  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Earns eight-year extension

    Cernak agreed to terms on an eight-year, $41.6 million deal with Tampa Bay on Wednesday. Cernak is one of three Bolts, including Anthony Cirelli and Mikhail Sergachev to receive eight-year extensions Wednesday. For his part, the 25-year-old Cernak isn't exactly a fantasy darling considering he has never reached the 20-point mark in his four NHL seasons. Still, the shutdown defender will be a key piece of the Bolts' blue line for the foreseeable future, even if he's not on most fantasy rosters.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Looks good to go

    Cernak (lower body) is expected to play in Friday's Game 5 versus the Avalanche, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Cernak has been trending toward playing despite not finishing Wednesday's Game 4 after a shot block. The 25-year-old will play in his usual defense-first position on the second pairing.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Expected to play

    When asked about Cernak's (lower body) status for Friday's Game 5 against Colorado, coach Jon Cooper said "He is feeling better. I am pretty confident he is going to play tonight," Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports. Cernak's status for Friday's contest will likely boil down to a game-time decision, but it sounds like he's closer to probable than questionable for Game 5. He's registered two points, 75 hits and 42 blocks through 21 contests this postseason.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Can't finish Game 4

    Cernak (lower body) didn't finish Game 4 versus the Avalanche on Wednesday, per Bally Sports Florida. Cernak blocked a shot from Nathan MacKinnon on a penalty kill in the second period. Cernak went to the locker room, but he was on the bench for the third period without logging a shift. The defenseman had an assist and 7:37 of ice time Wednesday, but his status is unclear heading into the Lightning's must-win Game 5 on Friday.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Goes top cheddar for winner

    Cernak scored the game-winning goal in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Panthers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Second Round. Cernak picked the top corner from the left face-off circle at 2:54 of the second period. Scoring is a rarity for the big defender, who is better known for shutdown defending and shorthanded play than offense. Cernak played 19:37 on Sunday, including 3:57 on the penalty kill, and delivered four hits, three blocked shots and two shots on goal.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Set to play Thursday

    Cernak (undisclosed) is slated to play in Game 2 versus the Panthers on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Cernak was forced to leave Game 1 due to his undisclosed injury after just 10:25 of ice time. Considering the blueliner has just one point in his last 13 contests, few fantasy players were likely impacted by his absence or his expected return for Game 2.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Can't finish contest

    Cernak (undisclosed) exited Tuesday's Game 1 versus the Panthers after blocking a shot, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports. Cernak was hurt in the second period and did not return for the third. The defenseman has played mostly a defensive role in the Lightning's top-four, so this would be a more noticeable absence on the ice than in fantasy if he misses time. Jan Rutta would likely stay in the lineup and Riley Nash could draw in at forward if Cernak isn't available for Thursday's Game 2.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Good to go

    Cernak (upper body) will play Thursday versus Columbus, source reports. Cernak exited Tuesday's win over the Blue Jackets after logging just 3:59 of ice time, but whatever forced him from that contest evidently wasn't overly serious. The 24-year-old defender is expected to slot into a top-pairing role for Thursday's rematch with Columbus.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: No mirage in sight

    Cernak has no points in his last 17 games. That span coincides with Cernak's Feb. 15 return from a lower-body injury. He's not known for his offense, but this span is desert-like. Cernak does have 47 hits in those 17 games, but limited one-category contributors just aren't roster worthy.

  • Lightning's Erik Cernak: Game-time decision
