Nieto now has seven goals on the season. Nieto has now lit the lamp in three of his last six games, though that's a pace he's not likely to sustain for long.

Oct. 25, 2017 Nieto capped off his first career hat trick on an empty-netter in the closing seconds as the banged-up Colorado Avalanche ended a three-game skid with a 5-3 victory over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night. He did not have a point in his first three games of the season.

Feb. 4, 2017 Nieto helped the Avalanche to Saturday's 5-2 win over Winnipeg with his first two-goal game in nearly two years.

Dec. 6, 2014 Nieto is on injured reserve with an ankle injury. His return is unclear.
Feb. 4, 2014 Nieto had his first two-goal game Monday night in San Jose's 5-2 loss to visiting Philadelphia. It was the third career multipoint performance for the rookie forward.

2018-07-06 analysis Nieto received a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on June 25 but the two sides are apparently still at odds on a new deal. The 25-year-old posted a career-high 15 goals last season during his second stint with the Avalanche. "Matt brings speed and offensive depth to our lineup," said Avalanche Executive Vice President/General Manager Joe Sakic. "He adds a lot of energy to our team and was a big part of our penalty kill this past season. We're excited to have him back for the next two years."
2018-07-06 update Nieto filed for salary arbitration Thursday, according to NHLPA.com. Nieto agreed to a two-year deal with the Avalanche on Friday.

2018-07-06 update Nieto filed for salary arbitration Thursday, according to NHLPA.com.
2018-06-25 analysis Nieto put together another effective campaign in his first full season with Colorado, totaling 15 goals and 11 assists across 74 games played. As expected, that earns him a qualifying offer and the two sides can continue to negotiate a longer-termed deal in the coming few weeks. Nieto is likely to slot back into the second or third line for Colorado in 2018-19.
2018-06-25 update Nieto was tendered a qualifying offer from the Avalanche on Monday, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.
2018-05-20 analysis In Nieto's second season in Colorado, he came just one point away from matching his career best, although his 26 points were largely helped by a 17.9 shooting percentage -- well above the typical average of 10. Regardless, the high points total is impressive considering he had a defensive start rate of 68 percent, and he also posted a strong plus-six rating as well. Nieto figures to slot into the
2018-05-20 update Nieto scored 15 goals and logged 11 assists during the 2017-18 campaign, while putting 84 shots on net.
2018-03-29 analysis A goal and an assist in consecutive games represents a streak for Nieto, who does have a career high in goals with 14 but has just 24 points on the year. Nieto just doesn't produce enough on a consistent basis to warrant a roster spot unless your league is very deep.
2018-03-29 update Nieto's goal was the only one for his team Wednesday in a 2-1 loss to Philadelphia.
2018-03-05 analysis The speedy winger has now found the back of the net in three consecutive games to improve to a career-high 13 goals. With 21 points, he's also now in line to take a run at topping his previous personal best in the point column (27). However, those numbers aren't strong fantasy marks in most settings, and it's also worth noting that Nieto is being deployed primarily in a defensive role. He's averag
2018-03-05 update Nieto buried an unassisted goal during Sunday's 4-3 loss to Nashville.
2018-02-14 analysis Nieto reportedly sustained his mystery ailment following Tuesday's practice. If the 25-year-old winger is unable to go, the recently recalled Rocco Grimaldi will replace him in the lineup against the Canadiens. Nieto was deemed questionable for the matchup earlier in the day, but he will slot in alongside Carl Soderberg and Gabriel Bourque on the third line. As a result, Rocco Grimaldi will serve as a healthy scratch Wednesday. Nieto ended a nine-game pointless drought with a goal Sunday against the Sabres and will attempt to build off of that effort against the Canadiens.
2018-02-14 update Nieto (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Montreal, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports. Nieto (undisclosed) will take part in Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, Mike Chambers of the Denver Post reports.

2018-02-12 analysis The tally was Nieto's 10th of the campaign, which tied his career-high total that he posted in each of his first two seasons in the league. The speedy winger has settled into a defense-first role with 68.2 percent of his five-on-five shifts beginning in his own zone and an average of 2:24 of penalty-kill time per contest. As a result, his fantasy upside remains limited. It's definitely worth notin
2018-02-12 update Nieto recorded a goal, four shots and a plus-2 rating during Sunday's 5-4 win over Buffalo.
2018-01-19 analysis Nieto only has nine goals in 37 games this season, but five of those goals have come in his last 10 games. The Avalanche have won eight straight and he's been a threat throughout the winning streak. Nieto doesn't play on the power play, however, and isn't a big-time offensive producer, so know what you're getting. With 17 points on the season, the 25-year-old is on track for a career season, makin
2018-01-19 update Nieto scored for the second consecutive game and added a helper in Thursday's win over the Sharks.
2017-12-10 analysis Before you get all excited, you need to know that Nieto happened to be on the ice killing off a man advantage at the end of the game. And that resulted in an empty net goal and empty net set-up. Nice game, but we think that's all it is.
2017-12-10 update Nieto had a huge night Saturday, scoring a goal and adding two assists in a 7-3 win over the Panthers.
2017-12-06 analysis The speedy winger has three goals, five assists and 18 shots through 19 games this season, so it's difficult to rely on him in any fantasy setting. Additionally, after showing promise during his first two seasons in the league with San Jose, it's disappointing that Nieto hasn't been able to find that offensive touch again. However, he's beginning 59.6 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defe
2017-12-06 update Nieto has recorded a single assist through 12 games since returning from an undisclosed injury Nov. 10.
2017-11-10 analysis Even prior to getting hurt, Nieto was struggling for regular ice time, as he served as a healthy scratch in five games. The winger did manage one decent outing when he went off for a hat trick versus Dallas on Oct. 24, but has otherwise been relatively ineffective in the offensive zone.
2017-11-10 update Nieto (undisclosed) will be back in the game-day lineup for Friday's tilt against Ottawa, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
2017-11-10 injury_note Nieto (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the NHL.com official media site.

2017-11-05 analysis It's uncertain when Nieto sustained his injury, as he skated for 15:03 on ice during Thursday's contest against Carolina and even tacked on an assist. Still, the 24-year-old will only miss one more contest Sunday against the Islanders, and will be eligible to return to the ice Friday versus Ottawa.

2017-10-25 analysis They were the first three goals of the season for Nieto, who was a healthy scratch in the previous two contests. The 24-year-old was a plus-4 in the victory and fired three shots on goal. Nieto isn't known for being a significant fantasy contributor, so don't buy into the hype from Tuesday too much.
