  • Cirelli posted an assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks. Cirelli had the secondary helper on Alex Killorn's goal in the second period, which gave the Lightning a 2-0 lead. Through the first two games of the year, Cirelli has three points, seven shots on net and a plus-3 rating. The 23-year-old center has good chemistry with Killorn and Tyler Johnson, who will likely comprise the Lightning's second line this year.

  • Cirelli finished with a goal, an assist, four shots and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Blackhawks. Cirelli's one of the league's best two-way forwards, and his versatile skill set was on full display in this one. The highlight of his night was a first-period deflection that left goaltender Malcolm Subban with no chance on a puck that was originally on track to miss the net. Cirelli scored 44 points in 68 games last season but could easily improve his per-game scoring pace in 2021 while centering Tampa Bay's second line and No. 2 power-play unit.

  • Cirelli signed a three-year, $14.4 million contract with the Lightning on Thursday. Cirelli has grown into a fantastic two-way player for Tampa Bay over the past two campaigns, posting 35 goals, 48 assists and a plus-53 rating in 150 games while playing an instrumental role on the Lightning's penalty-killing unit. He's expected to center the Bolts' second line in 2020-21 and should only continue to improve from an offensive standpoint, making him worth a look in the later rounds of fantasy drafts as a bench option.

  • Cirelli remains unsigned and the Lightning are about $2 million over the $81.5 million salary cap heading into the 2020-21 season. The Bolts need to move a couple players to get cap compliance and Cirelli, their number two pivot, under contract. He's one of the team's most important players and is developing a reputation as a Patrice Bergeron in the making. Camp will open just after New Year's so the clock is ticking on negotiations.

  • Cirelli produced an assist and a game-high 10 hits in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars in Game 4. Cirelli picked up the secondary helper on Alex Killorn's third-period tally. Outside of that one contribution on the scoresheet, Cirelli was a physical force. His 10 hits were three more than Blake Coleman's second-place total for the game. Through 23 outings, Cirelli has produced three goals, six assists, 91 hits and a minus-4 rating.
