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.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Staying in New Jersey for now
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Avalanche's Blake Coleman: Traded to contender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Bags pair of assists in SO loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Records hat trick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Tallies shorthanded goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Supplies two points in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman notched a goal and a shorthanded assist in Monday's 7-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Coleman found Travis Zajac for the Devils' fifth goal of the game. The 28-year-old then tallied 18 seconds into the third period to extend the lead to 6-1. Coleman went plus-4 with four shots on goal in the contest. He's managed 19 points, 91 shots and 104 hits in 36 appearances this season.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman registered an assist, seven shots on goal, three hits and four PIM in Saturday's 6-4 loss to the Predators.

Coleman had a secondary assist on Travis Zajac's first-period tally, but he was buzzing all night in the offensive zone. Unfortunately, one of his two minor penalties was for a check to the head of Yannick Weber. It's unclear if any supplemental discipline will follow for Coleman. On a positive note, he's up to 16 points, 85 hits and 67 shots through 29 games.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Big night sinks Habs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored twice and added a pair of assists Thursday, finishing with four points in a 6-4 win over Montreal.

Don't get used to these kinds of performances from Coleman. The winger's four-point effort moved him up to 14 points in 24 games this season. After being held to four points in 16 games to begin the year, the 28-year-old has found the scoresheet 10 times over his last eight appearances and could be a solid depth add to fantasy rosters, provided Coleman is available and hasn't already been scooped up by another savvy owner. The Devils next play the Rangers on Saturday, and in the two teams' only other meeting this season, Coleman scored a goal.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Double trouble in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored twice in a 5-1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday.

Coleman has heated up in the last 10 days. He has points in five of six games and that includes four goals and two helpers. Coleman is likely on the wire given his poor overall numbers. He could help you in the short term.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Pots game-winner Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored his fourth goal of the season in Friday's 2-1 win over the Penguins.

His second-period tally proved to be the game-winner, and it was the product of equal parts luck and hustle -- he flipped a seemingly harmless shot towards the net, but Matt Murray lost track of the rebound and Coleman beat everyone else to the puck as it lay in the crease to bang it home. The 27-year-old has just six points through 18 games, but if he could face Pittsburgh every night he might be an All-Star -- Coleman has five goals in 10 career games against the Pens.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Point drought hits seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman mustered just one shot in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Flames, stretching his point drought to seven games.

Coleman's hot start is a thing of the distant past -- he has just one goal for his only point in the past 12 games after opening the season with two goals and an assist in the first two games. A repeat of last season's 22-goal campaign seems unlikely.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Finds assist column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman picked up an assist in a 7-2 loss to the Sabres on Saturday.

Already with a pair of goals to his name this season, Coleman picked up his first assist of the year in Saturday's lopsided loss, giving him three points through two games. The 27-year-old is coming off a 2018-19 campaign where he recorded a career-high 36 points and eclipsed the 20-goal mark (22) for the first time in his career.

Devils' Blake Coleman: Highlight-reel effort wasted
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coleman scored two goals on four shots while adding three hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 5-4 shootout loss to the Jets.

His second tally of the night was an early candidate for goal of the year in the NHL, as Coleman lifted the puck over Laurent Brossoit one-handed while falling to the ice after getting tangled up with Dmitry Kulikov. Coleman scored a career-high 22 goals last season, but unless he sees consistent shifts alongside Nico Hischier or Jack Hughes, the 27-year-old winger is unlikely to become a regular offensive threat for the Devils.
