Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Notches assist in shootout victory

Kucherov picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 shootout victory over the Panthers.

Despite notching two points in three games, he's off to a bit of a quiet start -- the Russian winger has taken just six shots so far (he averaged 2.71 per game last year) and is still seeking his first goal. Still, there's no reason to expect anything less from Kucherov than what he's delivered over the past two seasons, which is to say borderline-elite production. Still just 23, he may not even have reached his ceiling yet.
