Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Rare big game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Scores goal in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (arm) returned to the lineup and scored a goal on his lone shot while contributing five hits in a 3-2 win over Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

The rugged fourth-liner deflected a Ryan McDonagh shot seven minutes into the third period to pull the Lightning even at 2-2.

Lightning's Cedric Paquette: Trending toward return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paquette (arm) could be ready to make his season debut Wednesday against the Penguins, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Paquette has yet to play this year due to an arm injury, but he was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, indicating he may be ready to return against Pittsburgh. The oft-injured forward is a solid bottom-sixer, but he's only totaled 28 points in 136 games over the past two campaigns and won't be a viable fantasy option in 2019-20.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
