  • Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Helps out twice in road win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/17) Filppula picked up a pair of assists with a plus-2 and a hit in Tuesday's 5-2 win against the Blackhawks.

    Filppula has picked up the pace in January with a goal and eight points over his past eight games, improving his stock. His name has been bandied about in trade rumors, and a move to a contender would be an improvement in fantasy value just because of an increase in plus-minus.

    Lightning's Valtteri Filppula: Will play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/28/16) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/16) 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 | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/15/16) 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.

  • April 3, 2015: Bolts' Filppula Still Mired In Slump
    Filppula gathered a power-play assist in Thursday's loss to the Senators.Points have been extremely scarce for Filppula of late, as the forward has collected a goal and three assists since the beginning of March. A drop in ice time hasn't accompanied the drop in productivity just yet, but it's tough to justify keeping him active until he starts scoring with more regularity.
