Lightning's Blake Coleman: Tallies empty-netter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored an empty-net goal on two shots and added two hits in Monday's 4-1 win over the Predators.

Coleman deposited his third goal of the year into an empty cage late in the third period. The 29-year-old forward has accumulated a respectable seven points, 23 shots and 12 hits through nine contests so far. Offense runs deep for the defending champions, making Coleman a viable fantasy option even in a third-line role.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Adds assist Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman recorded an assist and three shots on goal in Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

Coleman set up Barclay Goodrow for the empty-net goal in the third period, which was the latter's second tally of the game. The 29-year-old Coleman has flown under the radar a bit early in 2020-21, but he has two goals, four assists and 21 shots through eight games. He's added 10 hits and a plus-5 rating, but a lack of power-play time lowers the ceiling for Coleman's potential.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Two helpers in win over Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman notched two assists in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Red Wings.

The 29-year-old had been held off the scoresheet for three straight games coming into this one, but Coleman was able to break out with helpers on goals in the first and second periods. Despite his mini-slump, Coleman has a solid two goals and five points through six games as he fills a secondary role in the potent Tampa offense.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Benched for disciplinary reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jon Cooper said that Coleman was scratched for Saturday's loss to the Blue Jackets because he missed a team meeting, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Cooper relayed that he didn't know why Coleman missed the meeting, but team rules dictated that he'd be benched for this contest as a result. The 29-year-old likely will be back in action for Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes. Through three games this year, Coleman has posted two goals and an assist.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (coach's decision) isn't on the ice for warmups, indicating he won't be in the lineup for Saturday's clash with Columbus, Lightning Radio reports.

With Coleman out of the lineup, Alexander Volkov will hop onto the Lightning's third line against the Blue Jackets. Coleman's scratch from Saturday's contest has been deemed a coach's decision, so he'll hope to get back on bench boss Jon Cooper's good side ahead of Tuesday's game versus the Hurricanes.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Cleared from virus protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman is no longer listed in the COVID-19 protocol, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Coleman had resided on the list since Monday, and as evidenced by this news, he won't be forced to miss any game time. The 29-year-old is coming off a solid game Saturday, collecting a goal and assist in the 5-2 win over Chicago. Expect Coleman to assume his usual bottom-six role in the lineup for Thursday's game against Columbus.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Lands in COVID-19 protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman will be placed in COVID-19 protocol Monday, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Coleman hasn't officially be ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Stars, but there's a good chance that the 29-year-old winger is unavailable. If that's the case, either Alexander Volkov or Gemel Smith will slot into the bottom six in Coleman's place.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Produces two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored a goal on five shots and added an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Coleman collected his first two points of the year, with his goal standing as the game-winner Friday. He also assisted center Yanni Gourde for the Lightning's fourth goal. Coleman added a pair of hits Friday -- while his offense rarely jumps off the stats page, the 29-year-old winger is no stranger to brute force on the ice. He should be an effective depth scorer in a third-line role.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Provides insurance tally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored a goal on a team-leading five shots in Monday's 2-0 win over Dallas in Game 6. He also chipped in with four hits.

Coleman gave the Lightning a 2-0 cushion when he converted a one-timer from the right faceoff circle 7:01 into the second period. It was his first goal of the Stanley Cup Finals and snapped his seven-game goal drought. A trade deadline acquisition from New Jersey, Coleman notched 13 points in his 25 playoff games and added length to the Tampa Bay lineup in his bottom-six role.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Notches helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman had an assist, six hits and four PIM in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Stars in Game 1.

Coleman set up Yanni Gourde for the goal at 12:32 of the first period. Both of Coleman's minor penalties came in the second period, but the Stars failed to cash in on either power-play opportunity. Through 20 games, Coleman has four goals, seven assists, 53 shots on goal and 95 hits as a productive and physical presence on the third line. DFS managers may want to budget to add the 28-year-old for Monday's Game 2.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Sparks Game 4 rally
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored a goal on three shots and added a trio of hits in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Islanders in Game 4.

Coleman's goal came just 15 seconds after New York's Brock Nelson had opened the scoring midway through the second period. Yanni Gourde made a long lead pass to spring Coleman on a breakaway, and the 28-year-old deked Semyon Varlamov to tie the game. It was Coleman's fourth goal of the playoffs and snapped his six-game goal drought. The trade deadline acquisition from New Jersey has nine points in 17 playoff tilts.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Produces early assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman had an assist, three shots on goal and four hits in Monday's 8-2 win over the Islanders in Game 1.

Coleman got the puck to Brayden Point, who then dangled around Islanders goalie Thomas Greiss for the opening tally at 1:14 of the first period. Through 14 games, Coleman has a respectable three goals, five helpers, 60 hits, 36 shots on net and plus-6 rating. He plays bigger than his third-line role and can be a solid option for DFS managers.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Stands out in OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored twice on four shots and led all players with six hits in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win over Boston.

Both of Coleman's goals were ones for his personal highlight reel. His first was a diving re-direct in the first period to get the Lightning on the board. The second came midway through the third period when he beat Jaroslav Halak five-hole on a breakaway to make it 3-2 Tampa Bay. It was Coleman's most productive game since being acquired from the Devils at the trade deadline. He struggled offensively after the trade, putting up a single assist in nine regular-season games, but he's picked up four points (three goals, one assist in the last four playoff games.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Dishes three hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman delivered three hits and a shot on net in Tuesday's 2-1 loss to the Bruins.

Coleman's ice time hasn't taken a major hit in the transition from New Jersey to Tampa Bay, as he's averaging 15:43 per game -- 1:19 less than he did with the Devils. Due to Steven Stamkos' core injury, Coleman should remain in the top six for now. He's added more physicality than offensive upside, though, as the 28-year-old has notched just one assist compared to 15 hits through five contests.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Set to return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (personal) is expected to be back in the lineup for Saturday's matchup with Calgary, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Coleman missed Thursday's clash with Chicago following the birth of his child but appears set to get back into the lineup versus the Flames. The center is still looking to register his first point with the Lightning after joining the club at the trade deadline. Prior to the move, the Texas native racked up 21 goals and 10 helpers in 57 games with New Jersey.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Slated to sit Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (personal) isn't on the ice for warmups ahead of Thursday's game against the Blackhawks, suggesting he will sit out the game, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

Coleman's wife is expecting her first child and it will apparently prevent him from playing in at least Thursday's game against the Blackhawks. Luke Schenn will draw in as the Bolts go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen, while the earliest we could see Coleman as a new father would arrive Saturday when the Flames come to town.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman (personal) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's clash with Chicago.

Coleman's wife is reportedly in the process of having their first child, leaving the former Devils forward's status for Thursday's tilt up in the air. Confirmation on the 28-year-old's availability against the Blackhawks likely won't surface until Tampa Bay takes the ice for pregame warmups, so fantasy players thinking about deploying him in their daily lineups should plan accordingly.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Still pointless in Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman recorded a shot on net and five hits in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

This was Coleman's third game with the Lightning, and it's clear he's not going to get the same level of opportunities he enjoyed with the Devils. He's averaged 15:50 per game with no power-play minutes, but he's contributed defensively with 10 total hits thus far.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Expected to join team Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman is expected to suit up for his Lightning debut in Vegas on Thursday, Caley Chelios of the Lightning's official site reports.

The Lightning acquired Coleman from the Devils on Sunday, but he's not expected to be available for Monday's contest in Colorado. This should give the team some time to better decide where the 28-year-old winger will fit in the lineup. For now, he should probably be expected to slide into a middle-six role.

Lightning's Blake Coleman: Heads to Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Devils traded Coleman to the Lightning for forward Nolan Foote and Vancouver's 2020 first-round pick (previously acquired by Tampa Bay) on Sunday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

It was falsely reported earlier that Coleman would be heading to the Avalanche. He will, in fact, be in Colorado on Monday, but he'll be sporting a Lightning sweater. The 28-year-old is having a career year with 21 goals and 10 assists, and his 166 hits would be a team high in Tampa Bay. The Lightning have a stacked forward corps, but he'll be a lock for a top-nine role and should get power-play opportunities. Coleman is signed through next season at a cap hit of $1.8 million.
