Verhaeghe has two points, both goals, in his last 15 games. Verhaeghe had a dominant season in the AHL last year -- he scored 34 goals and had 82 points in 76 games. But he's toiling on the fourth line in Tampa Bay and opportunities are few and far between. Verhaeghe has the skill to be fantasy-relevant, but that won't happen until he moves up the lineup.
Verhaeghe scored a goal and added two hits in Friday's 7-1 win over the Jets. Verhaeghe struck for the Lightning's fifth goal, which would end Connor Hellebuyck's outing. The 24-year-old forward had gone five games without a point after a hat trick on Jan. 7. Verhaeghe has a decent six goals and four assists with 43 shots in 35 contests in a bottom-six role this season.
Verhaeghe scored three goals -- one short-handed, one on the power play and one at even strength -- in Tuesday's 9-2 win over the Canucks. The shortie in the third period may have been offside, but it also made the score 8-2 and a replay probably seemed like a waste of time for everyone involved. Verhaeghe only had two goals and six points through his first 28 NHL games, so he's not likely to repeat this performance any time soon, but the 24-year-old rookie does have a modest three-game point streak going and could work his way off the fourth line with his recent efforts.
Verhaeghe scored a goal in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Senators. It was his first point in 10 games. Verhaeghe is a depth forward who gets less than 10 minutes of ice time per game. There's no fantasy value in that.
Verhaeghe scored a goal and added two assists in Saturday's 7-1 win over San Jose. It was Verhaeghe's first NHL goal. He broke in on the left wing and just wired a wrister top shelf over Aaron Dell's glove-side shoulder. His production isn't enough to make him fantasy worthy, but it sure was a memorable night for Verhaeghe.
