Kunitz contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 drubbing of the Islanders.
Kunitz assisted on Andrej Sustr's goal to make it 2-0 and concluded the scoring with his fourth tally of the season in the third period. This was the first multi-point performance of the year for the 38-year-old winger, so fantasy owners should be in no rush to request his services.
Kunitz tallied an assist and one shot on goal against the Ducks on Sunday.
Things haven't gone swimmingly for Kunitz in his first year with the Lightning. He has five points in 18 games to go with just 15 shots on net. His minutes are down, he's not playing on the power play, and it seems like the veteran's best days are far behind him.
Kunitz saw just 8:08 in ice time Saturday against Florida.
It dropped from 10:47 in the opening game. Kunitz signed in Tampa for a shot at a middle-six role and a possible Cup run. At this rate, the 38-year-old winger will be hard pressed to dress every game. He does have three hits in two games.
Kunitz was part of all three of the Pens' Stanley Cup victories in the Sidney Crosby era and is the only active player with four titles to his name. The gritty winger has seen his role change during his time in Pittsburgh as he went from a top-line scoring threat to a third-line grinder but could get a top-six assignment with Tampa Bay. The 2016-17 season was the first time the veteran failed to break the 30-point mark since his time with the Atlanta Thrashers back in 2005-06 when he played in just two games. If he can secure a more prominent role with the Lightning, the Ferris State product should get back to being a productive fantasy option.
