Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula (coach's decision) will return to Tampa Bay's lineup for Thursday's matchup with Toronto, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Filppula reportedly missed his team's morning meeting, and as a result, watched Wednesday's 4-3 victory over Montreal from the press box. However, the veteran pivot's mistake will only cost him one game, as he'll slot back into a top-six role for Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs. The Finnish forward has tallied a respectable 24 points (six goals, 18 assists) in 34 games this season, making him a solid depth option in most fantasy formats.

Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Will miss Wednesday's start after missing morning meeting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula (disciplinary) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Canadiens after missing the team's morning meeting, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Filppula practiced Tuesday and took part in Wednesday's morning skate but after failing to attend a mandatory team meeting, the Lightning are choosing to hold him out of the lineup as a disciplinary measure. The center has notched eight points over his last eight outings so it seems likely the Lightning will want to get him back in the lineup for Thursday's matchup against the Maple Leafs, pending the Finn takes care of his off-the-ice responsibilities.

Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Hits assist column twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula notched a pair of late-game assists Thursday against St. Louis, adding a plus-2 rating, two shots and two PIM in a 5-2 win.

He got crushed in the faceoff dot -- 7-for-22 -- but also led the Bolts in ice time. Despite a couple games off the scoresheet immediately preceding this one, Filppula's still been operating at more than a point-per-game pace (eight in seven) over the last couple weeks. He's still not a star, but he's got some appeal in fantasy right now, as Filppula's on his finest scoring pace in three seasons.

Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Collects hat trick of assists Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Filppula handed out a trio of assists in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Calgary.

The last one came on an empty-netter, but hey, they all count the same. Filppula's found the scoresheet in three straight games, building on what's been a surprisingly effective season -- with 21 points in 29 contests, he's at easily his best scoring pace since 2013-14.

Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Tallies team's lone goal in loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Filppula lit the lamp and picked up two PIM during Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Filppula wasn't having the shutout, especially with the Lightning potting three goals a game. The 32-year-old scored with less than two minutes to go in the third period, his fifth tally of the season. He's reached the box score in six of the last eight and remains the top-scoring center on the Lightning with 16 points in 23 games.
