Paquette (lower body) is projected to be a scratch for Sunday's matchup with the Sabres. Paquette is likely to finish his third NHL season missing the final 16 games in a row. Assuming he does not play, the 23-year-old finishes the campaign with four goals, six assists, 68 shots on goal, and a minus-6 rating while averaging 11:31 of playing time.
Paquette (lower body) is projected to miss Friday's road matchup with the Canadiens, NHL.com reports. Paquette continues to miss game after game and it's beginning to look like he may not be able to crack the lineup before the regular season comes to a close. He'll have one more chance to do so Sunday against Buffalo.
Paquette (lower body) is out of the lineup again Sunday against the Stars, Lightning Insider's Erik Erlendsson reports. Paquette's absence from morning skate foreshadowed this outcome, but now he can safely be avoided in fantasy lineups. The young forward hasn't produced much even when given the opportunity this season, totaling just 10 points in 58 games while averaging just 11:31 of ice time. His next chance to return comes Tuesday when the team travels to Boston.
Paquette (lower body) won't get back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Wings, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Per the report, Paquette's injury has been a frustrating one, as he made some progress and then hit a wall. Coach Jon Cooper admitted that at this stage, "We've just got to wait and see on him." The forward's return thus does not appear imminent.
Paquette (lower body) isn't projected to play Monday against Chicago. There's still a chance the forward will be ready by puck drop, but at this point, it seems like he'll be unable to go. If he can't suit up, he'll get another crack at it Thursday against Detroit.
