Top Brayden Point News

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Six-game, eight-point streak

    Point scored a power-play goal Saturday in a 3-1 victory over Dallas.

    He has scored eight points (five goals, three assists) during a six-game point streak. Point found twine Saturday from the low slot on the power play, and he's put up a goal in five of the six games of the streak. Point has 15 goals on the season and is tied with Ondrej Palat for second on the Bolts' goal list, behind only Steven Stamkos who has 18. But Point's productivity has been elite. He's been restricted to 26 games, 12 fewer than Palat and 13 less than Stamkos. There's a strong chance that Point will be the team's top-goal guy by season's end.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Three points against Columbus

    Point scored an even-strength goal and added two assists, one on the power play, in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Point set up Ross Colton's game-tying goal at 17:31 of the second period.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: No rust in return

    Point (upper body) scored two goals and an assist while adding six shots and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Canadiens.

    Point wasted little time before making an impact in his first action since Nov. 20, tying the score at a goal apiece 11:38 into the first period before giving the Lightning the lead just 2:32 later with his second goal of the game. His most important point of the night was Point's third-period helper on Corey Perry's goal, which tied the score at four with 20 seconds remaining in regulation. Point has nine goals and 16 points in 17 games played this season, so he should be an automatic activation now that he's back to full health.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Ready to rock

    Point (upper body) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Montreal, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Point has been sidelined since Nov. 20 with an upper-body injury, but he isn't expected to be eased in against the Canadiens, as he's expected to skate on Tampa Bay's second line and top power-play unit versus Montreal. The 25-year-old center picked up seven goals and 13 points in 16 games before suffering his upper-body injury.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Might play Tuesday

    Point (upper body) could be an option versus Montreal on Tuesday, per Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    The fact that Point was back on the No. 1 power-play at practice, per Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site, is a good indication the center will return to action sooner rather than later. Still, the Lightning will need to activate the 25-year-old Calgary native off injured reserve in order to reinsert him into the lineup. Point racked up seven goals and six assists in the first 16 games of the season before suffering his upper-body injury and will no doubt be eager to pick up where he left off.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Targeting late December return

    Point (upper body) will look to make his return to action closer to New Year's Eve, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

    Point -- who was on the ice for Monday's practice session -- has already missed the club's last 11 contests and now figures to be out for at least another six. The 25-year-old Calgary native has racked up 13 points in 16 games this year.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Lands on IR

    Point (upper body) has been designated for injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

    With Point expected to miss at least a month, his placement on injured reserve certainly shouldn't come as a surprise. In his stead, Steven Stamkos will shift to the center position on the first line while Anthony Cirelli anchors the second trio. Once cleared to play, Point has racked up 13 points in 16 games this year.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Out at least a month

    Point (upper body) is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks.

    Point's current timeline would hold him out until around Christmas at the earliest. The 25-year-old had seven goals and 13 points through 16 games before suffering his injury. Steven Stamkos and Anthony Cirelli will continue to handle the top-six center duties in his absence.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Week-to-week

    Point (upper body) is out indefinitely and is week-to-week, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Point suffered the injury Saturday against the Devils, and it appears it's serious enough to keep him out for multiple games. He'll miss contests Tuesday against the Flyers and Friday versus Seattle, at a minimum, but it's unclear after that how long the 25-year-old might need to get back to game action.

    Point isn't playing Sunday against Minnesota due to an upper-body injury, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Point hurt himself when he crashed hard into the boards Saturday against New Jersey. The 25-year-old should be considered day-to-day until further notice, and Alex Barre-Boulet figures to slot into the lineup for however long Point is sidelined.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Three helpers in win

    Point notched three assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Senators.

    The 25-year-old had a helper in every period. It was Point's first multi-point performance of the season, but he's been a consistent contributor on the top line and No. 1 power-play unit for the Bolts, with four goals and nine points through 11 games.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Sends game into OT

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Provides assist

    Point recorded an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 7-6 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    Point was quiet for much of the game, but he earned the secondary helper on Ondrej Palat's overtime tally. The assist was Point's first scoring contribution in two games. He's been a little quiet after signing an eight-year extension with the Lightning in July, but a top-line role in a powerful offense should serve the 25-year-old center well as the year goes on.
