Lightning's Alex Killorn: Set to make preseason debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn will be in the lineup for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Hurricanes, Ryan Kolakowski of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

Killorn played through a minor tear in his right MCL during the Lightning's brief postseason run last year, but he didn't require offseason surgery and appears to be back to 100 percent as Tampa Bay's preseason schedule gets underway. The 30-year-old vet, who notched 18 goals and 40 points while posting a plus-22 rating in 82 games last campaign, will occupy a bottom-six role while at even strength in 2019-20, but he should also see time on the Lightning's second man-advantage unit.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Won't need surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn won't require surgery to repair a minor tear in his right MCL, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

The fact that Killorn is able to avoid surgery means he should be up and ready to go when training camp kicks off in the fall. The winger managed just one assist, six PIM and three shots in four playoff games versus the Blue Jackets, a far cry from the 40-point campaign he put together in the regular season. The 29-year-old has reached the 40-point mark four times in his career and should be capable of doing so again in 2019-20.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Ready for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn (undisclosed) will play in Tuesday's Game 4 versus the Blue Jackets, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Killorn lit the lamp in Game 1, but he has struggled since with zero shots on net over the past two contests and two PIM in each outing. The 29-year-old will need a cleaner performance, as the Lightning can ill-afford to spend much time on the penalty kill in this elimination game. He will work on a bottom-six line with Yanni Gourde and Ryan Callahan.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Officially game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn (undisclosed) is officially considered a game-time decision against the Blue Jackets on Tuesday.

Indications from the game-day skate have Killorn slotting into a bottom-six role, but coach Jon Cooper labeled the center a game-time call heading into Tuesday's tilt. If the Nova Scotia native doesn't suit up, Ryan Callahan figures to take his spot in the lineup.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn (undisclosed) will be in the lineup for Tuesday's must-win Game 4 against Columbus, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

It appeared as though Killorn would likely miss Tuesday's contest after exiting Monday's 3-1 loss to the Blue Jackets in the third period with an undisclosed injury, but he's evidently going to tough it out to try and help his team stave off elimination. The 29-year-old is expected to skate with Ryan Callahan and Yanni Gourde on Tampa Bay's fourth line during Game 4, and should also see time on the man advantage as a member of the Lightning's second power-play unit.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Status uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn is dealing with an undisclosed injury that could cause him to miss Game 4 versus Columbus on Tuesday, Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official website reports.

Killorn failed to put a shot on net in his previous two games and, unsurprisingly, didn't pick up a point in either contest. Killorn reached the 40-point mark for the second straight season and fourth time in his career this year. If the 29-year-old is unable to give it a go, Ryan Callahan figures to remain in the lineup while Nikita Kucherov returns from his suspension.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Steady Eddie on score sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn netted his 17th goal of the season Saturday in a 4-3 loss to the Blues.

The goal puts him one point from his fourth 40-point season. Killorn is a sturdy, workman-like winger who delivers depth production. Nothing more, nothing less.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Fine time for personal record
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn picked up a hat trick Saturday in a 6-3 win over the Capitals.

Killorn had gone 10 games without a snipe, so getting his first career hattie was extra special. He had six shots on net, three hits, and was plus-2. Killorn is closing in on his fourth 40-point season in his last six (he has 37 points). He brings value to deep formats.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Secondary scoring continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn delivered two assists and finished plus-3 in Saturday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.

Killorn has been delivering occasional offence for the Bolts and the trend continues. His 33 points (13 goals, 20 assists) in 66 games make him a depth play at best.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Breaks goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn notched his 12th goal of the season and first since Jan. 19 against the Stars on Thursday, also adding an assist in a 6-0 win.

Killorn finished the night with a plus-2 rating and also spent two minutes in the sin bin, giving him stats that fit into many different fantasy categories. His 2018-19 season falls right in line with what he's done in every campaign since he began playing full NHL seasons in 2013-14 -- he's consistently been finishing in the high 30s to the low 40s for points. Killorn's seen a slight dip in ice time compared to the past few seasons, but the Lightning remain potent enough offensively that it shouldn't drastically impact his output.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Two points in last seven games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn has two assists in his last seven games.

Both of the helpers came in the same game. Killorn is what he is -- a hard-working, do-anything winger who battles his way to about 35-40 points each year. Last year's 47 was clearly the outlier. Killorn is a coach's dream, but valuable only in extremely deep formats.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Picks up point in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn notched an assist and had four shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

It was the winger's second straight game with a point. However, since the start of the new year, Killorn has just four points in 10 games, so his fantasy prospects still aren't all that appealing.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Nets first goal in 11 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn scored his first goal in 11 games in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Sharks.

He had two assists in that span, but that doesn't make him fantasy worthy. Keep Killorn on the wire.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Pots 5-on-5 goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn recorded an even-strength goal in Thursday's 5-4 shootout win over the Flames.

Killorn has held a man advantage role ever since his rookie campaign with Tampa in 2012-13. However, all but four of his points this season have taken place in 5-on-5 situations. Killorn's line defense is superb and he's clearly benefited from contributing to a team scoring more than any other at 4.03 goals per game -- just look at his plus-12 rating -- but that only goes so far in the fantasy realm.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: As average as they come
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Sabres.

Killorn is a steady top-nine NHL performer. His 13 points in 26 games are consistent with his offensive performance in every season except the last one. Consider Killorn's 47 points last year as an exception and count on him for 38-40 points. Unfortunately, there are a lot of guys just like him and their fantasy games all look the same. One word: interchangeable.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Takes step forward in defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn had the primary assist on a pair of goals Saturday, but it was not enough in a 6-4 loss to Ottawa.

Killorn is better than what he has shown this year, but the numbers can't be ignored. Seven points in 17 games is simply not getting it done, especially considering he hadn't found the net since Oct. 18. That said, this showing was solid. If he's on your bench, stash him until he shows that his performance was no fluke; he could turn into a bargain if his price continues to plummet.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Lowest point pace of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn's minus-3 outing Saturday against the Coyotes gives him three points (two goals, one assist) and a minus-5 rating in 10 games so far.

Killorn is extremely versatile but has been deployed in a more defensive role than in the past. He delivered a career-best 47 points last season but is on pace to deliver his lowest point total ever. Killorn is wire material at this point.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Delivers empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn registered an empty-net goal in Thursday's 3-1 home win over the Red Wings.

Killorn has collected two goals through the first five regular-season games. He's a smart player capable of catching fire on short notice, especially with consideration to his role on the No. 1 power play, but the Nova Scotian has only set 11 shots on goal to cap his fantasy upside.

October 11, 2018 01:12 PM
Lightning's Alex Killorn: Great fit on third line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn has found a fit on the Lightning's third line with rookies Mathieu Joseph and Anthony Cirelli.

This line in the only one that isn't being shuffled after the team's first game. The collective speed, intelligence and two-way acumen in that trio is through the roof. Killorn's veteran presence on that line will help the other two shine as they torment the opposition. He should get his fair share of points for those of you in deep leagues, especially if Cirelli blossoms into a Calder contender.

Lightning's Alex Killorn: Anticlimactic playoff run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Killorn finished the 2018 playoffs with five goals, two assists and a plus-4 rating through 17 games.

Tampa Bay's third-round (77th overall) draft selection from 2007 was a nightmare for the Devils in the opening round of the playoffs, as Killorn produced five points through the first three games of that series, but he was largely held in check by the Bruins and Capitals, respectively, considering he only had two points over 12 games the rest of the way. Still, the 28-year-old has four years remaining on his contract with the Bolts and that should afford him plenty of chances to avenge for his uninspiring finish to the 2017-18 campaign.
