Kucherov Gets Assist In Bolts' Win

News: Nikita Kucherov snagged a power-play assist in Sunday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: His pace has slowed a bit of late -- he has just five points (three goals, two assists) in his last 10 games. But he's still contributing and his 58 points in 73 games are good enough for third on the Bolts.

Bolts' Kucherov Gets Goal, Doubles PIM Total

News: Nikita Kucherov scored the Lightning's only goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Jets. It was 26th goal of the season.
Analysis: The goal came before he was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Toby Enstrom near the mid-point of the third. He's not a bully by any means -- he had just 16 PIM before Saturday's game. He's one of the league's best two-way players (plus-35) and he's on pace to come close to a 30-goal, 65-point season. Use with confidence.

Bolts' Kucherov: Among League's Stars?

News: Nikita Kucherov potted his 24th goal of the season in Thursday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He just keeps putting up points -- seven in his last 10 -- and now has 55 on the season. That point total puts him in the same class as guys like Logan Couture, Joe Thornton and Daniel Sedin. That's heady company for this sniping sophomore.

Tampa's Kucherov: Two Points Make 10 In 10 Games

News: Nikita Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: His breakout just keeps chugging along. He has 10 points, including six goals, in his last 10 games and now has 53 points in 61 games this season. That's just two points behind Steven Stamkos on the team's scoring leader list. He's a fantastic play and an outstanding keeper.

Bolts' Kucherov: Four-Game Goal Streak

News: Nikita Kucherov's goal streak stands at four games and four goals after he potted a marker against the Predators on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He also has one assist in those four games and a remarkable 21 goals and 48 points in 56 games this season. We expected an uptick in performance this season, but he never imagined this kind of explosion in just his second season. Use him well.

Tampa's Kucherov Back In Saddle With Goal

News: Nikita Kucherov tallied a goal and an assist in Thursday's win over Dallas.
Analysis: The goal was an empty-netter, but we don't care -- it was his first goal in 14 games, so it's nice for him to get back on track. Nikita Kucherov has 45 points, including 18 goals, in what's been an outstanding sophomore campaign.

Bolts' Kucherov Keeps Putting Up Points

News: Nikita Kucherov tallied an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Oilers.
Analysis: He was back with his reliable linemates, Ondrej Palat and Tyler Johnson after the latter had missed one game due to injury. The trio seem unstoppable this season and Nikita Kucherov is developing into a high-end winger sooner than any of us really believed. He's fantasy gold right now, what with 43 points in 46 games. Roll him with confidence.

Bolts' Kucherov Keeps Putting Up Points

News: Nikita Kucherov picked up an assist in Tuesday's loss to the Bruins. He was skating on a line with Ondrej Palat and Steven Stamkos.
Analysis: His usual mate, Tyler Johson, sat out with an injury, but it's clear that Nikita Kucherov can gel with other creative centers. He now has 42 points, including 25 helpers, in 45 games and his plus-27 leads the Bolts. He's talented and responsible. #NHLKeeper.

Bolts' Kucherov: Two Assists On Power Play

News: Nikita Kucherov set up two power-play goals in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over Montreal. He now has 13 points, including five goals, in his last 10 games.
Analysis: #Consistency -- this guy just keeps showing up game after game. He has 41 points in 42 games this season and sits behind only Tyler Johnson on the Bolts' top scorers' list. Yep -- that's two points ahead of Steven Stamkos. We're not saying this guy is better than Stammer, but he's sure producing like an elite level forward. You know what to do.

Bolts' Kucherov Assists On Two In Win

News: Nikita Kucherov added a pair of assists in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Senators.
Analysis: After yet another multi-point effort, Nikita Kucherov now has 16 points in his last 12 games and is tied for 11th in the league with teammate Steven Stamkos withs 39 points. The 21-year-old also has a plus-26 rating, best in the league, and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Bolts' Kucherov: 14 Points In Last 10 Games

News: Nikita Kucherov scored twice and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Sabres. He has 14 points, including eight goals, in his last 10 games.
Analysis: He's now flirting with the top-10 scorers' list -- not bad for a guy with just 91 games under his belt. He has a remarkable 37 points (17 goals, 20 assists) and is just a point back of Steven Stamkos and three behind Tyler Johnson for the team lead in points. He's been fantasy gold -- go ahead and admire the shine.

Kucherov Keeps On Rolling With 3 Points For Tampa

News: Nikita Kucherov had a three-point night -- one goal and two assists -- in Tuesday's win over the Penguins. The talented winger has 10 points, including five goals, in his last seven games.
Analysis: He was held off the score sheet in just one of those seven games and now has 32 points in 34 games. We knew he was good, but this good? We'd be exaggerating if we said we forecast this kind of breakout. But we'll take it. And so will all of you.

Bolts' Kucherov Scores 13th Of Season

News: Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to five games Friday, scoring his 13th goal of the season in a shootout loss to New Jersey.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov has been a machine lately, cranking out four goals and seven points in his past five games. The 21-year-old has been reliable all season long, delivering 30 points in 34 games. With 76 shots on goal, two game-winning goals, and a plus-18 rating, the second-liner has become an all-around fantasy stud in just his second NHL season. Logging top-six minutes on a Lightning team that sits third in the Eastern Conference, Kucherov should be owned in almost all leagues right now.

Bolts' Kucherov: Not Slowing Down

News: Nikita Kucherov's point streak now stands at four games and six points (three goals, three assists) after he picked up an assist in Tuesday's win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: The sniper now has 17 assists and 29 points in 33 games this season. We keep waiting for him to slow down, but that hasn't happened yet. Take full advantage.

Bolts' Kucherov Grabs Two Points In Loss

News: Nikita Kucherov factored into both of his team's goals, scoring and adding an assist in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov now has multiple points in two of his last three, and sits at 28 through 32 games. He may not keep up that pace over the course of the entire season, but the 21-year-old should still approach the 60-point mark.

Nikita Kucherov

Kucherov Nets Both Bolts' Goals In Win

News: Nikita Kucherov scored both goals in Thursday's 2-1 win over Carolina. He now has 25 points, including 11 goals, in 29 games this season.
Analysis: The first goal went into an open net after the puck took an odd bounce off the end boards straight to Nikita Kucherov. He then scored the winner when his pass went off a Canes' defender and into the net with just 30.3 seconds to play. His performance this season has gone largely undiscussed, but he should be on everyone's radar. He's just scratching the surface.

Nikita Kucherov

Bolts' Kucherov: Strong Season Continues

News: Nikita Kucherov's assist Monday against the Rangers gives him eight points, including four goals, in his last 10 games and 21 points in 25 games this season.
Analysis: Will he keep up this pace and deliver close to 70 points by season's end? Probably not, if only because the games get much, much tighter in the second half. Still, his skill is delicious and he's the kind of player who'll settle in around the 50-point mark on the season.

Nikita Kucherov

Bolts' Kucherov: Streak Now At Four Games

News: Nikita Kucherov extended his point streak to four games with an assist in Thursday's loss to Toronto. It was his 18th point of the season.
Analysis: He had 18 points in 52 games last season, but it has taken him just 21 to match that mark this year. He's actually on a pace that would net him 27 goals and 70 points. His pace will slow over the second half, but he should be good for solid contributions until Christmas or just beyond.

Bolts' Kucherov: 15 Points In Last 13 Games

News: Nikita Kucherov's strong season continued Tuesday night against the Islanders. He picked up an assist to extend his point streak to three games and three points (one goal, two assists).
Analysis: He now has 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 20 games, but more remarkably, 15 of those have come in his last 13 games. And he's been doing it the hard way at even strength -- just two of his 17 points have come with the man advantage. He's delivering the mail for fantasy owners #autoroll.

Bolts' Kucherov Pots Goal In Win

News: Nikita Kucherov potted his seventh goal of the season in Monday's 5-1 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov is now just two points away from the 18 point mark he set last season as he's now just under a point-per-game. He'll easily pass that and then some as he's rolling on the Bolts' second line and has developed into a real fantasy weapon.

Bolts' Kucherov: Another Goal And Assist

News: Nikita Kucherov scored a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over Washington. He now has nine points, including five goals, in his last five games.
Analysis: He's really clicking with center Tyler Johnson and fellow winger Ondrej Palat, and he should be considered a mandatory roll while he's streaking. He's that good.

Kucherov Nets First NHL Hat Trick In Bolts' Win

News: Nikita Kucherov netted his first career hat trick in Tuesday's 7-3 win over Arizona.
Analysis: This guy has amazing hands. And he's turned up the heat offensively in his last three, potting four goals and adding three assists. Take advantage of this run; it won't last forever. But he's not a one-hit wonder -- this guy might be a 35-goal guy (or better) in a couple seasons.

Bolts' Kucherov Nets First Goal

News: Nikita Kucherov netted his first goal of the season in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Wild.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov was perhaps the most effective skater for the Bolts in their weekend back-to-back, contributing three assists Friday night before notching the goal Saturday. With all of Brett Connolly, Ryan Callahan and Alex Killorn sidelined with injuries, opportunity knocks for Kucherov to grab a role on the Bolts' second line. It could allow him to continue to supply some useful numbers in the short term.

Bolts' Kucherov Dishes Out The Helpers

News: Nikita Kucherov dished out three assists in Friday's win over Winnipeg.
Analysis: Nikita Kucherov logged a season-high 15:43 of ice time in the win, skating on the third line with Cedric Paquette and Vladislav Namestnikov. Kucherov's value is currently limited due to his bottom-six role, but he is a staple on the second power play unit, where he picked up an assist Friday. The 21-year-old sophomore should easily surpass the nine goals and 18 points he recorded in 52 games last season.
