  • Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Scores shorty in win over Hawks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/22/18) Kunitz scored a shorthanded goal during Monday's 2-0 win over Chicago.

    The tally was also the game-winner and snapped an 18-game goal drought. Considering the veteran has been receiving regular top-six looks of late, his lack of offensive production is all the more discouraging. At this stage of the game, there aren't many settings where Kunitz is worth a roster spot.

    Lightning's Chris Kunitz: Snaps 10-game point drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Kunitz earned the primary assist on Cedric Paquette's game-winning goal Tuesday in Toronto. The final score was 2-0.

    While it was nice that Kunitz snapped a 10-game point drought in this one, the fact that he's only found the scoresheet 11 times while averaging just over 11 minutes of ice time speaks to just how far he's fallen. In his 14th NHL season, the 38-year-old is a veteran depth presence for an explosive Tampa Bay forward corps, but offers little from a fantasy perspective these days outside of his 59 hits.

    Lightning's Chris Kunitz: First multi-point game of season Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/17) Kunitz contributed a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 6-2 drubbing of the Islanders.

    Kunitz assisted on Andrej Sustr's goal to make it 2-0 and concluded the scoring with his fourth tally of the season in the third period. This was the first multi-point performance of the year for the 38-year-old winger, so fantasy owners should be in no rush to request his services.

    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.
