  • Gourde's 64-point regular season was fueled by an 18.4 percent shooting percentage, something that may be unsustainable in future seasons. It's hard to know what will come for this productive rookie -- not even sniper Nikita Kucherov has a shooting rate that high. Gourde is a talented forward, but we may see his goal scoring slip back a little if opposing teams focus on him more in future seasons. And at 26, Gourde's offensive peak may be short and sweet. He's certainly valuable, especially in single-year formats, but keeper leaguers -- especially those in auction formats -- may need to be cautious about how big an investment they are prepared to risk. A short contract may be the prudent course.

  • Gourde registered a power-play goal as the Lightning topped the Bruins 4-2 in Game 2 to even the series Monday. One of the biggest breakout performers from the regular season with 64 points (25 goals, 39 assists) in 82 games, Gourde opened the scoring by anticipating a cross-ice helper from Brayden Point and catching Boston goalie Tuukka Rask out of position. While he's only 5-foot-9, 167 pounds, Gourde is a trailblazer with a scorer's touch, and it appears that he's woken up after etching the scoresheet just once in five games against the Devils in the conference quarterfinals.

  • Gourde finished with a power-play goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 Game 1 win over New Jersey. Gourde's second-period tally made it 3-0 at the time, but it morphed into the game-winner after the visitors managed to get two back prior to Tampa Bay pulling away. Those who picked the 26-year-old forward in playoff pools on the heels of a 64-point regular season are already getting rewarded for that decision.

  • Gourde's goal Friday night made him the Lightning's all-time rookie scoring leader. The goal was his 25th of the year and 64th point. Brad Richards had 62 points (2000-01) while Tyler Johnson put in 24 goals (2013-14). Gourde was undrafted and banished to the ECHL just five years ago, only to go into the Bolts' record books. The playoffs will be a test for him, but his star is certainly on the rise.

  • Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Joins 25-goal club
    By RotoWire Staff

    Gourde scored, added two assists and recorded a plus-5 rating during Friday's 7-5 win over Buffalo. Because of all the household names on the Lightning, Gourde's flown under the radar in plenty of fantasy circles. He shouldn't have. With Friday's multi-point showing, the 26-year-old rookie is now up to 25 goals and 39 assists for the campaign, and he's also provided sneaky help in the plus-minus (34) and PIM (50) columns.
