Lightning's Brayden Point: Points in every game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored the game-winning goal in overtime Thursday in a 3-2 victory over the Blue Jackets.

Point has four points (two goals, two assists) in three games and points in every game. His production dropped last year, but it seems as though he's back into 2018-19 form. That's fantastic news for the Bolts and for anyone who drafted Point.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Offers assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point recorded an assist, five shots on goal and two PIM in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blackhawks.

Point collected the secondary helper on Steven Stamkos' insurance tally late in the third period. That assist gave Point a goal and two helpers through the first two games of the year. The star center has added nine shots and a plus-3 rating, and he's shown no trouble adjusting to Stamkos occupying the right wing that Nikita Kucherov (hip) played on last year.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Two points in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point registered a goal, a power-play assist and four shots in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Blackhawks.

Point didn't factor into any of Tampa Bay's three first-period goals, but he assisted on Steven Stamkos' second-period power-play snipe and lit the lamp himself in the third. If this performance is any indication, Point should have no problem piling up points as the Lightning's first-line center, even without Nikita Kucherov (hip) by his side.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Stays hot to close out playoffs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored a goal on two shots and won 12 of 16 faceoffs (75.0 percent) in a 2-0 win over Dallas on Monday in Game 6.

Point opened the scoring with a first-period power-play goal, following his own shot and knocking home the rebound with 7:37 left in the frame. The goal, Point's league-leading 14th of the playoffs, proved to be the Cup-clinching strike. The 24-year-old finished the series on a five-game point streak, with five goals and three assists during that stretch. Point was the runner-up in voting for the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP after amassing 33 points in 22 games.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Point streak at four games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point had a pair of assists, five shots on goal and four hits in Saturday's 3-2 double-overtime loss to the Stars in Game 5.

Point helped out on goals by both Ondrej Palat and Mikhail Sergachev in the contest. During a four-game point streak, Point has four tallies and three assists. The stud center has 32 points (13 goals, 19 helpers), 66 shots and a plus-12 rating through 22 contests.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Buries two more goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored twice in Friday's 5-4 overtime win over the Stars in Game 4. His second goal came on the power play.

Point erased the Lightning's early two-goal deficit with a pair of his own, giving the star center 13 tallies in 21 playoff appearances. He's reached the 30-point mark for this postseason while adding 61 shots, a plus-12 rating and six power-play points. Those strong numbers could have him in the running for the Conn Smythe Trophy if the Lightning get the final win necessary to lift the Stanley Cup.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Tallies goal No. 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored a goal on four shots and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win over Dallas in Game 3.

Point collected his league-leading 11th goal of the playoffs when he finished off a 3-on-1 rush in the second period. He added an assist on Ondrej Palat's goal just under seven minutes later to send Tampa Bay into the second intermission with a 5-1 lead. Point now has 28 points in 19 playoff games, trailing only teammate Nikita Kucherov's league-leading 30.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Opens scoring in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored a power-play goal on his only shot of the game Monday in a 3-2 win over Dallas in Game 2.

Point made his lone shot on goal count, burying a one-timer from the slot to open the scoring midway through the first period. The goal was the first of three in a four-minute stretch for the Lightning. Point was minus-3 and failed to find the scoresheet in Tampa Bay's Game 1 loss, so it was good to see him provide a meaningful response early in Game 2. He now has 10 goals and 26 points in 18 playoff games.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Islanders, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Point will return to the lineup after he was forced to miss Game 5 with an undisclosed issue. Now healthy, the 24-year-old center will slot back into his usual spots on the Lightning's top line and first power-play unit. Point will be a huge addition to the lineup, as he's racked up nine goals and 25 points across 16 playoff contests in the bubble.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's Game 6 against the Islanders.

Point's status for Thursday's contest won't be cleared up until Tampa Bay takes the ice for pregame warmups, so fantasy players hoping to slot him into their daily lineups should plan accordingly. If he's able to go, the 24-year-old pivot will slot back into his usual spots on the Lightning's top line and first power-play unit. Point has been one of the best players in the NHL during postseason play, having racked up nine goals and 25 points while posting a plus-13 rating in just 16 contests.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Status unclear for Game 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jon Cooper said it's too early to determine if Point (undisclosed) will be available for Thursday's Game 6 versus the Islanders, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

Point left Sunday's Game 4 in the third period with an injury and wasn't able to play in Tuesday's Game 5. The star center remains day-to-day and will likely be a game-time decision Thursday. Carter Verhaeghe is likely to remain in the lineup if Point can't play.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Not playing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Islanders, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

This is terrible news for the Lightning after Point departed Game 4 on Sunday midway through the third period and didn't return. The bright side is that Tampa Bay is up 3-1 in the series, so there's a chance the team is being extra cautious with the star center. Games 6 and 7, if necessary, are scheduled for Thursday and Saturday, so poolies interested in Point will want to keep a watchful eye on his status in the coming days.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Doesn't finish Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) didn't play in the last nine minutes of Sunday's 4-1 win over the Islanders, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Point sat out of Game 3 with an undisclosed injury, and he absorbed a hard hit from Adam Pelech in the third period of this contest. With the Lightning holding a two-goal lead at the time of the hit, Point may have been kept out as a precautionary measure, but we should have a better grasp on his condition before Game 5. Point posted a goal and an assist over 18:24 before taking a seat.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) will play in Sunday's game versus the Islanders, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

After sitting out for Game 3's loss, Point is back centering the top line Sunday. He's been remarkable this postseason with four goals and 12 assists over the last eight games.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) will not suit up for Friday's Game 3 showdown with the Islanders, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Point's absence will be a huge blow to Tampa Bay as he's tallied 23 points in 15 games since the NHL returned to play. The 24-year-old center skated at practice Friday, so it appears that he may be close to returning. His next chance to suit up will arrive Sunday for Game 4.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Present at morning skate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) took part in morning skate ahead of Friday's Game 3 against the Islanders, Diana C. Nearhos of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Point exited Wednesday's Game 2 win in the second period with an undisclosed injury, but his presence on the ice at morning skate bodes well for his chances of suiting up for Game 3. The 24-year-old pivot is currently the odds-on favorite to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy having racked up 10 goals and 27 points while posting a plus-12 rating through 20 games thus far this postseason.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Status for Game 3 uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Jon Cooper had no update on Point (undisclosed) after he left the Wednesday's Game 2 versus the Islanders in the second period with an injury, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear how Point suffered his injury, but it had to be significant to keep the Lightning's leading playoff scorer out of action. Per Smith, the Lightning may know more about Point's status Thursday. As of now, it's unclear if the star center will be available for Game 3 on Friday. If he can't play, Mathieu Joseph or Carter Verhaeghe are the leading options to enter the lineup, while Yanni Gourde would likely see top-six minutes.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Leaves bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point (undisclosed) left Wednesday's Game 2 against the Islanders, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

It's unclear how Point suffered the injury, but the star center was only able to take two shifts during the second period. He was accompanied by the training staff down the tunnel shortly after his second shift with 15:00 to play in the second. In his absence, Cedric Paquette has moved up to the top-nine forward group.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Carves up Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point scored twice, dished three assists and went plus-4 in Monday's 8-2 win over the Islanders in Game 1.

Point scored the first and fifth Lightning goals in the contest, the latter of those two coming on the power play. He also assisted on tallies by Victor Hedman (power play), Nikita Kucherov and Ondrej Palat. Point's point-streak is now at seven games, during which he has four goals and 12 helpers. He's up to eight scores and 15 assists through 14 contests.

Lightning's Brayden Point: Two helpers in Game 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Point had two assists and two shots in Monday's 3-2 double-overtime win over Boston in Game 5. He also had a pair of hits.

Point set up both the game-tying and game-winning goals as Tampa Bay won its fourth straight to close out the series. He won a faceoff to create Anthony Cirelli's tying goal in the third period, one of his 13 faceoff wins on 20 attempts (65.0 percent). On the game-winner, it was Point's aggressive forecheck and puck retrieval that began the sequence leading to Victor Hedman's series-clincher. Point heads into the Eastern Conference Finals on a blistering six-game point streak, having amassed two goals and nine assists in that time.
