the high stick. He was not ejected from the game.
The six-game ban will cost Nyquist $158,333.33 in salary. He’s eligible to return to the Red Wings lineup March 4 against the Edmonton Oilers. That’s the third game of a five-game road trip for Detroit.
