Point has 25 goals, 64 points and a plus-25 rating in 66 games this season. After exploding for 92 points last year, Point's 64 points this season would be the lowest since his 2016-17 rookie showing. The 24-year-old forward's current plus-28 rating would be a new career best, though. Point racked up 35 power-play points last year but has just 13 with the man advantage in 2019-20. He has a chance to reach the 70-point mark if the NHL finishes the current campaign.
Point scored two goals, one on the power play, in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Red Wings. While he sparked the Bolts' offense during regulation, Point failed to beat Jonathan Bernier on his shootout attempt. Point has an impressive seven goals and 19 points through 17 games since the beginning of February, and Sunday's performance pushed him up to the 25-goal plateau for the third straight season.
Point nabbed an assist in a 5-3 victory over Boston on Saturday. Point is hovering around the point-per-game pace (62 in 64). His 92 points last season may end up as an outlier, given the Bolts' change to a more defensive approach. But even if that's the case, there's still growth in Point's game, especially at even strength. Last year, he delivered a lot more on the power play (35 of his 92 points). This season, Point has 62 points overall, but just 12 on the power play.
Point scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Chicago. Point is over his recent illness and right back on the scoreboard. He is now at the official point-per-game pace (60 in 60), but he's a far cry from his 92-point brilliance of last season. Point remains a solid play, but his pace remains disappointing because of his draft position.
As expected, Point (illness) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports. Point missed Thursday's loss to Vegas due to an illness, but he'll slot right back into a featured role Saturday, skating on Tampa Bay's top line and first power-play unit against the Coyotes. The 23-year-old forward has racked up 21 goals and 57 points in 57 games this campaign.
