Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Two helpers in shootout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde notched two assists in Sunday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Red Wings.

He's largely responsible for the Bolts even earning a point from this game, as he helped set up Tampa's final two goals in regulation to pull the club out of a 4-2 hole. Gourde still hasn't been able to consistently rekindle his scoring pace from two seasons ago, but he does have two goals and seven points in his last eight games.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Hits scoresheet in unorthodox way
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde dropped the gloves and fought the Bruins' Joakim Nordstrom on Tuesday night.

He went hard into Tuukka Rask in the second period in the hope of poking the puck loose, and Nordstrom didn't take kindly to it. Gourde has really struggled to find his offensive game this season. He has just 26 points (10 goals, 16 assists) in 66 games, compared to 48 last season and 64 the one before that. It's a challenge to activate him, but there may be a glimmer of hope. Gourde has six points, including four goals, in his last 10 games. It's not much, but it's something.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Can't get offense going
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde didn't post a point and recorded a minus-1 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights.

Gourde's pointless drought has now hit 11 games. He fired just 14 shots on net in that span and registered a minus-7 rating. After floating in and out of the top six to start the season, Gourde has been almost exclusively a bottom-six player since the calendar flipped to 2020.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Goals have dried up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde picked up an assist Saturday in a 5-3 win over Ottawa.

It snapped a seven-game point drought. Gourde is mired in a 19-game goal drought and has just 18 points in 40 games this season. Bench him if you haven't already.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Earns helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde picked up an assist in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Capitals.

Gourde remains bogged down in a 10-game goal drought during which he's tallied a mere two points. Despite the recent run of poor form, the winger remains on page to top the 40-point mark for a third consecutive season, though could miss the 20-goal threshold.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Makes most of limited ice time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a power-play goal and added two even-strength assists in a 9-3 win over the Rangers on Thursday night.

Gourde made the most of his 12:21 ice time. He has a four-game, seven-point scoring streak on the go and that includes a goal in each of those games. Gourde may never return to the height of his 64-point season in 2017-18, but he still has great fantasy value right now.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Another night, another game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde netted a goal and added an assist Saturday in a 5-3 win over Buffalo in the 2019 NHL Global Series in Stockholm.

The fourth line was especially good Saturday, with Patrick Maroon potting two snipes and Cedric Paquette setting up two. Gourde's fantasy value remains limited on the bottom line, but nights like this one show he's worthy of spot activation while hot. And he is -- Gourde has now delivered a goal in three straight games and game-winners in back-to-back contests.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Fires home game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored his third goal of the season in Friday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

The tally midway through the third period proved to be the game-winner, as the 27-year-old winger buried the rebound after a Patrick Maroon wraparound attempt. Gourde's spot on Tampa's fourth line has offered him limited fantasy upside so far this season, but he still has a solid six points through 14 games.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Tallies second goal of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Islanders.

It was just the second goal and fifth point of the season for Gourde. The 27-year-old scored 47 goals over the previous two seasons but is going to have to do some heavy-lifting if he's going to reach the 20-goal plateau for the third year in a row. He's failed to register a single shot on goal in five of his first 13 games, so leave him on the waiver wire for now.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Fantasy value depressed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored his first goal of the season in Saturdays's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche.

Gourde was the darling of the NHL when he broke in to the league in 2015-16. His 64 points that season were likely lightning in a bottle for this diminutive forward. He has just four points in eight games so far in 2019-20. Given his small stature and placement on a lower line, Gourde's fantasy value is likely to continue to be depressed.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Goal drought at 10 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde picked up an assist Thursday in a 4-3 shootout victory over Boston.

Gourde remains without a goal in seven regular-season games this season and 10 total, dating back into early April. But he does have three assists. Gourde may never recapture the glory of his 64-point rookie season. But he can still be fantasy relevant in deeper formats.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Sends out assist in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde recorded a power-play assist in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

Gourde had a secondary assist on Kevin Shattenkirk's power play score in the first period to mark his second helper in as many games. The Lightning's will remain powerful on the man advantage this year, so Gourde shouldn't have trouble matching or surpassing last year's 48-point mark as long as he stays on the power-play unit.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Sees ice time plummet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored one goal in four games against Columbus in Round 1.

He saw his ice time drop dramatically from Game 1 when he played 16:38. The next three games, Gourde skated 12:44, 10:10 and 11:06, respectively. And he went from three shots in Game 1 to two in the remaining three. The entire Bolts' team struggled against the big, aggressive forecheckers of the Blue Jackets, so it could just be that Gourde was just outmatched. But there is some concern with Gourde's role, especially after seeing his regular-season output drop from an incredible 64 points in 2017-18 to just 48 this year.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Piles on three points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored twice and added an assist in Monday's win over the Senators.

This was Gourde's first three-point game since October, as he now has 22 goals and 47 points through 77 games. With just three games remaining in the regular season, the 27-year-old will clearly fall short of the 64 points he recorded last campaign.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Two-game ban served
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde's two-game suspension has been fully served, and he'll be eligible to return against the Capitals on Saturday.

Gourde's brush with the hockey law concerned his illegal check to the head of Carolina's Jordan Staal in last Thursday's 6-3 win. However, having sat out subsequent contests against the Blues and Bruins, respectively, Gourde should be ready to rock in his standard middle-six role that includes about a minute and a half of power-play ice time (on average). Capping off his second full season with the Bolts, the 27-year-old winger has produced 20 goals, 24 assists and a plus-8 rating to complement eight power-play points in 2018-19.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Handed two-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde has been suspended two games for an illegal check to the head on Carolina's Jordan Staal.

Gourde's suspension comes at an inopportune time for his owners that are currently competing in the fantasy playoffs, as he's been a solid depth contributor throughout the season, notching 20 goals and 44 points in 75 games. The 27-year-old winger won't be eligible to return until March 30 against Washington.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Headed for hearing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde will have a hearing with the league Friday for an illegal check to the head of the Hurricanes' Jordan Staal.

Gourde could be facing a suspension for the hit, but that will be clarified following the hearing. The Lightning have plenty of firepower even if he's suspended for a game or two, with Saturday's contest versus the Blues being the first in question.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Notches 20th goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde score a short-handed empty-net goal in Monday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

Gourde has found twine in consecutive games to reach the 20-goal mark for the second time in his career. He's at 43 points in 73 games this season, down from the 64 points he posted in a breakout campaign last year. He does carry multi-position eligibility in some formats, and his 80 hits provide a physical edge to boost his value.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Dents twine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a goal in Tuesday's win over the Jets.

He opened the scoring just 1:34 into regulation with a power-play goal off a pass from Ondrej Palat. Gourde has clearly regressed since last year's 64-point campaign, but he's still on pace for a respectable 48 points.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: On a 50-point pace
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored his 16th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over Montreal.

Gourde won't come close to his dramatic rookie output, but he finally seems to be waking up a bit. He has four points, including three goals, in his last five games. Gourde may be valuable in some formats, as he is still on a 50-point pace.
