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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Contrary to a previous report, Coleman hasn't been traded to the Avalanche, AJ Haefele of DNVR reports.
Although Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reported that Coleman was heading to Denver, both teams have refuted the claim, according to Abbey Mastracco of The Record. Coleman is certainly still on the trade block, and he's not expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Blue Jackets.
The Devils traded Coleman to the Avalanche on Sunday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Not long after trading captain Andy Greene to the Islanders, the Devils sent Coleman to the Avalanche. The details of the trade haven't been disclosed yet. The 28-year-old Coleman has enjoyed a career year with the Devils, posting 21 goals and 10 assists over 57 games, and he's added a physical presence with a whopping 166 hits. He should slot into the top six while also playing on the power play as the Avalanche gear up for a Stanley Cup push. Coleman is signed through the 2020-21 season at $1.8 million per year.
Coleman collected two power-play assists in a 5-4 shootout loss to Montreal on Tuesday.
The two-point night ends a four-game pointless skid for Coleman and moves the winger's point total this season to 29. A down year for the Devils as a team, it's been a solid one for Coleman, needing just eight more points over the remainder of the regular season to set a new career high. If Coleman keeps having nights like this, the team will have no choice but to give him more time on the power play.
Coleman posted his fourth multi-goal game of the season with three goals, six shots, four hits and two PIM in a 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
This was Coleman's first hat trick of the season. He's been very solid all season and excellent lately with six goals in the last six games. He might see a decrease in his scoring production because his 12.9 shooting percentage is a little higher than his career norm, but even if that happens, Coleman should still set career highs in all the scoring categories. He has 18 goals and 26 points in 46 games this season.
Coleman potted a shorthanded goal and doled out four hits Saturday in the Devils' 5-2 loss to the Avalanche.
It's the first special-teams goal of the season for the winger, who typically isn't included on the Devils' power-play unit. Though he holds a spot on New Jersey's second line, Coleman hasn't been a standout fantasy contributor. Through 41 outings, he's tallied 13 goals and eight assists to go with 28 PIM.
