  • Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Picks up assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/13/17) Kunitz tallied an assist and one shot on goal against the Ducks on Sunday.

    Things haven't gone swimmingly for Kunitz in his first year with the Lightning. He has five points in 18 games to go with just 15 shots on net. His minutes are down, he's not playing on the power play, and it seems like the veteran's best days are far behind him.

    Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Nets just second goal of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/29/17) Kunitz scored the Lightning's only goal in a 4-1 loss to Anaheim on Saturday.

    It's just his second goal of the season (12 games). Kunitz's value at this point in his career is negligible, so don't even bother pulling him off the wire.

    Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Low ice time limits opportunity

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/8/17) Kunitz saw just 8:08 in ice time Saturday against Florida.

    It dropped from 10:47 in the opening game. Kunitz signed in Tampa for a shot at a middle-six role and a possible Cup run. At this rate, the 38-year-old winger will be hard-pressed to dress every game.

    Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Heading south

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Kunitz signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Lightning on Saturday.

    Kunitz was part of all three of the Pens' Stanley Cup victories in the Sidney Crosby era and is the only active player with four titles to his name. The gritty winger has seen his role change during his time in Pittsburgh as he went from a top-line scoring threat to a third-line grinder but could get a top-six assignment with Tampa Bay. The 2016-17 season was the first time the veteran failed to break the 30-point mark since his time with the Atlanta Thrashers back in 2005-06 when he played in just two games. If he can secure a more prominent role with the Lightning, the Ferris State product should get back to being a productive fantasy option.

    Penguins' Chris Kunitz: Available for Vegas expansion

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/19/17) Kunitz was left unprotected by the Penguins for the upcoming expansion draft.

    Kunitz is an unrestricted free agent, which means he could sign with Vegas, making him its one selection from the Penguins. With Pittsburgh limited in cap space -- just under $15 million -- there is no guarantee the four-time Stanley Cup champion will be back even if he is not selected in the expansion draft. The 37-year-old was more often in a bottom-six role this season, which certainly affected his production -- 29 points in 71 outings -- but he stepped up in the postseason with two goals and nine helpers.
