Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Tied for team lead in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev picked up an assist in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Senators.

Don't look now, but the point moves Sergachev into a three-way tie for the team lead in scoring with six points (all assists). It will likely be the only time the young Russian can say he led the team along with Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov. Sergachev's game has really grown and it won't be long before he's flirting with the 50-point plateau. He's that good.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Scores more than all other Bolts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev picked up three assists to lead all Tampa Bay scorers Thursday night in a 5-2 win over Florida.

Check your wire just in case he's still out there -- he was overlooked in some formats because his offence took a step back in 2018-19. But Sergachev looks like the player we all saw at the World Championship -- the player who took his game to new heights. Yes, Kevin Shattenkirk's arrival complicates Sergachev's role on the second power-play unit. But with efforts like this, the talented Russian will be hard to keep out of that role.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Elevates game at World Championship
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev delivered one goal and six assists in 10 games for Team Russia at the IIHF World Championship.

His fantasy value took a step back in 2018-19, but moments like this show Sergachev's immense potential. Segachev was playing with and against elite talent in the tournament and he still managed to put up great numbers. The Russian may come a bit cheaper at the fall draft because his numbers were relatively low last season. You could make a pretty penny should he play up to his capabilities.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Struggles with increased role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev scored a goal and added an assist in four playoff games against Columbus.

He started strong -- really strong. The points came in the first two games, but when Victor Hedman went down, Sergachev started gripping his stick way too tightly and went minus-5 in the last two games of the series with just two shots. The guy has a strong future, but it's clear his game still requires plenty of growth.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Good to go for postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev (rest) was a full participant for Monday's practice, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Sergachev was rested for Saturday's game against the Bruins and is expected to play in Game 1 against the Blue Jackets. The 20-year-old will likely resume his normal role after producing 32 points in 75 games this year.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev (rest) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game against Boston, Erik Erlendsson of reports.

The Lightning are locked into the No. 1 seed in the East, so there's no need for them to risk Sergachev suffering an injury in a meaningless contest. The 20-year-old blueliner will return to his usual role for Game 1 of Tampa Bay's first-round series.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Showing real growth in game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev picked up an assist in Thursday's 3-1 win over Toronto.

Sergachev has stepped up in a big way with Victor Hedman sidelined -- he has seven points, including six assists, in his last five games. His overall numbers look low relative to his rookie season, but it's clear his game has really grown. Fantasy owners should file his name away for next season and maybe sneak him onto their rosters.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Third straight two-point outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev lit the lamp and added an assist in Monday's win over the Senators.

Although he is distributing the puck well, Sergachev was on a 12-game goalless streak heading into this contest. He was itching to get back on track as he recorded a season-high six shot on net. This was Sergachev's third straight two-point outing, but this production may fizzle out once Victor Hedman (upper body) and Anton Stralman (lower body) return from injury.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Four points in last two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev set up two goals Saturday in a 6-3 loss to Washington.

He has actually delivered two consecutive two-assist games after six games with no points. Sergachev has taken a step back this season, at least from an offensive perspective. His fantasy future remains solid -- learning the defensive side of the game will only ratchet up Sergachev's value going forward.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Four points in last six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev scored his fifth goal of the season in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Senators.

He's had a slow offensive season, but Sergachev has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last six games. And three goals in his last eight games. Sergachev may provide some late-season value for fantasy owners in deep formats. His keeper value remains strong.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Snaps eight-game point slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev scored his third goal of the season in Thursday's 6-0 win over Dallas.

It snapped an eight-game point slump. Sergachev will be hard-pressed to hit the 30-point mark this season. Sophomore slumps are pretty standard for the majority of NHLers and especially for young defenders. Sergachev might not help you in a single-year league right now, but his future is very bright.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Focused on defense, not offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev has gone eight games without a point.

Sergachev has taken a step back offensively this season, but his overall game hasn't. His focus this season has been on his own-zone play and that part of his development has grown dramatically. Sergachev has high-end potential, and with the right development, he could someday be a top-pairing stud. Great for long-term keepers, but not for single-year formats.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Sitting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev is a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Sharks.

Sergachev's a talented offensive player who still has a lot of learning to do in his own end, and Tampa Bay can't afford many defensive gaffes against a San Jose team that ranks third in the league with 3.57 goals per game. Braydon Coburn will sub in on the Tampa Bay blue line.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Tallies rare goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev scored a goal on three shots, adding a hit and two blocks, in a 2-0 victory against the Stars on Tuesday.

All the sudden, the 20-year-old is a scoring machine. He has two goals and five points in the last five games, tallying at least a point in four of those five contests. Prior to this little run, Sergachev had no goals and 12 points in 39 games. The 20-year-old had nine goals and 40 points in 79 games as a rookie last season, so it's possible he's turning his season around, but more than likely, this is a hot streak that won't continue. Sergachev holds a lot more value in dynasty leagues than re-draft formats.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Flashes offensive skills in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev picked up two assists in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

It's only his second multi-point game of the season, with the other also coming against Columbus back in October. Sergachev has a goal and 16 points through 41 games, and while the 20--year-old blueliner has plenty of upside, he'll need to work his way into a more prominent role on the Lightning to really accelerate his scoring pace in the second half.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Ready to roll Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev (undisclosed) will play in Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Sergachev departed Thursday's game versus the Flyers due to the undisclosed issue, but it's apparently not a concern moving forward. The third-year blueliner has supplied 12 assists over 37 games during the 2018-19 season, but he has yet to break through with a goal despite 66 shots on net. It seems like just a matter of time for Sergachev, who recorded nine goals over 79 contests last season.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Banged up during win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev exited Thursday's 6-5 win over the Flyers due to an undisclosed injury,

Sergachev suffered the injury when he blocked a shot from Philadelphia's Scott Laughton with his knee. The severity of his injury has yet to be revealed, but another update on his status should surface prior to Saturday's clash with the Canadiens.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Revolving door on third pairing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev practiced on the third pairing Thursday.

The bottom pairing has been a revolving door, but Sergachev has still managed to play in 36 games this season. While his production has been disappointing (12 assists), Sergachev's game continues to grow. The long-term investment remains strong, but short-term he needs to be on your bench.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Will watch from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev will be a healthy scratch Thursday against Calgary

Sergachev has had a disappointing 2018-19 season to this point, having failed to score a goal in 35 games. He does have 12 assists but has certainly not lived up to expectations. It's hard to imagine a scenario in which the 20-year-old is scratched for an extended period considering he's one of Tampa Bay's most promising prospects. Braydon Coburn will draw into the lineup as Sergachev's replacement.

Lightning's Mikhail Sergachev: Running in quicksand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sergachev put up his eighth assist of the season Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Sabres.

Sergachev remains goalless on the season and his eight points in 25 games are a long way off his remarkable 40-point rookie season. Still, we're pretty sure he's much more than Tyler Myers, who has never been able to come close to the heights of his rookie stanza. Sergachev's all-around game and skating should allow him to adapt to the NHL's speed. But right now, he's struggling to simply stop sinking in quicksand. Sergachev just isn't delivering enough fantasy value to merit rostering him.
