Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Played through wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli played through a wrist injury in the playoffs and requires offseason surgery, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports. He is expected to be ready for training camp.

Despite a five-game pointless streak across Rounds 2 and 3, Cirelli was reasonably productive in the playoffs, closing out the Cup run with six points in his final eight contests. Still, Cirelli took a significant step back in 2020-21 with just 22 points in 50 games after producing 44 in 68 the year prior, so fantasy managers will want to proceed with some caution heading into drafts this fall.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Pockets pair of points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli registered a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders in Game 6.

Cirelli set up Brayden Point's goal that opened the scoring late in the first period, then he tallied one of his own in the middle frame, getting behind the New York defense and beating Semyon Varlamov five-hole to put the Lightning up 2-0. It snapped an eight-game goal drought for Cirelli, who also enjoyed his first multi-point performance since the opening round. The 23-year-old has four goals and five assists through 17 postseason contests.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Good to go for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jon Cooper expects Cirelli to "be okay" for Thursday's Game 3 versus the Islanders, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Cirelli exited Tuesday's Game 2 versus New York late in the third period after getting into a scrum with the Islanders' Travis Zajac, but it appears as though whatever forced him from that contest wasn't overly serious. The 23-year-old forward has picked up three goals and six points through 13 games this postseason.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Exits late Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli went to the locker room late in the third period after a scrum with the Islanders' Travis Zajac in Tuesday's Game 2, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Zajac's hands were in Cirelli's face as the two wrestled on the ice. It's unclear how exactly Cirelli was injured on the play. His status for Thursday's Game 3 in New York will likely be determined in the coming days at practice. After the game, head coach Jon Cooper said he expected Cirelli to be okay going forward, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Cirelli posted 10 hits and two shots on goal in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers in Game 5.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Goals in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-2 blowout Game 4 win over the Panthers.

Opening the scoring early in the contest, Cirelli scored five-hole on a breakaway feed from Alex Killorn to give the Bolts the lead. His dreadful end to the 2021 season, with one point in his final 20 games, has been saved by his performances in these playoffs. The 23-year-old now has goals in back-to-back games and provided two hits and two shots in this game. Tampa will look to close out the series Monday in Florida.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Offense completely dries up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli has just one assist in his last 20 games.

This offensive slump can't continue, right? Cirelli must be fighting through an injury. How else do you explain 21 points in 27 games, followed by one in the next 20? Cirelli has been clutch at every level and league, and he offers more on-ice value than points.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Mired in long offensive slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli has one assist in his last 16 games.

He has also gone 19 games without a goal. Cirelli has taken a step back offensively this season with just 22 points (nine goals, 13 assists) in 43 games. But he's not alone on the Bolts, which have struggled as a team to deliver offense at times this year. Cirelli will play an important role in the postseason but may not deliver what fantasy managers need in the stretch run.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Out for next two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli (upper body) won't play in either leg of the Wednesday-Thursday back-to-back set against Carolina, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.

Cirelli will have missed the last six games by the end of Thursday's clash, though coach Jon Cooper remains hopeful that he'll soon be categorized as day-to-day. That doesn't exactly sound like a ringing endorsement of Cirelli's availability for Saturday's matchup with Dallas, but more information about the second-line center's status should surface prior to that contest.

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Still out Monday

Lightning's Anthony Cirelli: Considered week-to-week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cirelli (upper body) has been deemed week-to-week.

Cirelli suffered an upper-body injury during Thursday's loss to the Panthers. It appears he'll miss at least a week, so it wouldn't be surprising if he was placed on injured reserve. The 23-year-old center enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, compiling four goals, six assists and 24 shots on net through 12 games.
