Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Strikes on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a power-play goal in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars in Game 4.

Gourde tied the game at 3-3 late in the second period with his seventh tally of the postseason. The 28-year-old forward has two goals in his last four games. He's up to 14 points, 47 hits and 50 shots on goal through 23 postseason appearances. Two of Gourde's goals have come on the power play, but he's done most of his work at even strength.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Lights lamp in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a goal on two shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Stars in Game 1.

Gourde netted the tying goal at 12:32 of the first period, but that was all the offense the Lightning could muster against Anton Khudobin. The tally was Gourde's sixth of the playoffs, to go with seven helpers, a plus-13 rating, 45 shots and 42 hits in 20 games.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Two more helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde collected a pair of assists and two shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Islanders in Game 4. He also had two PIM.

Gourde set up Tampa Bay's first and final goals, a breakaway tally by Blake Coleman and an empty-netter by Patrick Maroon. Gourde has three assists in the last two games, and he's totalled two goals and five points in the series so far. The 28-year-old has enjoyed a solid postseason with 12 points and a plus-11 rating.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Snags assist Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde posted an assist and five hits in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Islanders in Game 3.

Gourde had the lone helper on Mikhail Sergachev's first-period tally. In his last eight games, Gourde has three goals and three helpers with a plus-8 rating. The 28-year-old skated in a top-six role Friday with Brayden Point (undisclosed) out of action. Gourde could be a solid depth option for DFS managers if Point remains out for Sunday's Game 4.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Strikes twice in Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a pair of goals in Monday's 8-2 win over the Islanders in Game 1.

Gourde's first goal was nearly knocked out of the net by Andy Greene, but clearly crossed the goal line upon review. The 28-year-old Gourde added a power-play tally for the Lightning's last goal of the contest. The Quebec native has five markers, four assists, 32 shots on net and 27 hits through 14 games.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Chips in with goal, assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored a goal on three shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Boston in Game 3.

Gourde was aided on his first-period goal by the linesman, who collided with Boston defenseman Jeremy Lauzon along the wall, allowing Gourde to break in alone. Gourde outwaited Bruins goaltender Jaroslav Halak and roofed a shot to give the Lighting a 2-0 lead. Gourde, who also produced an assist later in the game, has three goals and four assists in 11 games.

Lightning's Yanni Gourde: Two points Monday including GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gourde scored the game-winning goal and added an assist Monday in the Lightning's 2-1 victory over the Blue Jackets in Game 4 of their first-round series.

All the game's scoring came during the first six minutes of the second period, as Gourde helped set up Barclay Goodrow for the opening tally before getting his stick on a Kevin Shattenkirk blast from the top of the circle. Gourde now has two goals and four points through seven games this postseason, as the Bolts look to finish off the Jackets in Game 5 on Wednesday..

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.
