  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Reaches 20-assist mark

    Sergachev registered two assists, two shots on net and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 7-1 win over the Sharks.

    Sergachev helped out on goals by Mathieu Joseph and Ross Colton in the blowout win. This allowed Sergachev to reach the 20-assist mark for the fifth straight season. The 23-year-old blueliner is at 22 points, 60 shots on net, 56 hits, 56 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating in 39 contests. He's likely to continue playing in a top-four role as long as Erik Cernak (lower body) and Jan Rutta (undisclosed) remain sidelined.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Garners assist

    Sergachev posted an assist, three shots on goal and five hits in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Ducks.

    Sergachev set up Ross Colton for a one-timer in the third period, which was all the Lightning could put past John Gibson. The 23-year-old Sergachev has collected six assists through nine games in January. The Russian blueliner has 20 points, 58 shots on net, 56 hits, 55 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 38 contests overall. He's got a chance to match his career-best 40-point output from 2017-18 if he can see just a slight uptick in his scoring pace.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Notches assist in win

    Sergachev logged an assist, four hits, three blocked shots and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Kings.

    Sergachev helped out on Mathieu Joseph's goal in the third period, which stood as the game-winner. The 23-year-old Sergachev has managed five assists in eight January games. For the season, the Russian blueliner is at 19 points, 55 shots on net, 54 blocks, 51 hits and 18 PIM through 37 contests. He played a season-high 27:38 of ice time as the Lightning only had four healthy defensemen available.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Steady growth in game

    Sergachev picked up two assists in a 5-2 loss to Boston on Saturday.

    Sergachev has 17 points, including 15 assists, in 33 games this season, and all but four of those points have come on the power play.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Clears protocols

    Sergachev cleared COVID-19 protocols and practiced Friday, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

    Sergachev returns after entering protocols Sunday. The defenseman, who has two goals and 12 assists this season, should fill his usual second-pairing role Friday against the Rangers.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Lands on COVID-19 list

    Sergachev landed in the COVID-19 protocols Sunday, according to Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Sergachev is one of four Tampa Bay players that landed on the COVID-19 list, with the others being center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and goaltenders Andrei Vasilevskiy and Brian Elliott, as well as assistant coach Rob Zettler. Sergachev only has two goals, but he has delivered 12 assists on the season, so his presence on the offensive side of the puck will be missed while he's sidelined.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Ends point drought with helper

    Sergachev recorded an assist and two blocked shots in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Sergachev set up Gabriel Fortier's first NHL goal in the first period. The assist snapped a season-worst six-game point drought for Sergachev. Despite the skid, he's been solid with 14 points, 41 shots on net, 40 blocks, 39 hits and a plus-1 rating through 28 contests. While he doesn't stand out in any one area, the 23-year-old's well-rounded production is useful in fantasy.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Two-way game really growing

    Sergachev has gone six games without a point.

    It may be the longest point drought of his season, but his overall pace is on par with his 40-point rookie season. And Sergachev has really grown his all-round game. He has six shots, eight hits and nine blocks over this span. It's hard to remember some days that Sergachev is just 23. His fantasy future is strong, but it will likely continue to grow slowly given the presence of Victor Hedman on the Bolts' blue line.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Seven assists in last eight games

    Sergachev delivered two assists in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Bruins.

    He fed Taylor Raddysh for a shortie in the first and then dished to Steven Stamkos on a two-on-one in OT for the winner. Sergachev hasn't scored a goal since Oct. 26, but has 13 points, including 11 assists, in just 21 games. And seven of those helpers have come in his last eight games. Sergachev is very quietly pushing toward a career scoring mark.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Dishes pair of assists

    Sergachev recorded two assists, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Flyers.

    Sergachev helped out on goals by Zach Bogosian and Corey Perry in the contest. The 23-year-old Sergachev has picked up the pace a bit lately with four helpers in the last three games after he endured a five-game point drought around a two-match suspension. The Russian blueliner has 10 points, 27 shots on net, 22 hits, 18 blocked shots and a minus-3 rating in 16 appearances overall. He's often listed on the third pairing, but his usage, including a power-play role, suggests he's viewed more as a top-four option.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Eligible to return

    Sergachev has served his two-game suspension and is available for Saturday's clash with the Panthers.

    In four games prior to his suspension, Sergachev registered one goal, two assists and nine shots while averaging 21:56 of ice time. The blueliner's return to the ice is well-timed for the Bolts after Erik Cernak (upper body) is expected to miss significant time following Tuesday's matchup with Carolina.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Hearing Friday

    Sergachev has a hearing Friday to determine whether he'll be suspended for an illegal check to Mitch Marner's head during Thursday's game against Toronto.

    The illegal hit resulted in a minor penalty. It seems likely Sergachev will be assessed a suspension of a few games.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Hit with two-game suspension

    Sergachev has been suspended for two games for an illegal check to the head on Toronto's Mitch Marner during Thursday's loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Sergachev will miss Saturday's game against Ottawa and Tuesday's game versus Carolina before being eligible to return Nov. 13 against Florida. With Sergachev on the shelf, look for Andrej Sustr to jump into the lineup against the Senators.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: May face supplementary discipline

    Sergachev may face supplemental discipline after an ugly hit to Mitch Marner's head in Thursday's 2-1 overtime loss to Toronto.

    Sergachev tried to intercept Marner after he stole the puck from Victor Hedman and blindsided the Leafs winger with an elbow to the jaw. Luckily, Marner appeared unhurt and Sergachev was assessed a minor penalty, but the league will determine if additional discipline is necessary.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Two points in win

    Sergachev scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Penguins.

    The blueliner rounded out his line with three shots, two blocked shots, two PIM, one hit and a plus-3 rating. Sergachev has been very productive in the early going with two goals and five points through seven games, including two power-play helpers, but the 23-year-old's role and track record suggest it will be tough for him to maintain that pace.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Delivers two power-play helpers

    Sergachev recorded two power-play assists, three shots on goal, two blocked shots, two PIM and a minus-3 rating in Thursday's 7-6 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    It wasn't a standout defensive performance for Sergachev, but he made up for it by helping out on both of Steven Stamkos' second-period tallies. The 23-year-old Sergachev has struggled a bit in his own zone this year with a minus-7 rating through two games. He's still likely to be a solid depth defenseman in fantasy, as he's reached the 30-point mark in each of his four full NHL campaigns.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Focus on offensive growth this year

    Sergachev concentrated on his offensive game this offseason and is focused on scoring more this season, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

    "I didn't score a lot of goals last year," he said. "So I was working on my shot. ... That's one area I was trying to work on - scores and angles - as much as possible to help the team win." Sergachev scored just four goals last season after averaging eight over his first three full seasons, and his shooting percentage was an abysmal 3.7 percent. He remains behind Victor Hedman for power-play time, but Sergachev's strong foundation of two-way play already has him poised for further growth in his game.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Team high in blocks

    Sergachev blocked five shots and provided four hits in 24:29 of ice-time in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Hurricanes.

    The Bolts got lots of help from stellar play from Andrei Vasilevskiy in this series-clinching game, but the same could be said about Sergachev, who put his body on the line to secure the victory. The 22-year-old has provided just two points in this postseason but has racked up 22 blocks and 28 hits in 11 games.

  • Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Registers assist

    Sergachev posted an assist, two shots on goal, a pair of hits and two PIM in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Panthers in Game 6.

    Sergachev cleared the puck in the first period, and Tyler Johnson rushed down the ice to negate icing before setting up Patrick Maroon for the goal. The assist was Sergachev's second in six games in the series. The Russian blueliner added 17 hits, 11 blocked shots, six PIM and 10 shots on net.
