Top Nikita Kucherov News

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Dealt with knee problem

    Kucherov was hampered by a meniscus injury in the postseason but was able to play through it, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports Tuesday.

    After getting hurt in Game 3, Kucherov managed one goal on 10 shots while averaging 21:55 of ice time in the final three games of the Stanley Cup Final. During the regular season, the Russian winger was limited to just 47 appearances, which saw him post his lowest goal total since his rookie campaign back in 2013-14. If he can stay healthy, Kucherov should be capable of pushing for the 40-goal mark next year.

  • Lightning's Nikita Kucherov: Set to play Wednesday

    Kucherov (undisclosed) is expected to suit up against the Avalanche for Game 4 on Wednesday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Kucherov appeared to suffer a lower-body injury in the third period of Game 3 but seems to be no worse for the wear. The Russian winger is currently mired in a five-game goal drought during which he has recorded just 12 shots. Still, despite the goal slump, Kucherov has continued to produce with five helpers over that same stretch. With Kucherov available, he should maintain his place on the first line and No. 1 power-play unit.
