  • Lightning's Ondrej Palat: Ruled out Thursday

    Palat (undisclosed) will not participate in Thursday's contest against Vancouver, per Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com.

    Palat has averaged 17:21 of ice time -- 2:47 during the power-play -- and recorded 15 goals and 15 assists this season. The 30-year-old exited the contest against Buffalo on Tuesday before the third period with an undisclosed injury. His potential participation in Saturday's game with Dallas will be a game-time decision. Until he returns, Alex Killorn is likely to see an expanded role.

  • Lightning's Ondrej Palat: Absent in third period Tuesday

    Palat (undisclosed) did not play in the third period Tuesday, and teammate Steven Stamkos indicated the winger has been dealing with an undisclosed injury, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Palat scored a goal on two shots against the Sabres prior to his exit. Given the lopsided score in the Lightning's favor and the opponent, it's possible Palat was held out as a precaution. Fantasy managers will still want to double-check his status going into Thursday's game against the Canucks. The Czech winger has 15 tallies and 30 points in 38 appearances this season.

  • Lightning's Ondrej Palat: First multi-pointer in month-plus

    Palat had two goals and an assist in Thursday's 5-3 win over Toronto.

    Palat put the Bolts up 3-2 in the second when he redirected a Steven Stamkos pass in the slot that hit a Leaf stick and went in. His second went into the empty net. Thursday's showing was Palat's first multi-point effort since Nov. 6, a span of 15 games. If he could stay healthy, he'd be on pace for a mid-50s point total. Unfortunately, Palat has only played more than 75 games once in his career and hasn't played that many in a season since 2016-17.

  • Lightning's Ondrej Palat: Registers helper

    Palat picked up an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Friday's 3-0 win over the Kraken.

    Palat set up Steven Stamkos for an insurance tally in the third period. The 30-year-old Palat has no goals in his last eight games, but he's salvaged some value with four helpers in that span. The winger is up to 12 points, 39 shots, 36 hits, eight PIM and a plus-1 rating in 19 contests overall. The biggest difference from last year has been power-play production -- Palat had 20 of his 46 points with the man advantage last year, but he's collected just one assist in that situation through nearly a quarter of 2021-22.

  • Lightning's Ondrej Palat: Made available to Seattle

    Palat was left off Tampa Bay's protected-player list ahead of Wednesday's Expansion Draft.

    It's no secret that there's simply too many cooks in the kitchen with the Lightning, as they were only able to protect four forwards (Anthony Cirelli, Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point, Steven Stamkos) due to their needs on defense. Palat has spent his entire nine-year career in Tampa as an excellent two-way forward with some scoring flash, most recently finishing with 46 points in 55 games last season. With a year left on his deal that carries a $5.3 million cap hit, one has to assume Seattle is taking a long, hard look at the 30-year-old.
