Goodrow (hand) signed a six-year, $21.85 million contract with the Rangers on Thursday, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Goodrow is coming off his second straight season in which he reached the 20-point mark along with back-to-back Stanley Cup championships. The winger's deal will tie him to New York through the age of 34 and seems a steep price to pay for a player that has never scored 10 goals in a season.
The Lightning traded Goodrow (hand) to the Rangers on Saturday in exchange for a 2022 seventh-round draft pick.
Goodrow is a pending unrestricted free agent, so the Rangers are clearly planning on signing him to a new contract before free agency opens July 28. The 28-year-old winger was a solid contributor for Tampa Bay in 2020-21, picking up six goals and 20 points while posting a plus-16 rating through 55 contests. He'll likely slot into a middle-six role with New York in 2021-22.
Tampa Bay general manager Julien BriseBois said Tuesday that Goodrow suffered a broken hand during the Stanley Cup playoffs, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.
Defenseman Ryan McDonagh also fractured his hand during Tampa Bay's run to its second straight Stanley Cup, but neither he nor Goodrow will be at any risk of missing the start of the 2021-22 season. Goodrow, who tallied six goals and 14 assists across 55 games in his first full season in Tampa Bay, is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Goodrow scored a goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to Montreal in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. He was also credited with five hits.
With the lamp-lighter, Goodrow is officially on a four-game point streak after eking out just a lone assist in his previous 11 contests. He'll look to stay hot in Tampa's second crack at taking home the Cup in Game 5 on Wednesday.
Goodrow notched an assist and four hits in Friday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens in Game 3.
The 28-year-old forward had just two points through his first 13 games this postseason, but he's now notched an assist in three straight outings in the Stanley Cup Finals. Goodrow has added 58 hits, 24 PIM, 24 shots on net and a plus-4 rating while playing on the Lightning's third line. His trio with Blake Coleman and Yanni Gourde was actually the most utilized forward unit in Friday's win.
Goodrow scored a goal on two shots and added seven hits in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Hurricanes in Game 1.
Goodrow broke a 1-1 tie with a shot from below the left-wing circle that bounced off of Hurricanes goalie Alex Nedeljkovic's pads and into the net. That tally was the game-winning goal Sunday, which gave the Lightning a 1-0 series lead in the second round. Goodrow has produced 12 hits and five shots on net through two games since he returned from an upper-body injury.
Goodrow (upper body) posted a team-leading five hits and added three shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Panthers in Game 6.
Goodrow had missed the last six games with the injury, but he was a physical force in his return. He had an assist in four straight games prior to his absence. The 28-year-old posted 20 points, 111 hits and 52 PIM in 55 regular-season contests, and he should be able to make an impact from a third-line role in the playoffs.
Goodrow (upper body) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's Game 6 against Florida, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.
Goodrow returned to skating with the team this week, and he was originally slated to sit out Game 6. The 28-year-old will make his return to the lineup for the first time since May 8, as he recorded six goals and 20 points across 55 games during the regular season. It's unclear how much ice time Goodrow will receive for Game 6, as he'll start the contest on the fourth line.
Goodrow (upper body) has continued to skate but he still isn't ready to return to game action, NHL.com's Dan Rosen reports.
Goodrow has yet to play this postseason due to an upper-body injury, and at this point it seems unlikely that he'll be ready to return during the Lightning's first-round series, even if it extends to a Game 7. The 28-year-old winger picked up six goals and 20 points through 55 contests during the regular season.
Goodrow (upper body) won't play in Monday's Game 5 against the Panthers, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Goodrow has ramped up his participation in team activities, but the team isn't quite ready to put him back on game ice, especially in what has been a physical series. He's been sidelined since May 8 but had a four-game point streak rolling prior to going down.
Goodrow (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's Game 4 versus Florida, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.
Goodrow is expected to be back at some point during the playoffs, but he remains without a specific timetable for his return. Another update on his status should surface once he's cleared to play.
Goodrow (upper body) will be out for at least another week. Coach Jon Cooper said Saturday that the Lightning are "anticipating getting him back" but are "not sure exactly when yet," Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
If Goodrow's able to return in exactly one week, he'd be available for Game 4 of the first round against Florida. Should the Lightning put together another deep playoff run, the middle-six forward and penalty-killing specialist will likely be back and contributing at some point.
Goodrow is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury.
With only Monday's game against the Panthers remaining in the regular season, it appears that Goodrow's 2020-21 campaign is finished. The 28-year-old winger has six goals, 20 points and a plus-16 rating in 55 games this season. It's unclear if he'll be able to return at some point during the postseason.
Goodrow managed an assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Blackhawks.
Goodrow helped out on a Blake Coleman tally in the second period. The 28-year-old Goodrow is up to 16 points, 95 hits, 65 shots on goal, 43 PIM and a plus-12 rating through 49 appearances. He has often worked in a middle-six role this year, and his physicality is a positive for fantasy managers in deeper formats.
Goodrow scored a goal and added two assists in a 6-4 victory over Columbus on Thursday.
That was a big monkey off Goodrow's back -- he had just three points in his previous 21 games before Thursday's outburst. He remains a hard-working bottom-six forward that's simply more valuable on the ice than in the fantasy arena. Goodrow has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in 40 games this season.
Goodrow picked up an assist in Sunday's 5-3 win over Florida.
It was just his second assist in his last 13 games, but at least he delivered 10 PIM in his last three. Goodrow has just five goals and six assists in 31 games.
Goodrow deposited an empty-net goal in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Hurricanes.
Goodrow is performing admirably on the third line, as he's generated four goals on a career-best shooting percentage (17.4). Additionally, he's tacked on four helpers to complement a plus-8 rating through 17 contests. Goodrow does not receive power-play minutes, but he's still a decent option if you need to save virtual dollars for other players in DFS contests.
Goodrow scored twice on three shots and went plus-2 in Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.
Goodrow gave the Lightning a lead at 17:29 of the second period, then doubled up with his empty-netter in the third. The 27-year-old has performed decently in a third-line role this year, notching six points, 12 shots on goal, 11 hits and a plus-6 rating through nine appearances.
Goodrow had two assists, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.
Goodrow set up both of his linemates in the contest, feeding Blake Coleman for the third goal in the second period as well as Yanni Gourde for an insurance tally in the third. While they won't always get on the scoresheet, Goodrow and the Lightning's third line are all solid depth scorers in their own right. In 70 games split between the Lightning and the Sharks last year, Goodrow had 26 points, 162 hits and 97 PIM.
