  • Lightning's Steven Stamkos: GM silences trade murmurs

    Stamkos will not be traded at the deadline, reports Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Stamkos is in the last year of his current contract, and he was frustrated before the start of the season that no extension had been offered. But Lightning general manager Julien BriseBois made it clear then that talks would resume this coming offseason once he had a chance to evaluate the entire roster. BriseBois still envisions Stamkos, who turns 34 in February, on the team beyond this campaign. Right now, the Bolts are fighting for a playoff spot, but Stamkos continues to prosper offensively and deliver strong fantasy value. He has 41 points, including 18 goals, in 41 games. The veteran forward has also accumulated 24 power-play points, and he continues to shoot a lot (250 projected shots).

  • Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Stays hot against Boston

    Stamkos scored an even-strength goal and added a power-play assist in Monday's 5-4 overtime win over the Bruins.

  • Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Power-play mystery machine

    Stamkos picked up two power-play points, with one goal and one assist, in 6-4 victory over the Oilers on Saturday.

    He got the primary apple on Nikita Kucherov's first period goal, and then flipped the table and wired a snap shot on a feed from Kucherov that tied the game 4-4 in the third. The goal was Stamkos' sixth of the season and his second power-play snipe. He has 18 points, including 10 on the man advantage, in 16 games this season. That's his best production on the power play in his career, but it's a pace that could slow as the season progresses. Games can mysteriously get tighter in the second half.

  • Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Two points in Thursday's loss

    Stamkos got credit for a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Both Lightning tallies were generated by plenty of puck luck, and both came on Stamkos passes that deflected off the skates of Columbus players -- one straight into the back of the net, and the other caroming straight to Conor Sheary at the side of the cage. Regardless of how he got onto the scoresheet, Stamkos has three multi-point performances in the season's first eight games and has amassed four goals and 10 points.
